TFLTruck did a Ike Gauntlet tow test of a 2015 Ram 6.4L 4.10. Identical axle ratio and load (12.5K) to the 2015 Chevy 2500 they tested a few months ago. The Chevy gives up ~50hp and lb-ft. Surprising outcome.

2014 Ram 2500 6.4L towing report. The owner admits his old 2007 Cummins towed better but this 6.4/4.10 combo is plenty for his occasional towing of a 12K 5th wheel. Some respondents complain of the gaps in the 66RE 1-2-3 gears, and one reply ...more
