2011 comparison question
hello everyone. can anyone tell me the differences in the 2011 express, and the 2011 tradesman? all ive been able to see looking at the trucks at a dealer , is the wheel/tire sizes were different. i test drove an express in august, and just found an identicle tradesman yesterday, the interiors were the exact same. all i saw different was the tire size and the price. thanks. im trying to decide which one to get.

Tradesman Ram are more of a Fleet Company truck, something like the pickups that Auto Parts delivery places use, likely with the cheapy 130 RES radio, no uconnect hands free module or much of anything else. It likely has the cheapy instrument panel & most times no full floor console. It likely also comes with 3.21 or 3.55 rear end & 17" tires

The Express is more for the first time New vehicle buyer, pleasing to the eye & supposedly ready to customize
its more likely to have a
3.92 rear end
430 RBZ or 430 REN radio, possibly a 730 RER radio
floor console
better instrument panel ( all gauges, no idiot lights )
hands free devise for cell phone use all installed & operating
20" tires

personally the list that i posted for the Express are a MUST, if its a standard cab then you wouldn't want a floor console

the radio code is located on the radio face, lower right hand corner
( don't get the RES radio, you won't be a happy camper )

GT you're partially correct. The difference between the tradesman and the express is the body color bumpers, 20" wheels, and dual exhaust as mentioned before. However where you got off GT is that you can only get the 130 radio on the express, none of the other radios are options. Also you can't get the buckets in the express, only bench in either cloth or vinyl. Also it comes standard with the regular gauge package and you can upgrade to the gauge package with evic. Uconnect and cruise control are optional too
