I have been reading through this thread figuring someone would chime in about towing with a 1500.
Three years ago I was in Hardin Montana visiting my brother. He wanted us all to go camping up on the Big Horn Mountains up out of Dayton Wyoming which is Hwy14. He had a Ford F250 7.3psd 5spd manual and his medium size 5th wheel and I had my RAM 2500 5.7 Hemi 8 spd and my 5th wheel. I let him take the lead but at the first passing lane I selected 5th gear at 3200 rpm and smoked him and waited for him to catch up to me at the pullout at Steamboat.
He asked me doesn't your truck overheat? I said not if I keep it wound up and the air moving through the radiator.
