Folks buy Rams because they're cheaper. The cheapskates I work with all drive Rams. You know those guys? The ones always dipping into the have a penny give a penny tray at the 7-11.

Fanboy and trolling aside. Central NY is lousy with Super duties with Ram taking second. I am noticing GM.s newest release more on the roads, and when I see one, I wonder did they just massage a Fords front end?

Purely unscientific observation on the local roads!

Unfortunately, I didn't fully understand this until after I bought one and it started having problems. The fact that the typical ram owner is a cheapskate doesn't bother me. The problem is that the manufacture and dealerships know that they can provide a substandard truck and horrible service because the cheapskates don't care if things don't work, or break. They have and will continue to settle for whatever they're given, and then, they'll defend the piece of junk to the grave. LOL. All they care about is that a hunk of metal can tow a heavy load up a hill.


The dodge fan boys hate the dodge/ram dealerships. Now that I have owned a Mexican Fiat Oui-Oui (La fiat wee-wee), I understand why.
The only thing more incompetent than Ram is Bye-don and his supporters.

Thats pretty close to 2K more then what I am towing with my 2014, although it does a great job, being a SRW with a short bed ,its got a bit longer wheel base then yours being the megacab, and its all I want with a SRW.


The trick is this 5th wheel has a 2435 dry pin weight. Start with a trailer that has 3000-3200 dry pin weight and it does not work and/or add a W/D in the nose. The Aisin/HO helped also. Never lacked power and towed in windy conditions quite often.

WOW, that's harsh.

My "cheap" RAM still doing it's job and still looking good after 6 years and 84k towing this measly combo at 35k up and down the little hills on the West coast.
