After a long debate with myself I have finally decided to trade the 2011 ram in for a 2015 ram 2500 tradesman with the 6.4 Hemi.

Nice looking truck, how many miles on her?

Thanks. It has 134000. A little on the high side but seems to be well taken care of. Miles don’t worry me like they used too. Paid 18 grand for it

Some guy on this board has 400k miles on his 6.4. I have 26k on my '18 6.4 and being 70 years old this should be the last vehicle I buy. Paid $2.04 per gallon today so fuel costs not too bad but I'm in Michigan. Glad I left SoCal

Going from a 4.7 to the 6.4 should be a real treat!
Enjoy

Actually the 2011 I traded in had the 5.7 so it’s a noticeable difference but not dramatic. The power wasn’t an issue just wanted a beefier truck for pulling my travel trailer.

I am sorry I was looking at your member profile & didn't notice that was a 2003 truck. Yeah with the extra weight of the 2500 you more than likely wouldn't notice much difference at all except for the ride. :) Actually the coils on the 2500 are not too bad. If you do like most on here, lower the air in the tires to around 40-50psi when not loaded, & the ride is just about as comfortable as a 1500.

I was just thinking about the air pressure on the way to work this morning. Do you run the recommended pressure in the front and just air the rear down? I would assume so because of the weight up front.
