Needed this for a project. Since they aren't open on Saturday to return it, I get to keep it for the weekend.

It's about 12k total behind me. This is pulling up a huge hill. I had to let off at the top because the semi pulled down to 40mph at the top.

Also got back my oil analysis from my 2nd oil change.

This oil had much warmer temps, and didn't lose viscosity as bad as the Mag1.

I'm thinking that I am going to remove the leveling kit. I don't want bigger tires and I hate the way the front end sticks up when I'm hooked up to something.

Airbags. I'm going to do the same to my truck.

You're unloaded most of the time, and a leveled truck looks bad ass.

Airbags... on a dually... bumper pulling?

thought the whole point of the dually was to be completely overkill.

And yeah, I keep thinking about doing a leveling kit on my truck but the truck sits nice and flat with my trailer loaded.

It didn't squat with the stock springs, but since I put in the lift, it squats.

Not bad for 20 seconds of what sounded like it was really trying to get up the hill. Speed didn't drop off at all until you let it, which is

I've thought about that. I just figured it'd be easier and cheaper to just unlevel it. Although, I am buying a gooseneck dump trailer. Maybe air bags would help it towing more. Anyone have airbags?

My neighbor just put them on his 2016 Ram 2500 6.4 gasser truck that he uses to pull his giant 5th wheel camper trailer after his leveling kit made his truck look like it was squatting while pulling.

He hasn't pull again yet since installing them, but we're all 100% confident that they'll address his concerns to his satisfaction.

I had a lot of throttle left too. I'm pretty sure that the turbo is sticking because vgt% stays at 15%, which it's not supposed to do. So as soon as I get a little time, I need to pull the turbo off and clean it or just replace it.

Totally was about to buy a 6.4 before the Cummins (then obviously did neither) then I read that towing they got worse gas mileage than the Raptor.

Immediately axed that idea.

I wish ram would release a torque curve for them. People say they are disappointing compared to the 5.7.

He actually loves it. Only uses it to move his camper trailer on a random occasion, otherwise, its just a commuter truck. He says its got plenty of power to tow, and while its thirsty... it does its job, and well.

yeah that sounds about right.

we have one in our work fleet, it's probabbly got 2k of stuff in it, but rarely tows...

i think it's at 11-12mpg which isn't terrible.


ive towed boats with one and it had plenty of power for whatever i was pulling. i like em, and i mean you were (might still be) able to get decently equipped ones brand new for 37-39k OTD iirc... crew cab, cloth, carpet, 2500's, in floor storage, 6.4, backup cam, etc.
