This lml has more than enough power. I can't see needing anymore but I guess if I ever upgrade to a 5th wheel I won't be saying that lol nice looking truck. It was either black or white for me and this one showed up used and in great condition so I had to jump on it.

I agree, plenty of power. The published 0-60 time is only 1 second slower than our RT AWD charger. And it's huge.....

They changed interiors in 2015 in the HDs. I wish I had the new door pockets and maybe center console. So yeah, virtually perfect for us. Tiny tiny complaint(s).

Mine isn't a DD. If fuel was free, it would be. It's my favorite vehicle to drive.

How do you like the new F350 Dually?

I thought about an F450? But my truck is a 2016 F350 PSD Crew SB KR so would be wasting $

I'm loving it so far. I went from a 2014 F250 and even though this is a dually it rides better than my old one. The redesign is pretty awesome. If you are really looking I would consider the new F350s. There use to be a lot more difference in the capabilities but now they are rated very closely with the 350 actually have more cargo capacity.

Yeah only benefit from the F450 is bigger wheels and tires but tires tend to get more expensive to replace. I found an F350 Lariat Dually at the dealer I bought mine from and it is priced less then my King Ranch was?

The 350 and 450 are about equal in capacity only bummer for me is I drive mine everyday and a Dually is a bit bigger also I don't tow about 13,500 so maybe wasting $ but thinking about it

Picked up a new tow rig!!!

Well, I finally had enough of my old truck and decided to upgrade to a new (to me) 2015 Ram 2500. I have to say that this thing tows like a dream. I was pushing the limit with my Ram 1500 with the Hemi. Picked it up last Tuesday and headed to the Rim in AZ on Wednesday for the wife elk hunt. I am looking forward to towing all over with the family now.

We have an 07 Jeep with the same 3.0L Mercedes Engine with a hot tune from a reputable tuner. We towed a 26 foot camper with it for years and it towed it great even in high winds. I purchased an F150 and although it although it had a longer wheel base then the Jeep, it didn't tow it as well. I felt the trailer more being back there more with the F150 then the jeep.

With 110k miles on the Jeep, it is now mainly used to tow our ATVs as we have a 1 ton truck for our 5th wheel.

Love the color. Had a red Chevy 1500 years ago and loved it. I had more people pull out in front of me with that truck though. Talking to my insurance agent one day and he said they have more claims on red vehicles than any other color. I guess a lot of people are color blind. Miss that truck.

Got my hitch mounted and wired on the Wildcat and took it for a quick spin with my ATV behind it. You don't even know it's back there....
