Maybe I should go to 22" wheels. I think that they would look better than the stock 19.5". Here is a lowered 350 on 22's.

OK, so far I think that OSO and SummerObsession have the biggest and baddest rigs!

22's are bad because they are like 9-10"s wide, means some tubs, unless you run the 22.5's turned down to 22's, also on those, you will have to run adapters, unles they come from app, factory 8 lug bolt pattern and like a 3600 # per wheel weight ratio. They do make a 19", just no tow cap. as for the f250, 350, etc, the make a lowing kit to replace the I-beams, keep the factory springs in front and a lower shackle/ front spring hanger for the ford fans, works great with tow bags.

You are right. I would have to use the adapters to convert my factory 19.5" bolt pattern to the larger pattern for the larger wheels. The 22's pictured are actually 22.5" wheels converted to 22". One good thing is that it might be easier to find tires for the 22's than for the factory 19.5's. The only problem may be finding the high load capacities in 22". Anyhow, here are a few links with big wheels and conversion packages for dualies.

I want to thank everyone that responded to this thread. You all played a major part in my decision on what to buy.
I ended up with a:
Dodge Ram 3500 4X4 SLT Quad Cab Dually
with the 5.9L High Output Cummins Diesel
305 HP/ 555 pound-feet of torque Towing Cap 16,300lbs
4 Speed Automatic, 48RE
Now I have a place to store the kids!
This shouldn't have any trouble towing my 2800 pound 28' Checkmate...

New style cap. Dealer found that the windows weren't torqued to spec. Hopefully it has solved the water issue.

sharkey...Good looking truck. Shouldn't have any trouble towing that's for sure.

What model Leer is that and how much did they charge you? It looks like the 100XQ. It just so happens that I'm a Leer dealer. Just want to make sure they didn't stick it in ya.
