Default Why the 3.42 gears

Everyone I speak with that tows a boat, trailer etc, says get the 3.73 or 4.10 ratio. Everyone on this forum states the same thing, Guys who work on truck say the same. Then why do Ram only offer a 3.42. And you can get the 4.10 with ONLY the 3500 with DRW? Is it more expensive for the 4.10? Is it easy to order one with 4.10 , as they are made on the assembly line and just stick in a 4.10 every 3rd or 4th truck made? I could be off but I think since the truck/car companies are under so much pressure from EPA etc and having to increase mileage they are forced to put this lower gear ratio in. Can I special order a 4.10 in a 2500 or do I have to do it after market for $1500-$2k?
