2008 Dodge Ram 3500 - Hearty Hauler

A Custom Dodge to Tow a Custom Chevy

When we have a custom-built show truck that we haul from show to show, we want a cool tow rig for it. At least that is what Joel Jurado of Lovington, New Mexico, believes. Hauling his 'bagged '88-'98 Chevy dualie from show to show with a standard daily just wouldn't do. Joel went ahead and took a perfectly good 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 and made it even better. Adding Michigan Metal Works arms, Slam Specialties RE-8 'bags, and an Nfamous wishboned two-link brought the dualie down to kiss the ground. A full array of H&S performance parts and a straight pipe exhaust ensure the 6.7L Cummins has enough power to haul his double-axle hauler and Chevy 3500 to any show he wants. Joel could finally haul his show truck all over the Southwest in style.
