I've got 3 kids in the back seat that are going to be getting hungry at 6:00 or so and I don't want to try to find a place to eat on the road and then have to setup in the dark. With that being said, sometimes I NEED to get on down the road!!! I NEVER exceed 65mph or travel at unsafe speeds for any reason when towing, fyi.
Pack some sandwiches.

I've got 3 kids under the age of 6. Youngest is 11 mos and has to have a bottle. Packing sandwiches doesn't cut it for us at the moment.

Unless something has changed you can't get anything but 3.42:1 in a 2500 Cummins. The only way to get 4.10:1 is with the Hemi.

Unless I am drunk it is an option for 4:10 gears....I have been dreaming of a FREE truck, but I haven't found one yet.

Why would you be surprised? I know what I drive. I'm surprised you knew how to spell it being you think you can get a 4.11.1 in a Ram and that a 2500 with a Cummins is a V6

I think you need to quit drinking and show me a link that proves a 2014 Ram 2500 can be ordered with 4.10:1 and a Cummins.
