I F*#$&@^ Love this truck!

First tow, 1000 miles round trip with 8200 lbs hanging off the back and a bed full of tires and race fuel.....it's never been this easy....WOW! Set the cruise at 70mph in tow/haul and let her rip. I was shocked that only the steepest of grades got a down shift and it never wavered from 70mph. My old truck would never maintain speed in the mountains. I got 12mpg with the trailer on which is less than I had hoped but not horrible. Hopefully a little exhaust and egr work will pick that up. The DRW made towing a breeze even in the middle of the east coast Nor' Easter last week. I am now 100% spoiled.

Pulled this trailer with a 1500 pickup before. My v10 Excursion pulled pretty good when I had it but they are getting hard to find.

LOL!! I had convinced my buddy into buying a diesel (cummins) to pull his 32' TT. He was using a '97 Chevy 1500 till the motor blew. He said it way night/day difference!

BTW, the Dodge was his choice.... Not mine! He He!!

Yeah I am just shocked at the pulling power. The whole package really. I pulled a 20' enclosed sail down the highway in high winds and with the DRW didn't even feel it.

Kinda sucks in park-n-lots, too many a-holes don't care if their door hits the rear flares. That's why I take up 4 parking spots!!

Buying tires can get expensive!!
