I really like the JBA shortie headers. Use Mopar gaskets. IMHO, 6,000 lbs is not a heavy trailer, I've towed much heavier. Think about MagHytec differential cover and transmission pan for extra...

I 've driven at least 10 miles past DTE= 0 at least once with the 26 gallon tank. It took over 26 gallons to fill it. I really doubt there was much left but fumes. I just got caught in a place with...

If the tire is too wide you might try a wheel spacer. There may be a bit of difference between tires. I have Falkens on my Ram now, the 275/60/20" Falkens are quite a lot narrower than the Hankooks...

Seems like Mopars have always been used to make movies, tv shows cooler. Remember the Ram in "Death Race" ? Want to make your movie cooler, put in a Mopar!:smileup:

Why not put her back to stock? Call me an old fart, but I'd rather drive a nice handling truck than one thats lifted. If you don't have a rear sway bar, that might help, though.

As far as reliable, pretty hard to beat a hemi. 205,000 miles on my Ram, 300,000 miles on my RT Magnum, never missed a lick. But, I'll go with the 4.0L Jeep as #1. A friend drove his Cherokee over...

I like the Vararam intake, but it may not be the best for driving in snow. Headers are a worthwhile mod, a Diablo tuner, perhaps an aftermarket cat back exhaust. I like the sound of the Borlas....

I'd try towing a bit slower maybe 65 as long as your not holding up traffic. I'd then trust Tow/Haul mode. I recently towed a very heavy load on a big 5th wheel flatbed trailer behind my hemi,...

I guess if you put a level in the bed and check her for level sitting on level pavement. Gotta say all of the 2500 Cummins Rams that I've driven were stock and rode very nice, even my friend's old...

Welcome to the forumz. Here's one thing to make her handle better: Rancho 9000 shocks. Had em on my Ram for 202,000+ miles. Fully adjustable, I like em cranked up to the max. Another thing, rear sway...

Thanks for all the advice! I can actually lower the front end by dropping the torsion bars. Perhaps pull out a couple rear leaves as I already have 2500 rear springs. I'm a retired boat builder, so...

Fred, I have 3:92 gears. I think I have enough gear. 80 mph is only 2300 rpms in 5'th gear, so in theory 215 mph at 6200. I know it's not going close to that speed, but my gut tells me it might do...
