Sorry guess the salesman fed me the wrong information I was talking to but I'm not surprised cause salesman seldom know much about what they are selling.
Trying this Ram 3500 out and see how it goes this time around.

Is it possible that it was the Dodge salesman that "informed" you? A little O/T, but does anyone else HATE when a salesman says something smart-alecky about another brand? Was looking at a Dodge several weeks back and told the salesman I'd had a 6.7PSD in the past and was now driving an EB. He responded with "I'm sorry." Bought an F250 with a 6.7PSD a few weeks later.

We looked at the Ram 3500, even considered it. The local dealer wouldn't discuss price other than sticker. We get the Ford family discount so it was kinda a no brainier. I won't admit it to certain forum members, but the Ram it a good truck.

Come out to Oregon. All Ram 2500-3500's are deeply discounted. $9-10,000 off MSRP. Don't even have to go to the dealer. Prices are posted on their web sites.
Ford will advertise $10,000 discounts several times a year around hear. Only issue with Ford in the town I live in is there's only one dealer. Same with the other brands. Always have to go out of town to get a decent deal.

This is a funny thread. ANY intelligent person knows that you can get ANY truck stuck, that you can get almost any OTHER truck to pull it out (regardless of brand). That you can pull almost ANY trailer with even a Hyundai Elantra if it's on flat ground with no resistance. I bet you I could probably get a locamotive moving with a Toyota Tacoma if the conditions were perfect.

Bascially what I'm saying is that it is almost comical to assume in real world use that 1 truck is vastly better than another. Unless you are comparing a new truck to an old one.

I bought my F450 because I like a few really great features that both GM and RAM didn't offer. I like my towing mirrors and manstep. I also like that i didn't have to go through 44 RAM configurations to get one with a magical 30k towing capacity. GM doesn't even offer a truck that can tow 25k...so that ruled them out. From an RV perspective, any of them could tow my trailer, but from my Texas Ranch, only Ford or RAM had the Legal numbers to tow the hay bales and tractor/trailer combo.

You go into a RAM dealership and you'll find a sales person telling you ALL their 2500/3500 trucks can tow 32410lbs. Bunch of liers. When you get an 2015/16 F450 Pickup you get the 32,400lb capacity, Crew Cab, Long Bed, Dually, 4wd in all trim levels. You also get a Dana S130D Axle! In order to get the max tow (32410) with a RAM, you need to have the 2wd, Long Bed, Regular Cab, with Aisin Tranmission, and a few other options. NOT the setup that most would purchase unless it were strickly a farm truck.

All that being said...... I'm a Ford guy for now.

Afterall, who does EarthRoamer use for their chassis

Unfortunately the area we live in is the automotive capital with the corporate headquarters of the big three. With all the auto workers it's pretty much employee discounts or nothing. Occasionally there will be extra sale promotions but rarely on large trucks.
