Anyway, it will be close if I go with that 2910. # , but if I'm over a 100#s don't think it is the end of the world...

Awesome, yes you will be close so if you pack carefully it will be doerable, what I would do is after you get it loaded take it to the scale to weight it. Congrats on you new Mega Cab and please post some pics.

Ram 2500 6.4L W/ 4.10 rear gears

Thanks Big 1, I only have a few miles on it but I do love it. Just concerned about the payload limitations , 2910 seems low for a heavy duty, I guess I will be limited to the size of a 5er I get. Hoping a 10,000 lbs 5er will be okay, Im sure I will be over the payload by at least 200lbs however.

here are a couple pics..

Rocky3204, Well I started out wanting to get a 5'er and I was looking at some pretty nice one with about 1550 lbs or something like that and with that is very doerable, if you had a diesel the payload would be even lower, like about 2300 to 2400 lbs because they are heavier.The Mega Cab add more weight so you lose a little on payload but you should be good to go, and if your MC is load it take away more weight.

I have just a Bighorn and my payload is 3,300 lbs I had my order and I didn't get a lot of option but I got the 8.4 screen with Nav, step bar, 20" wheel, spray bedliner and that's pretty much it but all of this is with the 4.10 gears. I did add a backup camera later but nothing else.
