Towing 10k?

22237 Views 23 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  WHD
Did Ram underrate this ecodiesel or can I tow a 10k boat rig with a quad cab 4x4 and 3.92 axle?

Currently we use my buddy's Tundra and it pulls it fine but around 7mpg.

Better get your manual out and see what the proper operating range is for your truck. That's the safes bet. I'll be towing my 3500 lb boat in a couple of months then I can reply on what my gauges are reading.
Great pic, thanks for this. Do you have a load levelling hitch or just rely on the air suspension?
Yes,, I have a WD hitch with stabilizer bars and Timbrins on the truck. No air.just coils. :cool:
Perfect, me too. Good to know I can tow a 34" trailer with the right hitch.
zoomie, do not plan to win any races though. I set the trannie to 7th gear and do not want it to even worry about 8th. It spends most of its time in 6 and 7. It was very responsive to the throttle when needed.:)
That's what I would expect with that load. Thanks again.
Towing went well mpg reading about 11-12 most level roads ,min wind , stay in 7th gear ,water 210F tranny 165F oil temp 212F power was good no issue at 60-65 mph I only wish i had upgrades tire a bit could feel some bit of tire roll other than that motor and truck did good job
Great review, thanks for this.
