    Default New Tow Pig/DD

    Well decided it was time to get a more responsible vehicle, and since I have the quest, I got rid of the GTI. got me a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi. It also has the towing package.

    Here's a pic of it the day after I got it.

    After this load I have decided that since I will be hauling this setup a few times throughout the summer, that I am going to buy an airlift leveling kit for the rear of the truck.

    Mine didn't really sag a ton. It seems like every Dodge every 1500 dodge I've seen towing sags a good bit though.

    Just let it sag. Doesn't hurt anything as long as the trailer is running level.

    Doesn't hurt anything, but sure does look funny.

    Well emailed for my build sheet and found out I have a recall that needs done. Rear axle pinion nut. Also got an intake for it. Came off a commander 5.7 so I need to make some modifications to make it fit right but here is my honky ass way for now.

    Did a few things to the truck since I've got it. Got a set of led fogs (no picture yet), few battle wounds on the bumpers, and just put on an exhaust.
