Yup, Just under $61k [emoticon] Lariat FX4 and maybe more! Has so much on it I may need a degree to figure it all out but MAN what a TRUCK!

Looks like mileage is down a couple MPG's but I didn't buy it for that [emoticon] I already know it will haul the 990

Just hauled home a new to us camper from Portland, OR to Nor Cal on our new to us (last year) β€˜11 Ram 3500 DRW. Our old beloved truck was an β€˜01 Ram 2500 SRW. What a remarkable difference in ride and handling our new old truck provides! Granted there are many differences in interior & motor (6.7 vs 5.9) but wow. All I added was air bags on the 3500. Smooth ride and great tracking around corners. DW is a much more comfortable copilot after this trip. I guess it was a long five years for her on the road in our previous rig.

Thanks all,

Should be getting the new tie downs this week and am trying to locate some Rieco-Titan Swing A-Way brackets locally so I can test the truck out this weekend (it's either that or wait till they arrive from amazon which might be the following week [emoticon]

Also have to decide what to do with my Supertruss. The new hitch is a 2 1/2" hitch and I see I can get 24" extensions for it that neck down to 2" and am wondering if I should just go that route? Otherwise I'd have to get a SuperHitch now too (what's that these days? $650?)

Probably not much call for selling a 2 1/2 inch hitch....too bad I hadn't tried to get that in the loan on the new truck....ahhh well.

If you got a Lariat diesel for $61k you stole it. Congratulations.

Torklift now sells the Cannon for the 3" Ford receiver, but nothing for the 2.5" receivers on the market. It depends mostly on the tongue weight of what you wnt to tow whether you spend money on Torklift products. A 24" length, 2.5" diameter single extension should be good for about 500 lbs tongue weight.

Thanks again -- yes $61k....I couldn't pass it up!

I was hoping to tow a Mustang on a car trailer so the overall weight would be about 5000lbs and tongue weight about 500. Seems the 24" 2.5" to 2" extension on Amazon lists a 600lbs tongue weight.

Nice rig! Congrats!
Are you sure it’s not a 3” hitch receiver?
