so i need to check out this new 2014 2500 6.4 Hemi, this thread is the first i have heard of this truck. I guess I need to do some more research.
So if i go with 1500 make sure i get 3.92 gears? I understand higher ratio equals less gas mileage but it can't be any worse than my 02 1500 5.9 magnum. I am currently getting 9.7 mpg all around...LOL
Yes, the 2500 with the 6.4 is definitely worth looking into. There has been a few threads on the forum talking about it already. You could use the search engine to find those.
In a 1500 I would definitely recommend 3.92 gears no matter what.... but for towing you will definitely want them. The 3.92's have the 10,000+ pound tow rating. 3.92's will give you slightly less fuel economy than 3.55's, but it will be very minimal. Definitely a lot better than your 5.9!
