I just traded my Ram 1500 Sport in on this new Ram 3500HD Laramie. It's the Cummins and 6speed auto combo. Very nice truck and the diesel has me grinning from ear to ear. This should yank our 28', 7000lbs camper around with ease. The only pics I have yet are from the dealership website...

Jeremy, you will love the Diesel. I have had my 7.3L Ford since about 2003 (its a 2001) and would have a hard time going back to a gas truck. My older Diesel is a little angry on the super cold mornings, but that is why they have block heaters! All my buddies report easy starts with their new rigs in the cold. By the way….you wont even know the camper is back there. These trucks pull the big fifth wheels around all the time, so the 7000# will be child's play for your new truck! Have fun and enjoy the ride :eagerness:

I have a 2013 Longhorn Laramie 2500 Cummins and Seastacker is right. These trucks are beasts and very capable trucks. It is amazing to see little sedans and sports cars planning to swoop in front of you as soon as the red light goes green. Because we all know big trucks are supposed to be slow, only to find out that the Cummins keeps them looking at the tail lights. These turbo's aren't no joke. I have to watch sometimes at the local eatery joints with sloped drive ways. I will break loose and start to spin if the pavement is wet. I'm not trying to, it just want's to go.

I can't go back to gas now. :encouragement:

I have a 1 ton cummins also, I am a diesel man. I'm a cummins man, but I will say my brother owns a Duramax and it runs great also. Seastacker has a great classis, those 7.3's are hard to beat too.

Yeah, no joke. I have mine loaded up with a few Banks Power goodies and a GTP 38R ball bearing turbo. I have shocked more than a few cars that thought they were going to scoot in front of me at lights or on the freeway. Nothing like a 7500# vehicle that will outperform most cars!

Great looking truck Jeremy, I have loved all my Cummins powered trucks. BTW- I live east of Nerk in Marne, we're close.

0% for 84 mo. is a great time to buy a truck of any brand.
I own a used Duramax now since July. I only pulled our fifth wheel twice before storing it for the winter. This truck is nothing compaired to the 6.2 liter I had. The dollar a gallon you will pay more for fuel is worth the price when towing comes into play.


Nice trucks gentlemen!!

It worked out in a wash for me really. I had a 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 that I got at best 16mpg out of on the highway. When I take this Cummins on the same road trip, I average 22-24mpgs. Granted, that isn't towing but it is nice to go 550 miles between fill ups.. Granted the bathroom stops me long before then.. Your going to love that new truck..
