I have the 2014 version of that truck and really love it. This weekend I bought a 4,000 pound bandsaw and because of the size of it I had to load it onto the very front of my equipment trailer to clear the fenders and ended up with about 2000 pounds on the trailer tongue. Between the trailer weight and the 1000 pounds of other stuff in the back of the truck it was over on paper but only sagged about 2 inches in the rear (actually looked good and pretty level) and drove fine. The new coil rear suspension on the Rams is very nice.

Granted the payload is less the yellow sticker is 21XX on the new Dodge and I'm comfortable with that given the tongue weight of the trailer was close to 800lb when I had it at the scales with the old TV...The thing was yeah I could put more payload in the old TV not that I ever maxed out it I was well within the limits the problem it was straining to go up some of the steeper inclines in the Western USA pulling my old #6000lb TT with the 6.0 gasser. I couldn't imagine having a max payload of the 3096 and pulling the old TT over some of those passes and now the new TT is almost another 2000lbs heavier.

The other thing was registration on the new truck here in CA was $643 for this year it goes by weight so a 3500 is even more $$$ to register I think its another $100 or more per year whether it's gas or diesel just another expense I didn't want to have to pay. The plan is to keep the new TV and TT 10 years then re-evaluate LOL we will see how that goes

Congrats on the New Ram, you are going to love the Cummins. I have a 2012 3500 Limited with the Cummins and it's bar far the best tow vehicle on the market, you can't beat the Cummins Diesel, more stock torque than anything on the market. Hook up and go camping and enjoy
