RE: Cargo Trailers Yes?/No? Off High Clearance? One axle?/Two?

I don't understand why people get a TC then haul a trailer behind it.... I do because you can choose your garage size and change it or leave it at home. Also for us two quads and a RZR won't fit into to many toy haulers. In Oregon the toys get DIRTY & MUDDY and don't want the dirt inside the open style toy haulers. My next enclosed trailer will be a 24 or 28 foot box, 1 foot extra height. You know I was only joking, right? :B yes I sensed the sarcasm!

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

Nice truck! Two weeks ago I got my own 2016 3500, but a SRW, 6.4L Hemi, short bed. Like yours, the first ordered and off the lot from the dealer. I'm working with Torklift on the "fit" as someone mentioned earlier. Should receive the packages today. They suspect the same units will fit as the '15 truck, and I'm putting the Talons and SuperHitch on. I should know on the fit soon... I've exchanged emails with Torklift, basically they are expecting to test fit from a local dealer within a month. I'm in Oregon and Torklift would be a little ways to go and work is busy for me until mid October. I went to a really great old school local hitch place that has all the Torklift stuff in stock and we looked under the truck and he believes its the same as 2014 and 2015, he's willing to try it third week of September. Just a scheduling thing now. I have a lot of days I'm traveling to clients and need my daily driver truck.

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

Why didn't Ya go with the Laramie Longhorn Pkg?? I'm on my 2nd one now, 2015 3500 CC DRW, the 1st was a 2011 1500 that is going to a new home this weekend. Don't get much better than that!! Makes my BIL's Ranch King look like poverty row!! Dave S I just don't care for the browns/tan of the longhorn pkg. My last 4 trucks have been black on black. Laramie gets me all the leather, butt warmers, butt coolers, and power everything i could want.

RE: Cargo Trailers Yes?/No? Off High Clearance? One axle?/Two?

Yah, I'm eventually planning on an enclosed trailer too, apx 7x18/20 or so to carry 2 buggys, ACE & XP1k, and water and misc stuff as a supply trailer, but going to start off simple with a small one for the ACE buggy, 6x10/12 open.. I did learn something on my last trailer, 6x10, that carried and RZR XP1k in that they had a 2200# axle... destroyed the tires, couldn't handle the apx 1500# of loaded RZR and cambered. From now on, nothing less than a 3500# and brakes if I can afford it. For the ACE, probably not, but 3000# min for that one. Dual 3500# for the final enclosed one. Mfg load limits are a joke, I just figure 1/2 of what they say.. Lessons learned. good thread, thanks.. I would recommend going with 5400 # rated axles and going full width which is 102''

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

did you order or consider the factory auto leveling air bag suspension? I have yet to hear of anyone with this and a heavy TC. Nope cause I'd rather have steel springs holding up the TC. Didn't even look at the pricing of it. And earlier it looked like the airbags were inward so that would make the sway worse.

RE: Cargo Trailers Yes?/No? Off High Clearance? One axle?/Two?

And if you end up going with a trailer, I love having an Enclosed trailer. Everything is hidden and locked up. Rain, dirt, snow, can't touch it. Just need to make sure it is long enough for your kayaks or canoes or other toys.

RE: Cargo Trailers Yes?/No? Off High Clearance? One axle?/Two?

Front receiver hitch and a hitch hauler basket works great for things like firewood, grills, Honda 2000, etc.... We have a bike rack we put on the back extended receiver hitch for all the bikes. Agree, we don't put anything on top of the camper, if we got Kayaks (want some) I'd put them up top though before I drug a trailer around. And if you have an extended cab or crewcab a lot can go in back seat if you don't have kids or furry kids.

RE: Cargo Trailers Yes?/No? Off High Clearance? One axle?/Two?

We drag a 20' enclosed trailer when we take our quads and RZR for riding. But if we going ''just camping'' we put the bikes on a bike rack and go without any trailer. Yes the trailer is nice, but it is nicer not having one when you want to park in a 30 foot camp spot. I'd personally start with no support trailer and see how things go. Bikes on a bike rack, kayaks on top of the camper, BBQ on a front rack, storage area or truck back seat. What is your truck and camper setup?

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

The HD update is not slated until the 2018 model year. 2017 will be the 1500. I had a 2005 I had a 2011 I have now a 2016 Went from the 2005 to the 2011 for the real CrewCab. Went from 2011 to the 2016 for more power, 14K GVW and the little refinements. In 2021 or so I'm sure i'll get the urge for new leather smell and have some reason to do it. Buy exactly what I want brand new, take it up to about 100K miles and than boom, new one :)

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

There is no changes to the 2016 frames. The 14 - 15 Torklift products will fit just fine. They used my 2014 to build the frame mounts. They had my truck for about a week fitting everything to it and fabbing every thing. Congrats on the new truck. Does yours have the 900 lbs of torque? Looking at the instruction PDFs right now... Yes the 900 Ibs! Feels a lot stronger and quicker than my 2011 that had ''only'' 650. Can't wait to tow my enclosed trailer on Friday and see the performance change.

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

my 2016 was ordered as soon as ordering was allowed. Was also the first 2016 received and sold by my dealer.

RE: Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

Received this email back from Torqlift, might have to wait a little while for tie downs...... Good Morning Elliot, Thank you for your inquiry and support. I appreciate you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you. Currently, we have not yet had the opportunity to test on this specific truck. We rely on our local dealer partners to allow us to test and design on the new trucks when they are released and unfortunately this truck has not yet been made available in our area to test on. Dodge, usually, from previous years, releases their truck later in the year. I would check back in about a month and we should have a better idea of when we will see their new trucks hitting our local lots. I hope this has been helpful and please let me know if I can further assist and we look forward to hearing back from you. Have a wonderful day.

Ram 3500 2011 to a 2016 Ram 3500

New truck has a lot more power than my 2011. Also seems a lot beefier in the frame, transmission, axles etc... 14K GVW. Both my 2011 and 2016 are Laramie Black on black 4*4 with 4.10 gears, but lots of little new cool stuff, Navigation and instrument panels are a lot better.

RE: You had close call, scary moment, or accident, towing?

Really it's just getting the biggest baddest truck you can and then keeping the trailer under the truck's limits. And setup setup setup of the WD and sway bars along with the trailer brakes. Once driving be very defensive. Leave lots of room and don't be in a rush. Todays trucks have amazing capabilities but physics still matter.

RE: License Plate issues

Interesting. Truck campers are plated in Oregon with ''K'' for Kamper, plates so never an issue for us. But we've also run with bike racks or a trailer all the time and never been an issue for us.
