2013 RAM 3500
We, at AUTOCHOICE, are very excited to bring to you a very rare, clean, RAM Longhorn DSL truck that a person will have to look long and hard to find. We have it here, at AUTOCHOICE. This two owner truck is everything the photos show and more. In fact, not much more I can say about it. The owner traded his fifth wheel for a motor coach. This truck is all set up for 5th wheel, wiring and base frame. All you have to do is mount your 5th Wheel hitch base and your ready to go. Tires have 3-4,000 miles on them. Over 120 photos that will show you everything and more about this truck. The following information is for those serious BIG truck enthusiasts that know about transmissions. This truck has the famous AISIN Transmission which is the answer to GM’s Allison Transmission. If you don’t know about these transmissions, we have placed below a complete review brought to us by the Badger Truck and Auto Group. This article brings you comparison between the Aisin and Allison Transmission. Follow the link here Badger Truck and Auto Group if you wish to get it direct from their web-site. Not all 3500’s come with the Aisin transmission. If you want a strong truck to get your job done, this is the one you will want. In the photos you will see the photo of the transmission serial (part) number and on the torq converter cover a stamp with the number 3. This confirms it is a Aisin transmission. The photos are located at the very end of the photos. If you have any questions concerning this, please call Don at (509) 301-1498. Another important point we want to make is concerning the carfax report that shows the truck has “DAMAGE REPORTED.” Please note, its doesn’t say accident report. And the illustration shows it was at the rear. Let me explain. The owner had his grand-son help him hook up the 5th wheel to the hitch and he forgot to trip the lock to keep the hitch in place. When the owner moved the truck slowly to a new location, the 5th wheel slipped onto the bed. As a result the bed was damaged beyond the price of a new bed. Therefore the insurance company authorized a full replacement of a brand new bed. You will also note, the key hole is absent the key lock. That will be installed before delivery to the new owner. By the way, the carfax report is available upon request. By the way, you will notice this accident happened just months after the owner bought this truck.
Call/text Don today (509) 301-1498, with your questions and to make an appointment to see and drive this truck. If you would like to see a microscopic view of the photos, just reach out to Don with your email address and he will send you a Dropbox link. Shop around and see what you can find, you won't find it! If you do, and its a better price, buy it quick, because these don't last long!, not with these low miles and ALMOST NEW condition!! Oh, by the way, if you do find one, make sure it has a AISIN transmission.
For those bidding on eBay, please call/text for the DropBox link for full screen microscopic feature to give the truck that close up view, that number is (509) 301-1498. Remember, if you really want this truck and don't want to wait to the end, auction can be stopped right up to the last 12 hours of auction ending. For special instructions on how you can do this, call (509) 301-1498. AGAIN, we can not stress enough how nice this truck really is, we encourage you to order the DropBox link!

The fourth generation Dodge Ram was introduced at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This latest generation was sold as the 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 starting in Fall 2008. The 2500, 3500, 4500 and 5500 models were later added to the lineup. In 2010, the Ram Trucks brand was separated from Dodge.
Chrysler LLC attempted to keep the Ram competitive in the market through various developments for the 2009 model, including a new four-door cab style offering, new suspension, a new hemi engine option, and the Rambox, a new storage system that allows secure storage inside the truck's bed walls. Later models have the Rambox system tied in with the remote keyless system
Class exclusive manual transmission
Since 2011, Ram trucks are marketed as having "class-exclusive" manual transmissions. This is because the competitors stopped making manual transmissions available in the domestic market. Chevrolet Silverado trucks discontinued the option of a manual transmission after model year 2006. Ford Super Duty trucks discontinued the option of a manual transmission after model year 2010. This applies to Class 2, Class 3, Class 4 and Class 5 trucks. 2011 and 2012 models make 350 hp (261 kW; 355 PS) and 610 lb⋅ft (827 N⋅m) of torque. Horsepower remained the same for 2013 models, torque however, was increased to 660 lb⋅ft (895 N⋅m) of torque. Engine output remained the same for 2014 models.
The Mega Cab option was deleted on the 1500 model, replaced by a true four-door crew cab. Other cab options are regular cab and Quad Cab. The Mega Cab option remains on the heavy-duty models, along with crew cab. Improvements made from the previous generation mean the rear seats are now able to recline.
A coil spring five-link rear suspension replaces the leaf-springs for the 1500.
The 2009 model's towing capacity was originally rated at 9,100 lb (4,128 kg) for 2WD Ram 1500 with regular cab, long-bed, 5.7 L Hemi engine, 3.92 differential and 17-inch wheels, but the rating increased to 10,450 lb (4,740 kg) without changing the setup. For the 2010 model, payload was increased by 50 lb (23 kg) to 1,900 lb (862 kg) for the regular cab 2WD model with the 3.7 liter V6 engine.
Towing capacity for the regular cab Ram 1500 with 3.21 differential is rated at 6,100 lb (2,767 kg) with 17-inch wheels and 5,900 lb (2,676 kg) with 19-inch wheels. Crew Cab and Quad Cab models are rated at 5,700 lb (2,585 kg) and 5,800 lb (2,631 kg) respectively.
Gross Combined Weight Ratings is 11,000 lb (4,990 kg) for all Ram 1500s with 3.21 axles; max 15,500 lb (7,000 kg) for 2WD Ram 1500 with long bed, 5.7 L hemi engine, and a 3.92 differential.
Heavy Duty Chassis Cabs
Chassis Cab versions were made for the Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 models. The 3500 Heavy Duty model was unveiled at the 2009 Chicago Auto Show.
Engine choices include 5.7 L Hemi V8 rated at 383 bhp (286 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 542 N⋅m (400 lb⋅ft) at 4,000 rpm for Ram 3500, 6.7 l Cummins turbo diesel rated at 350 bhp (261 kW) at 3,013 rpm and 880 N⋅m (649 lb⋅ft) at 1,500 rpm for Ram 3500 (optional), 4500, 5500. Late-model 2011 diesel trucks were up-rated to 800 lb⋅ft (1,085 N⋅m) of torque.
Transmission choices included a standard 6-speed manual or optional 6-speed Aisin automatic. Both transmissions support the Power Takeoff option.
The 3500 model has regular or crew cab, single-rear-wheel or dual-rear-wheel. Four cab-axle lengths (60, 84, 108 and 120 inches) for 4500/5500 or two cab-axle lengths (60 and 84 inches) for 3500, and three trim levels (ST, SLT and Laramie).
The Ram 3500 has three axle ratios (3.42, 3.73 and 4.10) and 17-inch wheels. Ram 4500/5500 has three axle ratios (4.10, 4.44 and 4.88) and 19.5-inch wheels. The 4500/5500 Rams rear axle is a Dana S 110. The front axle on 4x4 models is manufactured by Magna, while 2-wheel-drive models just have a solid, non-drive axle.
The Ram concept truck "Long Hauler" from 2012 is based mostly on existing Ram truck parts. The powertrain, frame and wheels are all components of the Ram 5500 Chassis Cab. It is a "Mega Cab" optional on the lighter Rams. The GCWR for this truck is 37,500 lb and the weight of the truck is 9,300 lb.
The 1500 gets a minor restyling. It features new front fascia, optional projector beam halogen headlamps with LED turn signals/parking lamps, wheels and interior, where the "DODGE" name was removed from the dashboard and replaced with "RAM".
All models offered for 2012 continue to be available for 2013 with the addition of a new trim, the Laramie, Longhorn, Limited. (Tradesman, Express, SLT, Big Horn, Lone Star, Sport, R/T, Laramie, and Laramie Longhorn). The Rambox cargo management system continues to be available on most models for 2013. For 2013, the base ST model becomes the Tradesman model.
2013 models have revised engine and transmission options. The 3.7 L V6 is discontinued, and the 4.7 L V8 equipped with the 6-speed 65RFE Automatic takes its place as the new base engine, still producing 310 bhp (231 kW; 314 PS) and 330 lb⋅ft (447 N⋅m). New to the lineup is Chrysler's corporate 3.6 L Pentastar V6, coupled to the new ZF 8-speed Torqueflite8 Automatic. It achieves best in class fuel efficiency and makes 305 bhp (227 kW; 309 PS) and 269 lb⋅ft (365 N⋅m). The Pentastar/ZF 8-speed is optional. Due to a new electric power steering system, the 5.7 L HEMI V8 no longer has a power steering pump, and gains 5 horsepower, now making 395 bhp (295 kW; 400 PS) and 410 lb⋅ft (556 N⋅m). It is still available with the 65RFE 6-speed Automatic, with the new 8-speed Torqueflite8 Automatic optional.
Air suspension is optional for 2013 models, offering four ride height settings. Electronic stability control becomes standard on 2500 and 3500 models. For 2013, the Ram is also the first North American pickup truck to offer keyless ignition.
New infotainment systems are available for the RAM 1500 for 2013:
The base U Connect 3.0 (RA1) radio includes an AM/FM radio, Radio Data System (RDS), a monochrome LCD display screen, a 3.5-millimeter auxiliary audio input jack, and a single USB port for charging purposes only.
The "up-level" U Connect 5.0BT (RA2) radio adds a full-color, 5.0-inch color touch-screen display, voice control for phone, a microSD card slot, Bluetooth for phone and A2DP wireless stereo audio streaming capabilities, and vehicle customization options on-screen.
The "top-of-the-line" radios are the U Connect ACCESS 8.4A (RA3) and U Connect ACCESS 8.4AN (RA4). These radios add a full-color, 8.4-inch color touch-screen display, full voice control, SiriusXM satellite radio, the U Connect ACCESS System, featuring roadside assistance and 9-1-1 emergency call buttons on the rear-view mirror, mobile app compatibility, remote USB ports for integration of compatible devices, enhanced in-vehicle customization options, automatic notification of airbag deployment, concierge services, remote control via an app installed on a compatible smartphone, and the ability to add GPS navigation from Garmin for vehicles not equipped with the option from the factory (it is activated by a dealership for a fee, however, does not include SiriusXM Travel Link or 3D mapping). The U Connect ACCESS 8.4AN (RA4) adds GPS navigation from Garmin, HD Radio SiriusXM Travel Link, 3D mapping, and enhanced mobile app compatibility. The system also includes a built-in 3G internet router, allowing for wireless connection to the internet while the vehicle is parked with a monthly service subscription. The system can also be updated to add additional features that will be available in the future via a USB stick inserted into one of the remote USB ports. Remote steering wheel-mounted controls are also included with this system.
Options such as a CD Player (mounted in the center console of the vehicle), SiriusXM satellite radio and a Rearview Backup Camera can be added to any radio.
The 2013 models move up to an 18-inch standard wheel, with 18-inch forged Alcoa wheels as an option. 3500 models offer a High Output package for the diesel. The rear differential ring gear is increased from 11.5 inches, to 11.8 inches on H.O. trucks. The 11.8 axle cover doubles as a heat sink.
Ram, once again, put the Center axle disconnect in 3500 4x4 models. 2500 Ram trucks did not have a CAD system until 2014 models. Ram claims this technology to improve fuel efficiency by 1 MPG, although EPA tests do not include class 2 and class 3 trucks in the MPG/fuel efficiency tests. The 4x4 saw additional changes with the transfer case now being made by BorgWarner instead of New Venture Gear.
High Fuel Efficiency
A new model offered for the 2013 Ram is the HFE (High Fuel Efficiency). Based on the SLT model, the HFE offers 18/25 MPG out of its Pentastar V6 engine and eight-speed Torque-Flite transmission, which has nothing in common with the original Chrysler built TorqueFlite. It is available only in the six-foot bed, two-door, regular cab model with two-wheel-drive only. Standard features include a 220 amp alternator and an 800 amp battery to assist with the Start-stop system. 3.21:1 axle gearing is also standard.
