    Dealer made me a stupid good deal, so I traded

    Flame Red. My buddy got his 1500 in this color. Seems like it is not a popular color except on the Rebel.

    Gas vs. Diesel, 3.73 vs. 4.10, 2500 vs. 3500

    Actually 15k will not be over the limit. My 2020 6.4, 4.1, 4x4 max towing is over 17000 lbs.

    Used ecodiesel buying advice

    do some research through the Ecodiesel subforum. They have had their share of issues. The carfax will only tell you maintenance records (if they were shared by the business) and any wrecks. Good luck, hope you are getting a great deal on it. I've read enough on them that would make me think...

    engine oil switch to synthetic

    You will have no issues switching. In fact, you could change with synthetic one time and go back to regular oil if you wanted. But don't mix two different types. Just go with what Ram recommends for the truck. That is the main thing, stay with the weight they recommend.

    2016 Ram 3.6 running hot when towing

    When I towed with my 3.6, 3.55 2017, my numbers looked similar. In fact, I think my transmission was above 210. I think you are fine.

    4th or 5th gen Rebel. Help me decide

    5th Gen hands down. At first I didn't like the 5th Gen, but man the 5th Gen Rebel looks great and the interior is so much better. But it's your truck and you will be living with it. Good luck.

    AISIN or 68rfe?

    If you go diesel with the 2500, you will probably have more squat, not to mention the payload is so low with the 2500 and diesel. Good luck!

    6.4 towing hold back trouble

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean, but I assume you mean the engine is holding higher RPM's to keep the truck from coasting down a hill. Mine does this as has my last 3 vehicles. It lets the engine do the braking so you don't overheat your brakes. It's actually for safety, if this is what...

    NEED ADVICE - About to Buy My Sweetie a Brand New 2021 RAM 1500 Laramie

    1. etorque (if she's used to the start / stop). 2. 20" better ride and cheaper tires 3. steps - absolutely needed for my wife to get in the truck. 4. I would stay away from the 12" screen, still seems to have quality issues. Good luck!

    1500 Hemi 5.7L vs 2500 Cummins 6.7L

    I would also, as others have stated, go with a newer 6.4 with 8 speed. Good luck.

    Looking at a ram 2017-2019 v6 towing experience

    I had a 17 3.6 3.55 RCSB with 2wd (Express model). I towed a small uhaul a couple times and knew it was there, but didn't have any issues. It was rated to tow 7700 lbs. If you get a longer cab, longer bed, higher trim, and / or 4wd, it will be lower because of the added weight to the truck...

    Anybody got the 3.6 and 355 gears want to

    Over 75k miles in 17 I got 26 hwy and 21 city. The best I got was 31 on a 400 mile trip, going no more than 65. I got 16 towing a small uhaul trailer. BTW, I drive the speed limit. and this was hand calculated by taking mileage between fill ups and dividing by how many gallons I put in.

    beautiful truck, congrats!

    My local dealer wants to trade me out of my 2019 6.4

    also, if the diesel is a 2500, your payload will be 1000 lbs lower. If you are happy with the Hemi, I would stick with it. Good luck!

    2021 Ram 2500 diesel help rides terrible

    other than stepping back down to a 1500 Hemi with 3.92 rear end (which would be the best choice for your situation), I would lower the tire pressure to what your door jam calls for (mine shows 60 and 65 for my 2500 Hemi. I'm not sure if there is a lot else you can do. Good luck.

    Should I buy 2021 RAM?

    If you will be doing a lot of hauling or towing make sure it has the 4.10 rear end. I love my 2020 Ram 2500 6.4. Good luck. The 6.4 is great with the 8 speed.

    2019 Ram 1500 Classic White Warlock "Whitney"

    too bad your initials are JC, then you could call y'all JC Whitney. Of course, you could call it JB Whitney. Nice truck, good luck!

    The new guy with towing questions!

    I would absolutely go with the 3.92. 4k miles is quite a bit and the gas mileage difference is not much. If you want better gas mileage, just drive the speed limit (or a couple mph slower) and drive smoother. Good luck, and welcome! PS, it's much cheaper to add it at the factory than if you...
