Only way I'd take a truck home with 3.21s is if I never pulled anything. The tow rating is ridiculously low on the 3.21s... something like 6700 lbs. The 3.92s take (me) to 10,100 lbs. Really stupid that they don't have something in between. Sometimes it makes you wonder.
The tow rating is something I had pointed out to the dealer. It's 8,350 lbs vs 6,300 lbs on my trim level going from a 3.55 to a 3.21. That's a big difference.

If it were me, I would refuse the truck. My trailer (loaded) weighs in the neighborhood of 6000 (and it's all aluminum). If you never plan on pulling anything, and you live where it's flat, you'll be fine.

Getting the Crewcab 4x4 shortbed, got good price for my trade in. Listed for 48000(Canada)and change. After all the dickering thats what I got it for.
Now lets see if they offer me a good price for the extended warranty.

Dealer called. New truck is in. I have to wait though. There's some problem with the bank regarding the swapping of trucks and my loan.

Don't despair about the rear. With that new 8 speed, you may find you like the advantages of the 3.21 rear. Besides, the difference in real world terms between a 3.21 and a 3.55 are very, very small. Perhaps that is why Ram stopped sourcing the 3.55 as it was in many ways simply redundant to the 3.21.

Great looking ride!~
