We are on another cross-country trip with our FC25 and Ram EcoDiesel right now, hard to imagine a nicer overall towing combination, rock solid on the road in all weather, road and traffic conditions and remarkable economy, a nice handling and comfortable daily driver as well. This is our second Ram 1500, last one a Hemi. That was a good truck as well for this purpose.

RAM is a better choice because you will get a better payload. Towing a AS25 or any larger AS will drive you at the limit of the payload capacity of a Jeep if you load it with more than two people.

Milo you will be gold with that setup but set up right the diesel jeep should be also as others have done this with good results. I would want the LS differential with a 2WD. fwiw many grades out west require tire chains on 2WD when the flashers are on due to road conditions at the higher altitudes.

My 3.92 gear Big Horn QC 6.4 bed 4WD is rated to tow 8,800. Its GVWR is 6,950 as delivered weighed 5,501 so say 1,450 payload. But I've been on state scales near the 7,800 combined axle weight and the truck would climb decend handle & stop well. In fact safely useing tune with brake, no sway WDH, & axle to frame airbags well & better tires. For safety I do watch to not exceed individual axle & CVWR.

It sure is an efficient engine. Three years running now a Wards top ten engine award winner. Have over 233k on mine now well over half of which with a trailer in tow. Repairs a light switch at $104 & a lift pump at $158. Happy streamin
