Agree with the staying within the specs. However, I find that I have no issues with my 2014 RAM 3500 DRW parking. The 8.5" display on the back up camera provides a perfect tool for backing. I can put my truck into any parking space out there so I park right where I would park my car, but I back in for ease. It may piss off the car next to me, but I pull in my mirrors and go shopping.

X3 I would not pull 16000 lbs with a SRW. I tried it when we first got our 3721RL did not feel safe.

Agreed...although I am able to fit my truck in the garage, it's a crazy tight fit and I cant walk behind, or in front of it with the garage door closed. Todays new trucks coupled with the price of new montanas can challenge or even surpass what people have in their houses. With that kind of investment it's hard to leave the truck outside, no matter the inconvenience.

Too tight for my wife with the truck in the garage so the 2 SUVs go in. The F350 is out but traded more often. I generally trade between 150,000 and 200,000 miles so about 3 1/2,years at most.

Ram 3500 DRW trucks are like hunting dogs. They prefer to be outside
