We have much the same truck, but with the aisin trans.
Wife calls it her caddy!!
Absolutely love the truck, it took a while to find all the goodies it has.
Had it since new...now has 40K mostly towing out 14K# 5er.
Had a local company replace the stock fuel tank with a 52 gallon.

    "Surprised that the 68RFE has a higher payload and tow arting than the Aisin."

    Bottom line go by RAWR as in tire ratings. AISIN simply weighs more and it is a more capable trans as it's used in many MD applications. The 68 is a good trans also! Look at the comparison of the trans in the DRW application.

    Stick to quality filters!!!!!!! MOPAR, FleetGuard and RACOR.

    Payload is 4,480 lbs. Camper weighs 3017 "wet" as weighed from the factory, so once loaded up we should be right at or just under GVWR. Surprised that the 68RFE has a higher payload and tow arting than the Aisin.

    Also interesting how the GVWR magically jumps up 900 lbs with the Cummins to keep the payload ratings the same.

    The reason for that is the Aisin weighs more. Your sticker is about $7,000 less than our 2016 DRW Aisin 3500.

    Don't you have a longbed? The 4,480 rating is for the shortbed. I think you might have more payload, at least according to that chart.



    The chart he posted is for the long box. The short box for basic truck is 4070 for the 68RFE. Being a Laramie, buckets, etc etc. his will NOT be the 4480 in the chart.

    Chart for my 4x4 SB CC Aisin/HO is 4020. It is a Laramie, buckets, etc etc, door sticker is 3664. That is why I said his door jam number will be around 4K +/-. Chris

    If it had came with factory side steps that number would have been lower.

    Yea, our 2016 Laramie 3500 DRW lost 269# from base as it has 5er prep, side steps and a sun/moon roof.
