The older ones do. New Rams come with the 6.7 cummins which is an upgraded 5.9. Both "B" engine family.

Re: Camping setup tips

Camp in your back yard for a couple of days and nights first. If you want a very simple and roomy tent have a look at the OZtrail Tourer 9 plus canvas tent. ( $449.00 ) at Tentworld. You can pitch it in less than 4 minutes from the time you pull it out of the back of the ute (in windy conditions). c...

Now that is a pretty slick solution to what a lot of folk have struggled with. I can imagine you with an old cut down m12 tool battery receiver bolted to your ute so you can just do a battery swap.
