2022 RAM 5500 Tradesman Crew Cab & Chassis 4X4
What amount of dovetail does that trailer have? Reminds me of my 16+4 10.4K Sure Trac I previously owned.
Having owned a 1998 RAM 2500 12V, a 1999 RAM 2500 24V, a 2000 RAM 2500 24V, and a 2003 RAM 2500 5.9L HO HPCR, I can certainly attest to the fact that any 6.7L with EGR is going to build cab heat much, much quicker than any of the previously mentioned vehicles, with the 12V being the absolute worst for quick heat.That's odd, since my Cummins will start providing warm air within a mile or so, without having been plugged in, and in lower ambient temperatures. And the (to me) important oil temp will indeed reach if not optimum, at least close to 200 degrees within less than 10 miles.
Buy some of these, Mr. MoneyBagzzzzzAfter looking at a variety of ramps and seeing the shortcomings of each, I decided to build my own set of ramps from 2 x 12 boards. I haven't figured out the height yet, but that's my plan for next week.
An oil analysis this early on is tossing good money away, simply because so much is going on with break-in. It’s nothing that one could formidably use for establishing any kind of baseline.I took an oil analysis just to see how the oil is holding up. Next time I'll switch to Amsoil.
I would be scared to death of a 40’ trailer that only weighed in at 6,000 lbs....unless it was an open center car hauler. I know that some of the GatorMade trailers can get up into the 9,500 lb range and above in the 35+5 variety. I’ve pulled some 35+10 trailers, fully optioned, that came in at 11,500 lbs.Also, found a pretty well priced trailer, brand new Lamar. 40 ft deck, 21k rating, although it was triple single layout, advertisment said the trailer only weighed like 3k pounds, even though the manuf website says well over 6, with a 14k payload. So that trailer won't cut it for me. Might hit up that dealer though and have them quote me one of their heavier duty trailers, if they can do 'em at the same price as that one or close, i may just buy new from them. Best part is they are only 8 and a half hours away one way. that's a nice and easy drive
Correct. Each quarterly IFTA filing I do is based on miles and gallons of diesel fuel purchased in each state. This is based on a registered weight over 26,001 lbs.It already works that way to some extent, through fuel taxes. And if you run commercially, the taxes are specific for the amount of miles driven in a given state.
