Tough Dog RAM 1500 DS 3889kg GVM UPGRADE


With a standard GVM of 3450kg, the DS-series Ram 1500 offers a payload that ranges from 820 to 845 kilograms.

Once the Tough Dog 2889kg GVM upgrade is applied however, that payload effectively grows to 1169kg – 1194kg.

Replacing suspension components, the GVM upgrade comes from increasing the front and rear axle load limits, and testing the upgrades through Finite Element Analysis, brake testing and stability control calibration testing. 

The towing capacity of 3500kg or 4500kg, and the Gross Combination Mass of 7237kg remain unchanged.

The upgrade comes with an unlimited-kilometre warranty, capped at four years for recreational users and three years for commercial users.
