I thought about that smokesxt. I've had a few 4 door hemi RAMs with 4 X 4 over the years and loved them. Wouldn't have any other truck. My concern is the lack of weight in the rear makes it easier to slide although I've put logs in the bed for added weight before. The problem there is if you start sliding the extra weight propels you more.

But I do love a RAM. You've given me something more to consider.

A few sandbags solves the weight issue. Likewise, if the roads are bad enough you are sliding, you should be in 4wd, so the lack of rear weight isn't an issue.
The added weight helps in the snow as it aids in giving more traction.

You would be quite surprised if you actually looked up the weights of the vehicles you're considering. They are all firmly in the 4500-5500lb range, including the Ram.
