Long awaited truck finally here!

Well the LONG awaited new truck is finally in my driveway!!!!!

Picked it up yesterday at AutoNation in Seattle. 2015 RAM Dually LongHorn CrewCab Aisin/4:10's and rear air.

So far with just a couple hours behind the wheel I like it. There are so many new things to learn compared to my 11 HO Dually LongHorn I traded in.

I was NOT happy with the ride. The factory had 80psi on all 6 tires so I dropped the rears to 45 and it rode MUCH better.

The Aisin/4:10 combo will really get the load moving easily compare to the 11 with 68RFE/3:42's.

The "Full On" exhaust brake mode is awesome.

The front suspension makes the 11's look wimpy! Very massive.

Have a B&W RVK3600 sitting in the bed in two boxes and am anxious to get that installed and my HighwayProducts bed height tool box installed.

Can't wait to hook up and really give it a workout!

I like it and I prefer Ford. I would seriously look at it when I change trucks. Looks like a well appointed truck. Hope it runs well and a long time for you.

I used the RV.NET photo posting site to load the pics. I could not figure out this sit for photo loading.

We have Ford friends and they were very impressed with our 11 that we traded in. They really liked the ride and leather seats. They have the KingRanch.

I think people should check out all three. I stick with RAM because of the Cummins but the trucks have been great.

In November I bought a new 2014 ram 3500 2wd cummings aisen with 4:10's...all I can say is ...SHE IS A BEAST!!! Mine is a crew cab as well but a tradesman..I don't need all that fancy stuff...vynil seats with a rubber floor mat is what I need due to using it hauling cattle and tractor on the ranch.

Hooked up to my 5er 11000 loaded and it acted like it wasn't back there...your gonna love how she pulls I mean love it.

She sure is purdy!!!!

Just took it on about a hour drive on some windy country roads and it handles the corners very well! No rolling it tracked flat.

CONGRATS !!!!!!. That is one great looking truck and it will do the job. Do some reading over on Cummins forum. I would put some more PSI in at least the front tires. That's an 8,000+ pound truck there. Don't freek out if you see a CEL, most just go away. Don't put DEF in the fuel tank. Have fun with that 8.4 sat radio, turn it up. Lots to learn on those new Rams. BTW, when it says your low on fuel, you really are LOW on fuel.
