Ram Ponies Up With Upscale 2019 Chassis Cabs: Video

In the world of big-truck towing, the equestrian community uses some of the biggest trailers around, logging thousands of miles each year traveling from event to event. Many horse owners have one-ton pickup trucks with the requisite maximum-towing turbo-diesel under the hood. However, others customize medium-duty 4500 and 5500 chassis cabs to provide more just-in-case capability when towing double- and triple-axle livestock trailers. Now Ram is targeting that demographic with its all-new 2019 medium-duty chassis-cab lineup.

Once the go-to truck of the commercial market, chassis cabs are becoming more upscale as manufacturers take the best technology from their three-quarter-ton and one-ton pickups and put them into these bigger, work-oriented trucks. Manufacturers are doing this to improve their offerings, target new buyers and reduce investment costs. We're guessing many medium-duty buyers will benefit from having a plush cargo hauler that is most likely carrying costly and important cargo.

The all-new 2019 Ram HD chassis cabs have an impressive bed from CM Truck Bed — complete with a spray-on liner, hidden storage lockers and a gooseneck cutout — set up to tow a top-of-the-line horse trailer. Head of Ram Brand North America Jim Morrison is an enthusiast who owns a few horses for fun and sport. So maybe it's not surprising that he pushed to create a well-featured chassis cab that provides a luxurious cabin for long-haul adventures to horse shows or a mountain trailhead.

Do you want to have a normal conversation or do you want to be snarky. Your decision.

From no less than the King of Snark himself

Papajim Yes I can do it when needed. But that said I put up with your snarky for a long time before I came back at you. As I said earlier this has been and will be your decision.

JTT really wants to have the "last word" --- can you tell? He gets really fussy about it. Don't you?

Papajim as usual change the subject.

@tntonline. I do not see a problem with me using Frank in Florida as at one time I used that name. That said I have used no other names.
