Got me a new truck and plow :)

Discussion in 'Equipment, Tools & Vehicle Pictures' started by drivewaydoctor, Sep 19, 2010.

  1. Ram Quad cab with the 5.7 Hemi and 7'6" Western.
    Really enjoying the Hemi power. Hauled a double axle trailer yesterday with 5000lbs on it and I couldn't feel it there at all. Cant wait to start pushing some snow with this baby.

    you shouldnt be so quick to jump on him for saying that...Ram 1500s from 2002 to 2005 actually do have torsion bar front ends, they went back to coil springs in 06-current:mechanic:

    oh and NICE TRUCK!!

    Insert foot in mouth- like he said= 2002-2005 Ram 1500's (and every 4x4 Dakota since 86-2005) have Tbar front ends.

    The HEMI does have a lot of power, these trucks/transmissions love the gear as well. The higher the better. My 2500 has 4.10's and its night and day better than the 3.73's that I've driven, I wish it had 4.56's.

    Considering you have the 17" wheel package you probably have 3.55's in that (check your glove box tag to see what you really have). You'd be amazed at the power difference and mileage INCREASE you'll get with 4.10-4.56's.

    Great lookin rig!
