Easy way to increase your payload

Here is a cheap payload upgrade for you 2013 – 2018 RAM 2500 4th generation RAM with the Cummins engine….Should give you aleast 800lbs more payload when you done

1. Order new 3500 Emblems
2. Remove Old 2500 Emblems
3. Install new 3500 Emblems

Lastly try and sell your old 2500 emblems on CL or Ebay to someone with a RAM 1500 that can use a bump in payload

A look at the rear suspension or a VIN check should reveal the fraud.
But that is a good enough deception for untrained eye.
How about a Power Wagon or off road decal on my truck?

Of course its only for the visual aspect It Reminds me of of all the Mercedes 450 SL's I used to see out in Southern CA years ago alot of them truly weren't 450's just re-badged 350 SL's

Actually, the easiest way to increase your payload is to buy a Ford������.

Try, “Fine Old Rebuilt Dodge”, or some other first word substitution.

This post is too late, I already bought a RAM 3500 with the Cummins HO 6.7 and doubled my payload and towing!

Ford and Ram need the sticker swap...(but back to reality you'll need a real 3500 from either of those guys to match the payload in a 2500 Chevy).

You can buy a 2500 series truck with a GVWR over 11,500lbs from Chevy.

Ain't that the truth! Last week, on another forum, a guy actually asked what aftermarket items are available to turn his '89 GMC C3500 dually into a 4500!

Notwithstanding the fact that a 4500 didn't exist in 1989, it was a painful conversation to say the least.
