New rig.

With all the ram programs on right now, I went to have a look.

First saw a 15 longhorn Laramie drw.
Every option. Was quite nice.
Sticker was 91. Offered to me at 74k. Cdn

I wasn't a huge fan of the whole longhorn part, but there wasn't many other trucks to choose from around here.

Wife settled it... She absolutely hated the interior. Her foot came down. No way.

Found a srw slt at a dealer, 3 hours away. I knew the salesman there, told him I was trading in my truck and her Lexus.
He gave me an offer, without even seeing them.
Free diesel on the ram, plus another 4K off.

Sign me up. Drove both down the next day, he stuck to his offers, and we came home with this.

15 CCSB slt CUMMINS aisin.
Nav heated seats, just enough.
I'm happy with it.
When the warranty is up, they will get it back, and I'll take another.

It feels stronger than my 14 2500.

There's some great deals to be had right now - glad you found one you're happy with!

Cummins is a beast - too bad about the RAM it's in, though.... :P

Nice Truck

Congratulations....Nice Truck. I picked up a 2015 2500 Ram with the Cummins for what I thought was a good price tad over 20% off the sticker it replaced a Chevy 2500 Gasser that I had stolen over the Summer...In looking in the owners manual it really doesn't say at what mileage you can start towing....How long are you going to wait before you do ? I have 600 Miles on mine now and believe I should be good to go.

My fifth is put away for the winter, but I would be waiting around 1500 miles till towing.
Some may think that's high, but it's up to you!

Ford recommends a minimum of 500 miles before towing; and I'm with Kenny, that more is probably better.

I'm sure Cummins / Ram has a similar recommendation...

One of the nice things about Southern CA is you don't have to put your trailer away for the season....I don't have any trips planned so I will let the mileage roll up before the first tow.

After 500 miles you can start towing with a RAM Cummins. The engine needs it to finish the break in.

Ejs4029 you can start towing right away. In your manual they tell you that you should to break it in the correct way. I have a new 3500 and got it home and hooked it up to trl and pulled it 135 miles.

There's two ways of thought on break in.

No load....
Full load...
