2014 6.4 2500

needing to trade up to a 2500 ram, was wondering if any one has the new 6.4 and can comment on if it can handle towing 12k of travel trailer?

Thanks poorboy 6.4 you're the person I was thinking about. I just cannot remember your name. I look at and read so many of the post that I forgot what you went by. But I do remember that you have one of the new 6.4 liter HEMI

We have a '14 3500 with the 6.4 and tows our 8000 lb travel trailer, 20-foot stock trailer and ski boat (one at a time of course) with no sweat. Couldn't be happier!

6K miles rear end gone

Folks I too purchased a 2014 RAM Bighorn with 6.4L mill. I drove from NM to MI and back 18 mpg round trip. The only regret I have now is what I thought was bullet proof rear axle assy turned out to be my bad. The rear carrier bearing was shot and the dealer still has my truck in for repairs. They did some of the repairs but now they tell me that the ring and pinion are also shot and they cannot align them so they too have to be replaced. Oh well I drew the short straw on this purchase. I will follow up when I get it back and everything is satisfactory. BTW, I noticed (heard) the whine (howl) from the rear axle on day one, it became louder as time and miles accumulated.

How much towing have you done with your 6.4?

I have yet to tow anything with the truck. The receiver has never had a hitch stabbed into it yet. I will be towing 10-12 K in the near future.
