RAM 2500 Features that Enhance its Towing Capacity

Available Bed Lowering Mode makes all your towing and hauling tasks around Freeburg into light work by dropping the rear suspension of your RAM 2500 by three inches. Not only can this help you load or unload cargo, but it can also help when connecting to a trailer.

If you need to tow using a winch, there’s hardly a better option out there than the 12,000-pound ratedWarn® Zeon-12 Winch. Strong yet lightweight, this winch is the best of both worlds.

Opt for Trailer Camera Wiring and you’ll be able to accommodate not one but two cameras in your RAM 2500. You can strategically position these cameras wherever they’re most useful to you, and the video will feed directly into your Uconnect® touchscreen. That makes them the perfect high-tech complement to your RAM 2500 tow mirrors.
