While the massive size of a 1-ton dualie doesn’t make the best trail vehicle, the Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn Crew Cab 4x4 had a quiet cab and a firm but not harsh ride. Just because it has dual rear wheels doesn’t make it a 4WD. Anyone who has driven a dualie knows that dual rear wheels don’t help all that much for traction—they are there mainly for stability and load carrying. We were glad our vehicle had a transfer case and a driven front axle when we got stuck trying to turn around in the snow. By the way, keep in mind that the turning circle is over 47 feet.
