Leftover 2018 3500 Laramie Ram

Okay guys tell me what you think I ran across and new leftover 2018 3500 Laramie that have on owner for less than $55,000. Of course it have all of the bells in it for a Laramie I want to see if I can trade in my 2017 2500 diesel but I'm afraid that they want give me enough to pay it off. So if the numbers work out should I go for it or not, the only thing that I care about ( big thing ) is that I will have enough payload with out worrying? Tell me what you think.

Only you can make the decision about financing and all that.
FWIW I have an Ď18 3500 SRW with the Aisin, also a Laramie and love the damn thing.
Payload on mine is a shade over 3800lbs.
I did look at several 2500s before I mouth mine and they all had payloads in the 22-2500 range , at least the ones I looked at. They were loaded up pretty good though from an options standpoint so that always effects payload.

Depends on what you are planning to tow at the end of the day.
I have a toy hauler, so itís hitch heavy, and we have designs on upgrading to a 5th toy hauler in a year or two which is why I went 3500.

If you're worried about payload, find a DRW 3500 and be done with it. I picked up a 2018 3500 SRW to tow our new 5th wheel toyhauler and have nothing to complain about as it does all that I need.

3500 will ride a little rougher then the 2500 as its a leaf sprung truck vs your coil over 2500. I've seen several 18 laramies going under 52 around here, however i'm being picky with wanting a long box, and not wanting to let the dealer screw me over. Most of them have been offering half of what my truck is worth, and refusing to budge on negotiations. which has lead me to walk out of several dealers

Enough payload for what???

Guarantee you won't get payoff on the 17 unless you put a huge amount down on it when you bought it.

So is it new or one owner? Can't be both.

If it's new, $55k is about right from what the volume dealers are selling them for, might doo a tad better in the right situation. If it's used, it's overpriced.
What again is the concern with your 2500 besides being a Bighorn and not a Laramie (cheap azz leather btw, not really an upgrade IMO)?
What's the payload concern? Unless you're hauling a truck camper, the coil springs aren't a great design for that, you can haul the same, safely, in the 2500 bed as the 3500. Around 2500-3000lbs, you'll want some airbags or HD coils though if doing more than bringing a load of landscape rock home for the wife to spread! Rest of the chassis is the same as a 3500.

I have a 12,000 lbs fiver that I might be a little over payload I'm not sure because I haven't taken it to the scale, the 3500 will give way over my needed payload.

Been round and round with this on here many times.

Once you are hooked to a trailer like you are looking at, the payload rating of the truck itself is irrelevant, you are no longer under the truck's GVWR, with a trailer you are under GCWR, Gross COMBINED Weight Rating, you then go by the axle weight ratings.

Your 2500 CC 4x4 has a 5th wheel towing rating in the 16K range, well over your trailer's 12K trailer weight.

So, unless you do something crazy, like over-load it with 4,000 pounds of stuff in the nose of the trailer and pack the truck bed with another 2,000 pounds of stuff, your current 2500 will be well within its axle weight limits.

Now, it's your deal, buy a new 3500 if you want, but you don't need to.

I regularly tow trailers of 14K actual weight with my 2500 Mega Cab with no issues at all.

Oh, okay, this is what I wanted to hear because I can save that money to do something else with thanks for this.

Doesn't everybody put a huge amount down to lower what payment is left ? Seems like the smart thing to do.

He is still paying his truck off with over 450,000 miles on it. I think it must of been 0 down and took some cash for that 2015. Tax write off I guess.

Take this for what itís worth. I have a 2014 Laramie with Cummins and factory air system. My payload is about 2250 or something like that. I have pulled my 5th wheel from PA throughout the south and as far as Key West multiple times. I know Iím about 300 lbs over on GVWR pulling our 35í camper, but Iím well under GVCWR and axle rating. My unit tows like a dream, but I wouldnít want to pull something too much heavier, even though I know the truck can handle considerably more. FYI I regularly see guys towing way more weight in 2500ís but I just donít think I would. Also I have never heard that GVWR is irrelevant once your trailer is attached as one poster above stated. He may be right but I did s fair amount of research on this before buying and I never heard that before. I have heard that 10,000 pounds is an arbitrary number in so much as itís not based on capability but instead to minimize registration fees.
