Ok. Here is our 2017 Ram Power Wagon 2500 short box with the Ram box set up. I still have 4 feet in bed so I can still haul full sheets of plywood and I also have a 5th wheel in the bed. The trailer comes with a ReeseRevolution pin box and I would recommend this to anyone who is contemplating getting a short box. Dodge does not offer the 5th wheel kit with the Ram Box but maybe with the information here they will change their mids and offer that kit. I can do a full circl at a 90 degree turning radius with this setup and no fear of hitting my cab corners. The ride is level with about 6in between the box sides and the camper. any questions or comments, please ask away. Have a great camping season.

Mfg's have gone to jacking those 2500/250's up to please the parking lot crowd. I'm looking at trucks now and I've measured both Ram's and Ford's and they're both 59" from ground to top of tail gate. My current truck is 53". I don't relish raising the RV enough to get it level, but if I want a new truck, looks like I'm going to have to. Either that or start looking at flat beds.

Doug, Terie asked me to assist you here. The way I fixed your Flikr pics above was to go to your album there and click on each photo, then hit the share option. I then selected the BB code option, then copied and pasted it direct into your post. No img tags, just the raw code flikr generated.

As far as adding an avatar under your name, this post by Doug may help:
