I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 cummins with a 6 spd manual bought new. I tow a 14000 lb 5th wheel. When I retired and started towing I added a Pacbrake exhaust brake. The combo of the 6 spd std and the exhaust brake is awesome for control of the rig in the mountains, and even on the flats. I spend my summers in Gunnison CO.
If you're buying a Ram that isn't new enough to have a 6 spd auto, I recommend the std and add an exhaust brake if you can swing it. I like my Pacbrake a lot.
