Congrats, new vehicles are the greatest! Now that my truck is paid off I promised myself that I wouldn't get anything new for a while. LOL

Thanks a lot guys! I wasn't planning on buying until next spring but when they offered more for my Ram than I could sell it outright...just had to. I do love the new truck smell...especially when you are burning off all the undercoating on the exhaust and engine and tranny!

I gotta say I am very impressed with the pulling power! It out pulls my old Hemi no problem at all! I was able to accelerate and pass vehicles (in the slow lane) on hills the Ram would only slightly gain speed. I also got 12% - 13% better fuel economy and I was driving it as hard as normal. I usually got about 8 mpg with the Ram and got 9.05 mpg with the Tundra. Seems weird to see the gas gauge drop faster than the Ram but then I remember the Tundra is only 26 gallons where the Ram was 34!

I had the same truck and just traded it on a F250. The truck was a stump puller, but short on payload which I wanted. I had no problem with how it pulled my 8000 lb. trailer. Yo will have no problem at all pulling your trailer, but you will need anti-sway.

Yeah really! I bet I would still feel the 19H as they still move a ton of wind!

I added a Reese friction bar I had bought with our old 232 and towed with an AWD Astro so hopefully that will suffice for sway control. I also got a call that my new ARE V-series cap is in. Hopefully I can get it installed Friday for our next week long camping trip starting...Friday!
