Finally picked up our new tow rig. 2018 3500 Ram 4X4. Itís the Cummins with Aisini transmission. I canít wait to put a trailer behind it.

Nice! I'm glad they left the grill alone on the 3500s. I'm not a fan of the new style.

Very nice! Your going to love how it pulls. The Cummins with the Aisin behind it is a solid puller!

Nice! Did you get the bed with the gooseneck or 5th wheel hookups from the factory?

Unfortunately not. I bought what was in stock at the dealer. It didnít come with it. From my understanding the prep package doesnít have gooseneck hook ups. The hole is just precut.

Thatís a bummer. I got one in stock and it had that setup and a big plug in the bedside for the trailer to plug into. I better look in that hole before I get a gooseneck

It looks like there is a plate up there, if you want any numbers off of it let me know

Yeah, shoot me a PM when you have time. More than likely Iíll pay someone to install it though.

Looks good. Watch what happens when you push the brake pedal and gas pedal at the same time with those small stock rear tires...haha.

The factory 5th wheel package is okay but I think you're better off without it. Do yourself a favor and get a BW turnover. I have the same truck and that kit is easy to install. That hole visible from the inside is used as a template to drill the hole so it's super easy. Instead of having 5 holes in the bed you only have 1.
