Happy New Year, everyone!! Well, here it is, the new truck I’ve been telling you about. She’s a 2013 Dodge Ram 3500 4×4 pickup. The color is Pearl Blue, which is essentially Navy Blue with metal flake. The new ride is powered by the Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel and has a payload of 3,809 pounds. And, yes, those are 18-inch tires on her.
I was pretty happy with the deal I got at the dealership. The icing on the cake for me was the lifetime warranty on the engine and drive-train. Superstition Springs Dodge, where I bought the vehicle, is the only MOPAR dealership in the state of Arizona that offers this warranty.
Next up is getting her outfitted with a set of Torklift Tie Downs, so I can haul the truck camper. Unfortunately, the old set of tie downs I bought for the Ford F-250 won’t fit this truck. I will be selling this old set for $350.00. If you are interested, send me an email.
Also, when I picked her up I was pleasantly surprised to find that the bed was already wired with a seven-pin RV trailer outlet. This feature comes standard with the 5th Wheel/Gooseneck option, something I didn’t know when I ordered this truck. I’ll need to lengthen my camper’s electrical umbilical as the outlet is further back in the truck bed, but that should only take a couple hours.
