2008 RAM 2500 SLT REG Cab 4x4......It's got all the options (to many to list) , as well as the color I wanted. The only thing I question is the 3:73 differential. Should I have the 4:10 differential for towing 6000 pound trailer up and down hills of northern pensylvania/New York? (Mostly on secondary roads , as well as dirt roads) 2.) I've had this dealer , as well as one other dealer tell me the incentives add up to $5500.00. Yet , when he wrote this quote up , he has $4500.00 , which is labled "rebate". Here's what is written on the fax; MSRP= $43450.00 , Invoice= $39500.00 , Rebate= $4500.00 , Bottom line = $35,000.00. Should I make counter offer/hold out? Or , should I arrange financing? I'm not in any hurry. Just don't want to miss the boat.
not a bad deal dodge seems to be giving good deals on the cummins lately. as for the 3.73s, milage will be better and you will get better towing on the highway. however, around town on secondary roads the 4.10s will be nice in the hills for gettin the power down. i have 4.10s and they are great in the hills.

I had the 3:55's in all my CTD's till 2003 when they swapped for 3:73's. I have had that gear in my last three CTD's and have never found the need for more gear. I pull an 18K 38 foot toybox and don't have a problem.

lot of $$ for a reg cab truck. have you had reg cabs in the past? not telling you what to do just dont want you to get stuck in a truck that gets old fast.
Yes , I've always had regular cab trucks. I have to admit , the quad cab is nice for the additional room. One big reason I stay with regular cab is over all length of truck/trailer. I manuver into tight areas in order to set up my equipment , yet need an 8 foot bed. I have considered the quad cab with shorter bed. I'm not sure I'd be happy with the shorter bed. Don't worry about offending me. I'm looking for Pro's / Con's / feedback. This truck is a major purchase for me. Thanks!
with that you wont like going from an 8' to a 6.5' bed. if you use to working in a reg cab great. remember this dont expect to sell that truck any time soon if you dont like it or it gets to $$$. very small market for a truck like that at that price.

I tow a 3000lb Jeep on a 1800lb trailer consistently on the weekends and hills are included. My Dooge with 3.73's doesn't even know it's back there. The heaviest vehicle I had on it was somewhere between 4500-5000lbs, again the Dooge didn't even know it was back there and that was towing up through the Eisenhower Pass in Colorado. The Dooge was pulling fine :thumbsup
Oh yea, you won't be disappointed with a quad cab, well worth it. I don't have any kids, but that extra room comes in plenty handy.
