    Posted several times in here about Engines and rear ends and weight capacity for towing. I pulled into the driveway today with a 2020 Ram 2500 with the Cummins diesel. Towing a 30 Ft 8,000 lb trailer was white knuckle saying it mildly with the Ram 1500. Haven't hooked up yet, but it seems like one awesome truck. Thanks for all of the help the last few days.

    Reading your post was sorta confusing at first, thought you were saying pulling a 30' 8K lbs trailer with a 2020 CTD was a white knuckle experience...there would be something wrong there, most likely negative tongue weight. One tip while pulling that trailer with your new CTD, don't forget the trailer is behind you...lol (you'll understand once your hooked up)
    A lot of white knuckle experience is due to poor set up of the truck and trailer with the WDH. At times pull a trailer that's 32' overall that pushes the 8K lbs barrier with my EcoD, I can keep one hand on the wheel with the cruise set.

    Congrats on the new truck. I just upgraded to a 2019 2500 with the hemi and it is a world of difference from my 1500 pulling my 8k lb TT. I know with the diesel it will do great.
