Much as I hate to admit it, that's a good comeback!

That's impressive! C'mon Ford guys, let's see your photos. Sorry, Brickman, but I think this one beats the photos of your truck with load.

Manufactured picture.


Easy to tell, if that was a stock truck the butt would be dragging on the ground. I have seen plenty of stock Didges with much less load than that sag more than what this one is. The only way this STOCK Dodge has that hooked to his truck is if the jack is supporting the weight, and he just backed under the trailer for the pic.

In Alta's own words, this is a totally stock set up. Gotta again at your own game.

For you barely literate people

Com'on on guys. I specifically asked about the 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4X4 with the Hemi. I pull landscape trailers with power equipment and landscaping materials. I just want to know if these are good trucks that can plow, have good MPG (supposedly 16-18), can tow, maneuverable, and are okay to drive normally when I'm not working. Any of you guys have real experience with that?
Please if not... don't ramble on about your specific brand of loyalty.

Depends on how the load is distributed on the trailer, how much tongue weight.

Hey if Mopar can say its a HEMI!!!!
Its gotta be a great motor!!!!
In the 60's and 70"s NO other motor could catch the hemi! In the car and driver report the same car and driver you see on the news stands and tv (Quoted) top ten fasest cars of 1970 1st was a HEMI. Due to the hemisfericle head design made the monster motors fast! So if mopar kept to the legendary design there gonna have another mean motor!
