what is your gear ratio? And does the air bags help a lot with stock tires and 3.21 gears? My future boat fully loaded will be pushing 7500# and truck is weighted for 8100

Gear ratio is 3.21. I use the truck for anything under 100 miles to tow the boat. For any longer distance or my bi-annual vacations to Florida, I rent a 3/4 ton.

The air bags are a must in my case. Tongue weight is 950lbs and the squat would be unbearable with the standard coils. I am running timber grove asam kit for the airbags and they have been rock solid on this truck and the Ram eco diesel I had before this one.

I swapped tires at 5000 miles for the nitto crosstek2 truck tires. Although the standard xl tires that come on the 20” would do fine with this weight.

My enclosed 20' v-nose car trailer with my Camaro in it weighs about 7,000 lbs. Just towed from Florida to Michigan a couple of weeks ago. Drove straight through. No issues at all. No added suspension doodads, no wd hitch. See sig for truck info.

About 70 miles, some hills and a little headwind. Just under 5k pounds. Surprising 13.7 mpg

Anyone towing a nitro z21 or something similar with the 3.21?
Finally fueled up before and after a lake trip. 9.3mpg while pulling 6400ish pounds.... think it's slightly better than my 2016 F150 2.7l Eco..... but I didn't buy either of these trucks for economy. RAM pulls great, no issues with power or delivery.

I would get a 8,000 or 8,500 lb hitch ball if it is a 2" ball needed and a 10,000 lb or more hitch..... unless the ball is 2- 5/16" then 10,000 minimum for both.
