RE: Is ram air suspension needed?

if your trying to avoid dual wheels you might want to avoid a 41' trailer....but that just my opinion.

RE: DRW or SRW

On buying new, order your truck and get it exactly the way you want. The 8 week wait is nothing compared to the length of ownership and seat time you'll spend in it. I was right place at the right time, truck I purchased had everything and more than I ever imagined I would want or need. Do you really need the mega cab? the ram I drove with the crew cab I thought had plenty of passenger space.

RE: DRW or SRW

the ram I looked at had a sticker of just over $73k, before I even got there they took $10k off it. Same with the truck I bought, sticker was just over $74k, yes as much as m first house, but I walked out with it for $62k. GMC didn't really want to play as they took $5k off and told me that was it. Just shop around, in the northeast it was hard to find a crew cab dually that wasn't a work truck. so my choices were limited unless I ordered one. I did look at used but I was only saving about $10k and didn't like what I was finding.

RE: DRW or SRW

Bedlam...Nice Ram and the wheels do look good and im certain they serve the purpose for your application. For me the 17" that came on my 350drw work fine for now as I am not even close to using half my gvwr. Taken, I suspect ford eliminated the heavy tow on the F350drw because it might have been cutting into the F450 territory. It will be interesting see the 2017 models. OP...for me I feel the move from a SRW to DRW with a 5th wheel is worth it!

RE: Thoughts?

that side by side is at least 1000lbs

RE: DRW or SRW

if you want the 19.5" that badly many guys add them after to their dually's, the bigger wheels do give the truck that big rig look. It just wasn't what I was after.

RE: DRW or SRW

Ah, yes I felt lucky to find a 2016 drw with the 4:30 gears and wide track. tire size, you'll laugh but that's why I chose the 350 I wanted to be able to buy regular 17" tires and not the g rated 19.5", but yes they do look better. no doubt the 130 should have a higher rating than the 110 dana and I assumed it was a ford game, but with my truck being rated to tow 26k lbs I have a long way to go before my 15k lb trailer will exceed it.

RE: DRW or SRW

taken, im not sure what drw your friend bought but I can tell you my 2016 drw rides worse unloaded than the srw did. Also you mention getting a f450 in your future, why you skipping the 350drw? I bought a f350 drw with the heavy tow capacity which gave me the same wide track front axle as the 450, the gvwr of both are the same 14k lbs, but the 450 s a little heavier giving it less payload. Maybe these numbers will change for 2017 as mine is a 2016.

RE: Tow vehicle question?

NOT enough truck!!! Even a 350 will need air bags. A 3500 SRW RAM with factory air ride and Aisin trans will be the best bet for that RV. or you could just buy any brand that has the proper rating to tow that trailer.

RE: DRW or SRW

OP I sent you a PM...I went from a srw to drw very recently.

RE: Thoughts?

Its a dodge your good, don't worry about the weight just get smaller tires so they don't rub on the upper fender wells.

RE: FYI....screamin deal on set of 19.5s in Seattle

not worth it for me then, im averaging about 20k miles a year now, 7 months of the year I ride a motorcycle to work.

RE: FYI....screamin deal on set of 19.5s in Seattle

yes, that would be my other concern, those look like racing slicks that wouldn't fair well in the winter snow.

RE: FYI....screamin deal on set of 19.5s in Seattle

without starting trouble can I ask a serious question. What real advantage would I gain putting something like that on my 2016 f350 dually? it has same GVWR as the f450 so I assume the puny 17" wheels are capable enough for my useage. But aside from the look and if I was carrying a serious load is there any advantage such as do they last much longer?

RE: Ford 6.7L Powerstroke V8 Diesel

wow you guys really think everything on the road is junk nowadays? when I started driving all I could afford were cars from the early 70's...I don't recall much good about those aside from being easy to fix, which was done daily!

RE: Ford 6.7L Powerstroke V8 Diesel

im on my 3rd ford, first was a 6.4, cranked 100k miles never had an issue, last one was a 2011 6.7 one little issue fixed under warranty. I hope my luck hasn't run out with the new one, 2016 6.7...the way some of you guys talk It might not start this weekend...or could implode! As for who has the best selling trucks, I don't care, when I bought mine I tried all 3 and bought the one that fit me and was the best deal for me. I came close to buying a 2016 ram, not because I think the cummins is better, but it was a good price and I liked the looks/features.

RE: Ford 6.7L Powerstroke V8 Diesel

How many miles do you suggest he waits before saying he has a Great truck? As I posted earlier my buddys 2015 already has 197K and has no problems other than regular upkeep.:h is that possible in 2 years? Does he ever get out of the truck?He bought it in Feb. 2015. hauls new campers all over the place to the dealers. just left out again this morning going to Elkhart to pick up and then back to Utah. My Butt hurts just thinking about all the sitting I would need to do for those miles!

RE: Ford 6.7L Powerstroke V8 Diesel

OP...I owned a 2011 6.7 turned over 110k miles, in that time I did have one issue which was a oil leak at a line that was replaced under warranty. Aside form that oil/filter every 5k miles and fuel filters 10k miles, truck never missed a beat. I would still have it but being it was a 3/4 ton I needed more cargo capacity so I bought a 1ton DRW ford. I did shop all 3 brands and will say the gmc denali was nice inside, I bought a platinum edition ford so it does have nicer leather and such...I would have bought the gmc but the deal wasn't there. Buy the ford, gm or whatever brand its your choice, I don't think any of them are bad like in the 80's!
