I am buying a 2014 RAM 2500. I am not sure what engine (5.7L or 6.4L) or axle gear ratio (3.73 or 4.10) to get. Any advice would be greatly appreciated especially if it is coming from a RAM 2500 owner.
I will be towing a 1978 - 31' Sovereign
, rear bedroom (dry 5,500 lbs, gross 7,500 lbs) and will have 1,000 to 1,500 lbs of payload in the back of the truck.
I know I can get away with a 1500
, but I will be doing a 6 months tour criss-crossing the US before moving the entire family to Nicaragua. For this reason I didn't want to be at the high end of the 1500's capacity.
Thanks, Michael Wild
