Congrats on the 450. I would have gone bigger than my RAM 3500 Dually, but in California, it then gets taxed as a commercial vehicle once you go above a F350 or 3500! :-(

I commend anyone that is more than willing to tow there heavy camper with the right tow vehicle. Either one will be ok. 350 or 450 DWR

Anyone towing these large/heavy trailers with a 2500 or even a 3500 SWR truck is putting the lives of them selves/ there families and those that travel around them at risk.

This forum and many others are full of (can I tow this 16k+ camper with my 2500 truck)

Either piss or get off the pot, If you know what I mean. LOL

2) Larger brakes.
3) Liked the look for the wider front end :-)

Looking forward to my first tow with her.
Happy Camping!
That is a beautiful truck with lots of capability (even though it's not a RAM)
I'll bet you're excited (as you should be!) Enjoy!
