Yup, I did the math, and I pretty much slapped my own face for not thinking it out more clearly.

At most we'd be towing the thing 3 days a year, at most, and really only likely two days. We're...

Howdy!

My name is John, bought a new 2012 Ram 1500 last July after my Dakota finally crapped out. Got the Express with 5.7 Hemi, and (unfortunately) 3.55 gears - I was in a pinch and needed my truck ASAP...

Mine, and all the ones I test drove when I bought it had a slight "knock" to their sound. I just assume it's how hemi's sound, though I can say it wasn't as loud as the OP's video showed.

Thanks Jay, I have one more place I am trying. They are closed until thursday for some reason this week, but I'm going to call them first thing. A few friends recommended them and said they had it...

Do I really need LSD with 4WD? I always put it in 4WD mode when on the ramp.

Been calling around a ton today, and totally getting answers in every different direction. Half of the dealers seemed...

Does using someone other than a dealer void the warranty though?

I'm fine with it costing up to around 2500, but over that, screw it, it's not worth it for towing my boat twice a year. The...

Anyone in the Maryland/southern PA area that has had this done, can you recommend a dealer? All the ones I've talked too seem utterly confused and quoting ridiculous prices, when I keep seeing...

Yeah, I think so too. Love them and the Monterey's of the same class too.

I'm going to do the gear swap. The truck is paid for, I can't justify upgrading to a 2500 for just two trips per year,...

Thanks everyone. Sounds like I want to swap out these gears regardless. It's not like I drive that much anyway, I work from home, so mileage isn't much of an issue.

The Equal-li-zer WD hitch...

That's the thing though, I am only going to be towing it a couple times a year, 40 miles each way. I just wasn't sure of how well it would pull on the rolling hill terrain with the 3.55's, or if it...

Yeah, that is my plan in general, see how it does when I drive it home from the Marina in a couple of weeks.

Should I swap my 3.55 to 3.92 gears?

I have a 2012 Ram 1500 Express, with the 3.55 gears. Towing capacity is 8750 I believe, or thereabouts. Goes up to 10050 or something like that with the 3.92's.

My situation is this - I...
