Those Laramie numbers appear wrong. Sadly.

Do you know the actual payload for your truck?

1980 is what's in my head, but when I pick it up I'll confirm that number because I asked them to read it to me. As others stated it's the rear springs that are the limiting factor. The other 6.4 Hemi's typically have more payload than the Cummins because they weight less. Don't forget the PW sits 2 inchs higher than a 4WD 2500HD.

I chose to replace the 1500 because we are getting more into offroading again and wanting a expo rig. This gets me true lockers and factory lift and 17 inch rims on 33 inch A/T tires from the factory without the DIY mods. The PW has the credentials.

If all I thought about was payload and more power I'd of bought a 1 ton Cummins and called it a day.

The payloads vary between the different trims. Tradesman is about 1500 pounds. SLT is about 1400 pounds. Laramie is about 1300 pounds. The PW's with the 5.7 have slightly higher payloads because they are a little bit lighter.

I here you and can see where you are coming from. Makes complete sense vs your current truck and other offerings. And 1980 would be awesome making payload a virtual nonissue.

I hope that's the case. My fear is seeing these trucks with 1400 lb payloads.

Just realized I never did post a photo. We haven't towed yet but I think we're pulling out this Saturday and then I can take some nice photos.

Thumbs up

Thanks guys. We plan to have this truck for the long haul. I knew orginally we might not have the 1/2 ton for the long haul. But we tried it. It worked mostly. But I think we're going to be a lot happier now. Plus WINCH!

Very nice truck! You will definitely enjoy it! Nice to see that your payload is almost 1500 pounds. The bed with ram boxes must weigh less than the standard bed. Good choice going with the Laramie.

FYI..
Door tag off my '13 PWagon 5.7 Hemi. I think you'd call it the "Tradesman" version. Tows my 34' Limited without worry & goes everywhere I dare take it!
