New truck for me

Ok here goes I am looking at buying a 2009 2500 mega cab 4x4 5.7 litre hemi in it. It is a realy nice truck 160k on it my question is me and my brother split time every 6 mos or so with a case skidloader so once maybe twice a year a would pull it from his house to mine 15 miles apart no hills do you guys think this would pull it and be ok I have owned Ford's all my life but this dodge is a nice one!

Thumbs up

There are several 2500 Hemi owners here at HTC...one of them can give you their personal experience. Based on your hauling needs and the distance I would guess the 2500 would do just fine.

You can always check for dealer recalls that are specific to your truck. We have a section in the forum that addresses 2500 Hemi owners and there are a few knowledgeable MegaCab owners on here too. Scan through the individual posts and do a search with the HTC search engine to help with some answers. There should be some owners and our chief mechanic jump on here as the day goes on...

and again to HTC .

Like how big of a skidloader? And what type of trailer? Bumper? Gooseneck? It should handle a mid or small size easily with a bumper car hauler. If you're using an 18' or 20' gooseneck trailer a large frame machine should be ok. Look up towing capacities and load ratings for the truck if you have questions.
