After years of wanting one I finally drove my dream truck home yesterday! I bought a White 2010 2500 Crew Cab. Its not the super fancy model but it has AC, Cruise, and power windows and honestly, that's enough to keep us happy.
We tow a 26' camper and we were driving an 06 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi, its did a pretty good job, but I always feel better knowing that I'm towing way under my rated limits than knowing I'm towing right at them. The hemi seemed a bit strained going up hills.
Ive read a lot about the egr/dpf deletes and it seems like it might be better for the longevity of the engine, I'll be doing more research and maybe pull the trigger on those projects in the coming spring. I'm lucky to be very mechanically inclined and prefer doing all the work that I practically can myself so having forums such as this one will be extremely valuable.
Heres a coupla pictures
Were towing a 26rks puma and probaby camp 20-30 days a year.
I havent hitched it to the rig yet but it feels like you could tow quite a lot with it.
