Yes you should get what you're promised, but y'all need to realize that the final drive ratio on an 8 speed ram with 3.21 diff in 1st gear is 15.12:1. With a 4.10 and the 6 speed tranny its 12.3:1. I think a lot of the hate for the 3.21s is fed by those with the 6 speed where the 3.92 diff made a big difference, but the bottom line is that if a 6 speed truck with 3.92s was good enough for you, an 8 speed with 3.21s will actually be an improvement. Now you do get an 18.46:1 1st gear final drive ratio with an 8 speed and 3.92s, but the point of the post is to demonstrate the adequacy of the 3.21 with the 8 speed.
