There is a reason why You hear of people changing out their 3:55 gears to 3:92s. You will like the Ram with 3:92s as I do. I had a Ram with 3:55 gears and hated that gear set.

My 1st Ram was 2010, Hemi, 4x4 club cab. 2nd Ram 2011, same truck with 3:92 gears. I agree on using tow haul. May even want to pull in a lower gear. That will help with the transmission hunting.

Arth, very good point. My 2010 had 3:55s, hated the truck. 2011 has 3:92s, really enjoy this Ram. 3:55s don't belong in a 4x4 Ram.

I would not pull a travel trailer with 3:55 gears. You will not be able to hold a gear. TC will go in and out of lock up and so on.

Don't know what your towing? 14/15 mpg while towing seems high. I have pulled my 4,500 pound boat over 7,000 miles. I have never seen 12. I am anywhere from 9 to 10.5 with 392 gears.
