  • New Ram 5500 With CM ER Bed

    Howdy Friends, I purchased this tow machine in Mar 2018 and took it on the road from TX to NM, AR, CA, OR, WA, ID, MN, WY, CO, and back to TX. Averaged 9.3 MPG with 33.4K Lbs GCVW. Truck has nice features: the Aisin is great, Max Tow programming, 4.88s. We looked at Freightliner M2 Sport Chassis, but it doesn't fit in many places we like to go when on the road. This truck is just a foot longer than a crew cab dually 3500, and with the spare tire where we have it, about 10 inches taller. We carry 112 gallons diesel so we have good range. 5500.jpg Anyway, we like it. Cheers, Ron Trip-1.jpg

                OK. I got a question, being that I'm nosey as all get out. In all but that last picture, there is something that appears to be attached to the top of the headache rack. What is that?

                  I'm asked a lot if I'm a storm chaser, but
                  It's the spare tire in a special ordered stainless steel cover. I mounted it myself. Cab and Chassis typicall don't have a place other than the bed. No room with my 60gal aux fuel tank and tool box. But if I had cutting and welding skills, I would counter sink the spare into the bed behind the 5th wheel hitch.

                  Cheers, Ron
