    Any Drawbacks to 33 Gallon Tank?

    Yep, the American Society of Automotive Engineers standard for towing does NOT calculate anything after market into the determination of towing numbers. And gas is 6 lbs per gallon and the metal (I assume) in an "aux" tank.

    Any Drawbacks to 33 Gallon Tank?

    Yeah, I'd be looking for on the lot trucks on like cargurus and this was a surprisingly consistent issue. Towing tech packages, mirrors...the works...and 3.21 rear end and 23 or 26 gallon tanks. WTF??? I actually found a dealer who ordered trucks to tow but he was too far away... So, Peterson...

    Any Drawbacks to 33 Gallon Tank?

    Yeah, but you drive downhill with a tailwind both ways... My 2015 was right at 13 for mixed daily driving maybe a bit more with summer gas. That was with the 3.92, Half my drive home/town is about six miles on an 80 mph highway (Montana) and the rest stop and go in town. So, I do 25 miles maybe...

    Any Drawbacks to 33 Gallon Tank?

    I think that on many lots whomever orders trucks does NOT tow and you end up with the 3.21's and small gas tanks with the tow package on them. They probably think that if you order the tow package it has everything you need, not realizing that the 3.21 rear end sucks for towing and the 8 miles...

    Help deciding options

    ETorque with its very limited impact on mileage is called a mild hybrid. It is REALLY mild but it also another bit of high tech stuff that in my opinion is not worth the cost in relation to what you get. And what's it gonna do in five years? Multi-function tailgate is NOT something I...

    Any Drawbacks to 33 Gallon Tank?

    Actually, you do lose payload, BUT not off what your payload says on your label. Fuel is calculated to figure what your payload rating is. Some people try to calculate for towing and add a full fuel load to their calculations. You do NOT need to worry about fuel anymore since the companies...

    New to RAM

    Welcome and your first impressions? I'm a decade into them with the 21 being the third. I remember first time I drove my 2013 as a test drive. I was like, OK, this is NOT your grandpa's pick up truck. Now in the 21, I'm like wait, this is like my grandpa's Lincoln Continental.

    Electric Travel Trailer

    Sheesh what's next. Now of course since it is an Airstream, that already costs unbelievable amounts of money BEFORE this system, I'm thinking a 20 foot Bambi would be around 110K USD... My new 21 28 foot one slide Aspen Trail 2340 BHSWE cost 1/3rd what the shortest (19 foot?) Airstream Bambi...

    5th Gen Stock Stereo Upgrade Options?

    I'm thinking at least a couple of those are there for temp ascertainment for the auto climate control system where each person can have a different temp. I'm thinking they may have them there even on the ones without that option as it is likely cheaper to make ONE than two or three different tops.

    Price negotiated from MSRP

    I see a dealer with a very basic Bighorn quad cab for 36K and change in ****eysville Maryland. That's about as good as it gets. Not all that many Tradesman's out there... I think they are doing more uptrim models as there is more money in it.

    LOL, We are still loving it but I know what you mean. My wife has the Discovery Center license on her Cherokee and we stop every year and will be there this coming weekend Xcountry skiing/snowshoeing. You should have held off on selling. The Prices here have gone absolutely crazy on homes. I...

    MDS: Any Happy Stories About Great MPGs With It?

    If you like the little green eco light, get a 3.92. It shows up a lot less on the 3.21 vs my old 3.92.

    Ram Trucks Finish Second In U.S Sales For 2021!

    Watch If they go a couple of years with Chevy in second, they will do that. I think they liked being "first" but having two "clone" brands doing the job.

    Official Built to Serve Thread

    I built a new level for the dogs with storage underneath by putting the seats up. Even with the seats up in the new larger Gen 5's (I had a gen 4), the back of a crew cab is the size of a twin sized bed perhaps four or five inches short side to side. A 2 inch memory foam twin mattress and old...

    Pissed off about my new 2022 Ram 1500

    After researching, and hearing from most everyone that it doesn't seem to do much including with mileage, I just couldn't see adding on a piece of equipment for that price that has on some had issues and at some point is a likely point of failure...likely right after the warranty goes off. Just...
