I have 2009 f250 with 6.8 v10 not great on gas but plenty of power pull 11,000 pound 5th wheel with no problem. Just don't trust new ford diesels yet if I bought diesel would be Chevy or dodge.

I have a 2012 F250 6.2L gas. Awesome truck. I didn't want to commit to the price of a diesel since I only pull once a month, normally local. My last truck was a 2002 F250 7.3L diesel. Another awsome truck that gave very little problems over the 10 years I owned it.

I had a 2000 f250 with a 7.3.Great engine and beside regular maintenance all I replaced on it was a sensor.

Just bought this 09 Ram with the Hemi engine pulled my 6500# dry weight travel trailer up into the Catskills without to much complaining. The difference from my previous 1/2 ton Hemi powered Ram was evident right away.

Glenns Ram is no ordinary Ram it's a POWER WAGON! The ultimate factory offroad truck.

Some of the Factory goodies are:
Warn Winch
2inch lift
4.56 gears
electronic locking differentials in the front and rear for TRUE 4 Wheel Drive
Electronic disconnecting front swaybar for improved articulation

Simply put it's a badass truck for the areas he is pulling his camper thru

Agreed. I try to avoid deep water, but sometimes it becomes necessary. That was certainly deeper than I was comfortable with. It was very close (or at) the location for the air intake and certainly running the risk of hydro-locking. Fluids were checked after that and all water crossings.

Thank you sir. Very few understand or appreciate a Power Wagon and its capabilities. It is in its own category outside of the basic gas/diesel debate. It certainly is not the tow monster the diesels are, but still has respectable capabilities coupled with incredible off road abilities. It certainly allows us to get into (and out of) areas with our fifth wheel that we might not other wise try. We then use that as a base camp and explore some beautiful country.
