The biggest problem with the Ram 3/4 ton was the rear spring suspension which wasn’t strong enough for the task.”
I believe his rig had the coil springs in the rear, which are not available on 1Ts. Many have gone that route with the notion of more “off road flexing” but quickly discover that their load is better suited to traditional leaf springs. Not saying that coils won’t work in any situation...but plenty of stories surrounding the Dodge coils and heavy loads in the rear. Note: I’m not a Dodge Ram hater; I owned one for 21 years and still miss it.
Edit: re-read a portion of the build. There is no mention of coil springs involved in his decision to sell the Ram. My comments are solely based on conversations with others and not with Dave.
