2019 Ram 3500 Limited

Anyone with a new Ram have thoughts/experiences?

I am picking my new tow vehicle up on Friday.

2019 Ram 3500 Limited with the new 400hp/1,000lb-ft Cummins.

This will be my third Ram with the Cummins and the platform is well proven.

No truck wars, please. We all know all the newer HD trucks are amazing machines.

$16k. Expected a bit less due to rust (it was a Wisconsin truck before I got it)

Still pretty good price. While we take a hit when we buy them, they sure hold their value more than any other vehicle I've bought in 45 years. Let's see those photos when you take get the new one home.

Picked up the new TV last night - so far extremely impressed with the fit and finish, features, power and the quiet ride. Pictures will come soon. The B&W hitch gets delivered today.

Knocking out the break-in mileage this week and weekend. Will tow the Voltage next weekend and see how it feels.

The power numbers on these new diesels is staggering. Long ago I worked at a gravel pit in Michigan, delivering rock and moving heavy equipment. I used a Ford tri axle dump truck that pulled an 8 wheeler pup, full loaded it weighed close to 100,000lbs. It had a 350hp Cummims big cam with 1100ft-lbs of torque.

I did have a few more gears to shift through

I didn't realize you were that close, I used to golf over at Belle River.
