Ram tough??

Does anyone out there use a Ram 2500 with the 6.4 Hemi? Interrested in how well it does mountians. I've seen the Ike Gauntlet but thats the extream. Wondering how well it works in reality. Want to pull our FC 27FB with motorcycle in truck bed.

Actually, it's not the extreme as it conforms to the 6% interstate standard. It is a significant distance of that grade, which means it should not be discounted. Just note there are other more significant pulls.

Good luck with your towing. Pat

If I wanted to carry the motorcycle I would get a 3500.

Iím sure it does fine, but personally I really really like having engine braking on my Cummins while in the mountains.

Please let us know your impressions of your new truck pulling over Donner Pass. I'm curious and have this truck as #1 on my radar.
