If you go with the Ram I'll be soliciting a review from you. Although my upgrade is still months away I've narrowed it to Ford or Ram, lord knows I've worn the forum out asking questions about TV's and 5'ers for our future upgrades! Very glad people offer such good info here, and good luck.

I have the '15 Ram 3500 in my signature. it's an SLT. I've put 12,000 miles on it.

DEF needs filled about every 6,000 miles (unloaded). Must faster when towing a heavy load.

There are 2 fuel filter/water separators.

The 5th wheel/gooseneck prep is an option I have. I would only get this option if you want to spend the money to buy the hitch that works with the factory pucks.

No problems with the truck so far.

He CAN use a picture frame adapter and his own hitch if he has one now..Don't "necessarily" HAVE to purchase a hitch that fits the puck system...just depends how deep one's pockets is..

Update

Well I spent the whole day looking at trucks, thinking about trucks, etc. First I got 2 estimates on my truck the highest one is likely the best I can get for it. New ones are scarce and expensive. Started searching for used and they are also scarce.

Right now I don't know which way to go. Ever been there?

Today, I'm checking on having the "Bulletproof" mod done to my current truck, and waiting on several who are looking for a late model 3500, long or short bed, 6.7 diesel with a Bighorn or Laramie pkg.

Hey Norty. I was there for 2 years prior to my recent upgrade. I have learned to take the emotion out of it, step back and check the boxes. Get a good handle on what your trucks value is, both private and trade in first. Once you have that number now enter a search in Auto Trader for all your minimums as far as amenities go. You will get e-mails when something matches your perfect vehicle if you set it up.

This last go around I was offered 5K difference between trade in's and when it came down to 2 trucks that met my budget, trim and build up I then started negotiating. I made the deal through e-mail and texts then traveled 500 miles to do the deal. It was an 8K difference between the 2 deals and overall the best deal I could find on both sides of it.

Patience is the best advice I can give you in this. Open your search up to a broader net. The deals are out there, just need to dig them up.

On your 6.0 the bulletproofing is a few K and there is guy in Atlanta I think that does it. Do you know your current delta between oil and coolant? If it's more than 20 degrees under stress then I would look into changing your oil cooler. When I first got my 6.0 I dropped, flushed, replaced every fluid, added 4" turbo back exhaust and put the coolant filter on.

Every 2 seasons I changed the coolant and tranny fluid. My delta never went over 20 degrees unless I was on a steep grade climbing, then it came right back down. The oil cooler usually leads to the failure in these engines and is what I believe the most critical part to monitor.

Good luck!

Check out Kernersville Dodge Ram dealerships inventory in NC. They have one of the largest truck inventories on the EC for Rams. Multiple models to choose from both new and used. I found several there, just no used at the time, but tons of new ones all with multiple build sheets to choose from.

Since your probably getting a factory warranty under most cases any dealer will take you in to do work.
