    I've left the fold....sort of.

    They are not. I swapped the 20s for these when I traded, and had the 285/75 Wildpeaks installed immediately after trading. I'm not a fan of big wheels and Rubber band tires on Forest Service Roads. These do have a slight rub at full lock when the. suspension is in the entry/exit or aero mode...

    I've left the fold....sort of.

    Over ten last several months, my mobility issues have gotten noticeably worse to the point it became a real struggle to enter and exit my truck.

    Positive Thread!

    I had 19,000 trouble free miles on mine when I traded. It was one of the three best trucks I've ever owned. The other two were the 18 Rebel I traded in on the 19 HD,and the other is the 20 1500 Limited that I traded my 2500 in on. Ram has really stepped up their game over the last 10 years.

    Max tire size questions stock wheels/lift

    Going to buy travel. trailer before Jan 1

    If you read the message above, you would realize I am not buying any trailer because I am having real trouble getting in my 2500. I traded for the 15500 to allow easier entry/exit. The new truck is much easier to get in, but it is not meant to tow heavy at all. And I wonder why anyone who...

    Going to buy travel. trailer before Jan 1

    Well, the stock market was good this year, so I think I'm going to splurge a bit. Probably going to buy one of these two: https://outdoorsrvmfg.com/black-stone-260rlsb/ or this one...... https://outdoorsrvmfg.com/timber-ridge-25rts/ There are advantages to bothe, but either will work for...
