Ram Eco diesel

Bought the truck in July of 14, just for the motor. I get 30hwy not towing and 25 around town in the mountains in N.C. Ended up buying a 30 ft fac from Colonial Airstream with recliners. Picked it up Saturday the 4th. Route back, N.J.70, I295, I95, I495, I66, I81, I26, I40, Ashville N.C. Area which is home for now. Truck empty weight, steer 3320, drive 2360, total 5680. With trailer, steer 3400, drive 3360, trailer 6440. Total 13200. Water tank was full and about 150lbs of stuff in the trailer. Fuel mileage 13.7 and will top it off tomorrow for the final tank. Truck did fine kept it on cruise, 58-60 mph. Equalizer hitch with 1000lb bars. Lots of head wind.

Nice, congratulations.

We're looking as well. What axle ratio, 3.55 or 3.92?

If you could provide any other info about your RAM it would be appreciated. Like model, crew or not, air suspension, Ramboxes, and rear axle, etc. Since I have a RAM I like to see what others are choosing.

Enjoy your new AS and welcome to the forum! Congrats!

The truck is a tradesman quad cab, 4x4, with 3.92 rears. Just the basic pickup.
