Which is better for sand duning? Ram Longhorn Cummins or Ram Power Wagon 6.4 Hemi?

I'm planning to buy a new Ram for off-roading in Sand Dunes, but im so confused on which one to buy, Ram trucks has many options and im thinking to buy one of these three as a 2016 model. Ram 6.4 hemi power wagon, Ram Diesel Cummins Laramie Manual transmission, or Ram Diesel Cummins Longhorn. I understand that power wagon is buit for off-road and it is really good, but what i know that the cummins diesel has a very high torque reaching 800 foot pound of torque which is good. Which is better in sand duning? The 6.4 hemi or diesel Cummins? And which Ram trim will fit the best? Please help, your opinion is important to me in order to make up my mind.

Thumbs up

Ram Longhorn

Welcome to the Hemi Truck Club...especially if you choose the 6.4 Powered 'Hemi Power Wagon' which I do believe would be a better choice for the question you have asked.
The Cummins are great but also heavy and probably not as versatile and nimble in the sand or high articulation situations.

Also: Welcome to the Texas Chapter of HTC .

I have seen diesels and gassers. Pick your poison either will work if it's really soft dunes something with higher revs will likely be preferred though!

Thanks for the opinion, as I thought the power wagon would do much better on sand duning though the cummins is a bad *** and I'm so in love with the longhorn trim. I still think that the 6.4 needs to have more power versus its weight. Especially if I will tow some bikes when I go for camping.

You can do additional power mods to the 6.4 Hemi truck and add 4:56's to the differentials...just takes time, $$$'s, and people with the expertise to do it correctly the first time .
