    I'm thinking of getting one too, wanna buy it for me? :laughing::laughing:
    They look like a really nice truck, scroll down and you'll find a thread where plowguy43 did a write up on his test trial in the new Ram.
    Put whatever plow you want to on the Hemi. I run a 9.5 XV on mine and wouldn't hesitate to put it on a 2011.

    Wouldn't go any smaller then a 9.5 of some sort or a wide out.
    It's a big truck anything else will be a waste and look stupid.

    I'm thinking of one too, I kinda want to get a diesel but I haven't heard much good about any of the new motors, the urea, and all the other crap, I think the gas would just be easier...and the most i pull would be 8 or 9 thousand pounds. plus Dodge has some good rebates going on right now!

    Dodge only utilizes urea in their cab chassis trucks. The 6.7 has pretty much all the bugs worked out of it now. The only issues I have are lower fuel efficiency with the emissions crap. I'm going to install a dpf delete kit and get rid of all that crap once the programming is out.

    Mike1316- I put almost 200 miles on a Crew Hemi 2500 for a weekend and loved the truck. DO NOT base any opinions on the 2010's from the earlier models. It is a completely different truck that has the nicest ride, IMO best interior, and plenty of room. The new HEMI with 380+HP has a lot of power (broke the tires loose at 30 or so when merging into traffic). Plus it has a bunch of smaller things that I liked- compartments built into the rear floor to hold drinks or whatever, storage everywhere, electric rear slider, etc. All 3 3/4 tons are awesome trucks and wouldn't hesitate to buy any of them but I think Dodge has the nicest of all 3 for the money. I just looked at a Ford and Chevy extended cab trucks that were pretty basic with power options and plow prep that were stickere for $38-$39k. I then saw a TRX Ram crew cab with plow prep and power options for $42k. IMO there is a lot more you get in the ram for the price difference.
