Is this a Ram 1500 Tradesman you looking at?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
it is. Need it to tow a 5x8 trailer on a daily basis, not a heavy trailer, not a loaded down one either.
Dodge Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Overall the 2013 Ram 1500 hundred with the 4.7 come in as a great truck with no reported issue and should have no issue with your small trailer as well. That being said I would still recommend you take the truck in to a trusted Shop and have them perform a top to bottom pre-purchase inspection just to be sure there are no hidden issues. I have enclosed the reliability report in the link below for this truck as well. Come in as well clean with no issues. Have a look and post back if you have more questions and or need more help with this .

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
