    Joe - after all the crap I've given folks, hard to believe I own black wheels now

    john - 9.600#'s. My car is 3200 #, plus a 6-700# open trailer so I'm not going to be pushing it.

    Yeah but I think it looks really good. That truck pulling your car is going to look pretty awesome.

    I'm sure it's got a Hemi in it. Right?
    Nice truck! I think Dodge has the nicest looking trucks on the market now, just not sure of the reliability.

    that is pretty high...9600# for a std cab short wheelbase truck...nice.

    I like that they partially de-badged them from the factory.

    I used my 13 a few times for towing and was disappointed. I have the same setup as you. Ended up getting a diesel

    yes, Hemi. We will see, good warrant from them to start 3/36,000 plus 5/100,000 power train and I added the Chrysler extended for 72/60,000 bumper to bumper. I tend to keep trucks a long time, lol.

    i will never approach the "rating". My last one pulled my set up very nice and it was just a 4.7. This one has tow package, factory brake controller, with the 8 speed and 3.92 gears it should be a little better. For what I really tow, it's a good fit as well as something I can live with daily.

    the debadge is part of the black Ram package, deletes the Hemi badges on the side, black Ram and 4x4 on gate. The sales pitch is they made anything black that they could, lol.

    funny, I leave 1/6 until 2/14 again, home a few weeks then back. The good news is I should be finished over there by the end of March and will be able to hit most of the big raced from MIR forward. Basically bought a new truck so I could go a little further for some races this year. Wasn't real comfortable to tow to places like Chicago with the old truck. Now with a warranty, what the hell :)
