My insurance company (state farm) said the same thing. Weird...these are the numbers. I have triple checked on the truck against the docs.

I am not stuck on the idea that every drive is the same. In fact, that is the problem. In order to compare fuel economy, you have to have identical drives, drivers, etc. and only change rear gear...

I had a dealer tell me that KBB trade in values are actually retail values. Who knows if it's true or not. I told him that is all I had access to and that is what I went by. I confirmed his position...

So under your theory Ram put in a 3.21 for what reason? Maybe Ram got it wrong...perhaps they should be putting in 4.56 or 5.10 gears for improved fuel economy...lol.


And as far as load, the...

We know the 3.92 will accelerate faster...no argument. We are talking fuel economy and the 3.21 will fire the cyclinders on average 400 times less per minute...that means less fuel. It's obvious why...

You and I will disagree on this point...I believe engine speed does equal fuel consumption. If you are firing the cylinders 400 more times per minute, that is 400 more times you need to put fuel in...

Perhaps I am incorrect...please explain???

I am looking at the attached jpeg I got on this forum. You will notice at 1500 RPM the 3.21 is going almost 69 mph and the 3.92 is going 56. Assume I hit...

I like it when there is a mix of driving conditions...just as others have suggested. Personally, I prefer it over the 4WD setting 90% of the time. No need to burn up gas in 4WD unless absolutely...

You will be happy with the 3.21 unless your towing more than 8000 pounds regularly. And if you are...might as well get the 2500. The idea that you need 3.92s to avoid sluggishness is a joke. The 3.21...

Your money but ask yourself how many times you push it to the floor. My point is this....if you need more power, step on the gas. A stock hemi truck will smoke the rear tires off the truck. If you...

I would not change the tire diameter unless you have the 3.92 rear end. You will most certainly lose fuel economy....not sure how much though.

Probably depends on how you will use the truck. My opinion is that the 5.7, as configured in the 1500s, is perhaps not the perfect truck engine for heavy use. I had a 2005 and now have a 2014. I love...
