    Default 2014 Ram 2500 Outdoorsman

    I traded in my 2011 Ram 1500 Sport model about a month ago and decided to go with something that was more heavy duty. I found this truck in Virginia. It is an Outdoorsman model with Nav, and sunroof. The only things that have been done to it so far is the toolbox, K&N CAI, and a 2 1/2 leveling kit with Fox 2.0 shocks front and rear. So far I like the 2500 a lot better, and it sits about 4 inches higher than my 1500 with leveling kit.

    Here is the touch screen. It is a little hard to get used, but it is nice to have the larger screen, and the backup camera makes it really easy to hook up a trailer.

    Nice, does it have recirculating ball or rack steering? How is the ride compared to the 1500?

    The ride is a little rougher, but not bad at all. The 2014 got a stronger frame, 3 link front suspension with a 5 link coil spring rear suspension.

    I was a little taken by the coils in the rear but looks like a solid setup for sure

    Looks good. Needs some man-sized tires now.

    So, rack or recirculating ball?

    The 4WD gets the recirculating ball style, while the 2WD still has the rack and pinion.

    It will get a set of 35x12.50 at some point.

    I was hoping they finally added rack to the 2500.
