30,000lb towing - wow

Just saw a commercial while watching the patriots vs. raven game. It was a RAM pick up truck commercial and it said 30,000 lb towing! OMG. The pickups are really getting powerful.

I guess people will not have to worry about which RV to buy. lol.

Vin.

They mentioned a 7,000+ payload number. But not sure if it was the same truck.

Thanks for the link Idaho.

If you click on the Hemi engine it says a 7,360 lb payload. WOW!

So you can see some trickery in the ad.

My guess with out looking it up I will say the 600 pounds is about the difference between a gas burner and the oil burner.
