Quads have extensively more output. Only the fog lights turn off when you have your high beams on.

When I bought my ST, my only requirement was it must have quad's vs duals.

My 2500 would tank to around 12 MPG even with the CTD pulling a 18x8x8 box empty. Pulling a 5k boat I would get around 18.

If it tanks my diesel like that, I can't imagine what it would do to a...

We plan on towing a lot during the months we can, normally trips we can do in a weekend+a holiday or PTO.

SRW vs DRW The daily driver

So I've pretty much decided on the truck I want aside from the SRW vs DRW. I would be towing near the limits of a SRW, with a 40-44' fifth wheel.

With that said, this truck will also be my daily...

Wow.. I just looked it up, Texas has 83 total. Oklahoma has 523 stations, Arkansas 300. I guess I take for granted how easy it is to find for me. I wouldn't put anything else in my boat.

89 Octane and real gas. The Hemi doesn't like Corn-Juice. I run 87 for daily driving. When it comes to towing it's 89 non-eth.

My 2500 had them as well. If you're pulling anything with a bit of length to it, they're worth every penny. They are terrible as general mirrors though. I left mine folded out even for every day...

I would check those numbers.. The 2500 is more around 2,400-2,600 payload. The RAWR (Rear Axle Wait Rating) is around 6k, so around 4k after the weight is gone, but the 2500 can't get near that as...

All the advantages of the manual are gone. As for the number shift in towing, look at the specs.

370 hp @ 2,800 rpm 800 lb-ft @...

First, I would say consider a 3500 SRW. The payload on the 2500 is around 2,300, which is the pin weight before you load anything into it, let alone add the weight of the passengers and the hitch.

I didn't see anything about gearing, but I may have missed it. If it used 3.55's it might have been the lower of the numbers.

The big thing to keep an eye on is payload. When I was looking at...

My 1500 Sport is a 5.7 with 3.55's. It's tow rating is 1600 payload, with a 7,700 lb trailer.

It's really not enough to pull a good sized travel trailer. I'm sure you could pull a 10,000 lb...

The new 1500's seem to have less payload than the old ones. My 10 has a few hundred pounds more than a 2012.

As stated above, I would buy based on how often I play to tow. You can get a Hemi...

No more 2500

So recently I switched jobs and started driving 80 miles a day. At 16 MPG, that was costly, even with the HUGE increase in pay.

So after looking at quite a few cars, I decided on the VW Passat...

What's really sad, is that I'm still considering a 5500. The two things holding me back are.. it's going to ride even worse and at most it'll get 10-12 mpg.
