Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 Diesel Towing Fifth Wheel Trailer


Hi I am looking for a way to increase the payload in my 2017 Ram 2500. We are purchasing a larger Fifth Wheel in the Pin Weight is about 70lbs more than our payload. Any thoughts are products that would work? Thanks

While nothing we offer is designed to increase the towing capacity of a vehicle I think you might actually be fine to tow your fifth wheel trailer. Typically payload refers to the amount of weight the bed of a truck can handle whereas pin weight of a fifth wheel trailer is not limited by this as it attaches directly to the truck frame and the payload is the capacity of the truck bed's sheet metal.

For suspension enhancement for your 2017 Ram 2500 we have the Firestone kit part # F2706 which will give you additional support that will help improve your towing experience. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.
