Warning! Long boring video with intermittent commentary. Don’t watch unless you are interested in seeing what it’s like to tow over the Tehachapi Pass in Southern California, enjoy the beautiful scenery and the sound of a Cummins 6.7L motor working.
It’s a long slow climb from 800 feet to 4000 feet with grades of 4-6%. It was a good test for the new 2018 Ram 3500 Cummins with the AISIN transmission.
The truck performed well efficiently holding highway speeds and passing slower traffic. By the end, the engine and transmission temperatures had barely risen.
We got a 2016 3500 dually in August. It has the 6.7 and just love that truck. I giggled as I played with the tow mode and the exhaust brake…LOL… the simple things that entertain me, cant help it. Cant tell the trailer is even back there when pulling. The only thing I dont like is that DEF system and crappy fuel milage, but when it comes to hauling loads, I can sacrifice! 😎 I was so excited for you guys when you posted you were getting a new truck and I still am! The new still hasnt worn off for me and I have to pinch my self, except when the payment comes out then I slap myself…lol. But it’s a truck that will last for several years and probably be our last since it will more than likely put live us…hahahaha. Congrats on the truck, seriously. Looking forward to tips and tricks on the truck!!
