Good Luck! We actually ordered a 2013 February 6 of 2013 but that never happened because they would not build the R/T with the eight-speed. We had to wait until the 2014 was available and then try...

The R/T has not been replaced. I believe that is a mistake on the build and price unless there is some unknown reason. Although it does not show the R/T, if you order a regular cab 2 wheel drive...

We have the XZNP Raised Ride Height code on a 2014 R/T build sheet so that does not compare with the four-door or 4 wheel drive trucks mentioned. What could that mean on a two door 6.4 bed truck?

The 2014 Ram R/T has only has 3.92:1 rear axle ratio. The 4.10:1 is no longer used. This was to increase fuel mileage and also not needed due to the lower gear of the eight-speed ZF transmission.

R/T gears

According to what i have the 3.92:1 is standard with the 2014 R/T. I think this change is due to the improvement of fuel mileage. It is also because the ZF transmission has a 4.71:1 low gear which...
