Got a better pic of mine, '89 3/4 ton. I love 1st gen Rams, I just wish it had the Cummins instead of the 5.9L.

we use a 1996 suburban K2500 4x4. its got the 7.4l 454 in it and a 14b out back. did the hypertech power programmer to free up some more power. get about 13mpg AT BEST empty on the highway. 8mpg is more average.

Completely stock, and keeping it that way...

2005 Nissan Frontier NISMO 4x4

Here is my overloaded Frontier moving all my tools and crap up to my parents house in NC from SC when I was about to leave for Japan. I no longer have this truck but when I didn't have all the crap loaded in the bed, backseat, inside the Jeep and on the trailer on top of the Jeep's weight it did pretty darn good. Of course I had trailer brakes which helped but this U-Haul trailer was a pig and it was a little tounge heavy in the picture. My next tow rig is going to be a used GMC diesel 4x4 2500HD or a 3500.

Cummins Power

Just joined here. I am pulling with a 08 Ram with a 6.7L Cummins. Big upgrade from a Tahoe with a 5.3L gasser. I can't post a pic up here yet, but will when I can. Quad Cab long bed. I like it when it is pulling, you don't notice anything back there.
