Dodge wouldn't fix it at first, they said they wanted to try to clean it . Pretty much gave him the run around for 3 weeks.

And going down the same hill was just as easy. No complaints on the breaking. I love the fact that I can pre-program towing settings for 4 different trailers. And the power adjust mirrors are great.

Question for ya; what are the capacities for towing/payload? I can't get any info on the website to even configure one with the 6.4 yet GRRR
How is the ride when empty compared to half tons you've driven? Is the change to rear coils a noticeable improvement?
Thanks!

EDIT- found some info onthe US site (stupid Canadian site... a CC, 6'4" bed, 4x4 auto w/6.4L and 4.10s still has 3,171lbs payload and 15,500 max towing?? YES PLEASE! That's almost double my existing payload for a near apples to apples comparison. Sweet.

The ride is way better than any other ton on the market. My wife even commented the other night that it rides as good as my half ton Silverado if not better. Yes you can tell it is stiffer. But it is a smooth ride still.

When towing 12,000lbs I knew it was back there. But it was very easy to handle. The only time I felt any back lash from the trailer was going down the 4 lane at 70mph and hit a group of dips that are in rhythm. Lol. And they can get you bouncing pretty good. Lol. But it was no where near as bad as pulling an 8,000lbs load in my Silverado at the same speed. Which almost made me wreck the first time I done it. Lol.

sounds like this 6.4L is a real animal !

15.5K in towing with 4.10's = bad ass I think.

I have 3.73 gears in mine. And 12,000lbs was cake. I couldn't imagine 4.10s in it.

especially even with 3.73's and you are telling us you can break the tires loose with traction control on !

these motors must be underrated from the factory.

Only 2 cup holders in the back? My quad cab limited has 4. 2 on the floor and two in the food down middle arm rest. What's the cut out in the middle back seat? Is the arm rest missing? I'm confused.

Yeah I do agree with you about the ride, when I first test drove my 2500 hemi I was surprise on how smooth it rode.
