Everything about this truck is awesome.. from the lockers to the winch to the disconnecting sway bar. The only drawback is the clattering/ticking/lifter noise that makes these Hemi's sound like an old beater with a bad valve. I wouldn't recommend a Ram with a Hemi to anyone. Read up on the annoying as hell Hemi tick and engine clatter. It's embarrassing to drive a $52K truck that sounds like a sick diesel. Buyer beware!! Dealer says it's normal even though it started this at 2k miles!!
2500 SLT Crew SB 4x4 6.7L Cummins Diesel with Big Horn option. Wow, what a great truck. Can pull a herd of elephants. 10K off list with rebates. Upgraded from a RAM 1500 so I could pull a 33 ft 5th wheel. Ride is stiffer and more truck-like than the 1500. Climbs the hills without breaking a sweat, and the jake brake sure is nice to ease you down the hill. Bucket seats are very comfy for the long trips. Beautiful looking truck. Beats the competition in function, style, and value. An easy choice after you do the homework.
No DEF required, jake brakes come standard, ample interior storage. Nice looks.
Does not come with step up rails. Could also use a step for the bed.
Did a ton of research before buying the Dodge 2500 TRX Diesel, compared it to Chevy, Ford, GMC and test drove them all. We're pulling a 9,000 lb travel trailer and it's effortless with this truck. The ride is "stiffer" in the off road version but not horrible. We bought this truck for camping, towing, and off road use. It excels in these categories. If you need more creature comforts, or a softer ride, go with the SLT Laramie. I'm averaging about 16 MPG city, 20 MPG highway with the diesel engine. this diesel is a lot quieter than the competitors and requires no DEF. Overall, I'm very happy with this truck.
Integrated brake controller, A/C outlet in dash, integrated iPod controller.
The GPS navigation system needs work. Functionally, it does what its supposed to but navigating the menus for the GPS and the radio is not very intuitive. Almost sorry I got the navigation because it's so difficult to use. Also, don't like the placement of the cruise control.
