So what do you do when you get your hands on the one of the biggest, baddest tow rigs on the planet? Well, you hitch up a trailer and toss on the biggest, baddest, heaviest, truck you got in the fleet. For us that meant loading our Carson 14,000-pound trailer with our long term '12 Pickup Truck of the Year winner, the 3/4-ton Ram 2500 Crew Cab Power Wagon.
With an estimated combined weight of 10,126 pounds, our towed trailer and 3/4-ton truck didn't even make the Long-Hauler breathe hard. Most of the time you couldn't even tell the trailer was back there. For this reason the Long-Hauler would probably be much better suited for towed loads in the neighborhood of 15,000-25,000 pounds plus, well into Class A license territory. Keep your eyes peeled for a closer look at what makes the Ram Long-Hauler concept truck tick along with a few surprising specs in an upcoming issue of Four Wheeler.
