When the Dodge Ram Mega Cab hit the market in late 2007 it was all about more, isn’t it always when anything new hits the market ?
The 2008 Mega Cab offered more space, more comfort and more practicality setting new standards in the ‘room with a view’ pick up market.
Mega Cab featured the largest ever cab with 143 cubic feet of interior space, room for six which included reclining seats for passengers in the back.
This particular model is powered by a 350 hp 6.7 litre / 408 cui straight six Cummins turbo diesel motor which can deliver class leading 650lb/ft torque.
Payload capacity for the Mega Cab was given as 3,150 lbs, that’s a little more than what a first generation generation Ford Thunderbird would weigh.
The emissions system of the Cummins diesel is Government certified 120,000 miles, that’s about 10 years for the average British motorist.
Unique features to the 2008 Larimie Spec Mega Cab include Dual Zone Climate Control, steering wheel mounted audio controls security alarm and Sentry Key® engine immobiliser.
Towing capacity for the 2008 3500 version of the Mega Cab is 16,000 lbs to give a gross combined weight rating of 24,000 lbs which was up 1000lbs from the 2007 model.
