Re: My new truck

My Future mother in law just bought a 2010 4.7 crew cab 4x4 ram, it had to be ordered but it will be int his week. Since we have horses she has a 2 horse trailer with changing room/storage room. Its total weight is about 7500lbs loaded. Normally her son tows it with his f250 but he is going away for work and she asked me if she bought a truck if id be willing to tow the horse trailer and i said hell yes! The new 4.7 has so much more power then my wks 4.7 so she did not get the hemi. i make a thread with pics when its here.

Re: My new truck

I don't know about up there but down here dealers are offering free upgrades to the HEMI right now

Re: My new truck

Yea they are offering that here too but they had her convinced that the 4.7 is that much better on gas so he got the 4.7. Thats what was in my rental 09 ram and it still hauled ass so it will be fine.

The only problem with that is that the 5.7 gets better gas mileage than the 4.7 does though.

Dang beat me to it.. I was about to say I saw a 4.7 on the lot when I bought my truck and the sticker was 14/19 and the sticker on my truck was 14/20.

IDK why the salesman would try and get them in a cheaper truck either lol. When I was looking the guy grabbed the keys to every Laramie they had on the lot, and one sport model lol.

Re: My new truck

Nice truck, I really like how those look. I sat in one at a dealer and it was really nice!

I guess you couldn't wait for the new GC to come out lol.
