Well, it looks like I have 3.21 gears. I have been quoted 1,250 up to 1,500$ to regear to 3.92, seems rather steep to me. Which has got me thinking about just going to a junkyard and getting the VIN off of a truck and looking up which ratio it went with. If it has low enough mileage just service the rear end and swap them out. Do you guys think it would an ok route, the yard rear end is 185$. So I would be saving around 1,000$ or more.

That seems like a really good deal. I'd go for it.

I am currently trying to find a person that ordered 3.55 gears but received 3.21 gears (effectively reducing your towing capacity by around 2,000 pounds) that lives in Missouri. I need someone willing to be a class representative in a class-action lawsuit to get this matter resolved. I have this problem with my truck, but obviously cannot be the attorney that files the lawsuit AND the class representative. Send me a private message with your phone number if you meet the criteria and are willing to answer interrogatories and do a deposition on the matter. The class representative generally receives compensation greater than the rest of the claimants for their time and energy spent in serving.

I have a 2010 sport 4WD. I believe sports are geared differently but i do know my pickup does not like towing. Planning on upgrading to a diesel soon. Anyways, does anyone know what my pickup has in it for gears and how much does it cost to regear it?

most likely 3.55 maybe 3.92. Rare choice is 3.21.

Your build sheet will tell you. It has nothing to do with sport model, just depends what they ordered. 3.55 is standard. Only the RT has "special" gearing, which is 4.10.

I have the 3.92's and once I increased the tire size, I wish I could have inexpensively changed my gear ratio front and rear to the neighborhood of 4.56. I tow about 30% of the time. Stock tire size and 3.92 is the minimum ratio I feel for any truck of this class/weight if you tow. I do not need to go down the highway at 1600 rpm. In fact I feel that too low of a ratio combined with this much weight actually hurts economy. Not fun to constantly hunt between 5th and 4th up average hills @ 65-70 mph.

rsg, 1600 rpm on the highway is surely in 6th gear. You should use tow/haul. You must not be using tow/haul if you're at 1600rpm anywhere around 65/70mph.

I don't tow nearly as much or as heavy as I used to so the new half ton was my choice. Mine does have the 3.92 ratio and I think it really helps the engine stay in MDS mode. Mine is 2wd but my cousin has a 10 sport 4x4(3.92) and my best friend has a 13 4x4(3.55). The 3.55 truck gets consistently worse fuel economy on the highway. I told my buddy to watch for his eco light and he commented that with the cruise set at highway speed it rarely comes on and usually only down hills. My truck and my cousins 10 ram cruise comfortable at 70-73 mph with the ECO light on all the time and MDS activated unless it is into a healthy head wind or going up a grade.

Ryan gets around 18 highway best with the 13 and Drew and I consistently see over 20 as long as it isn't windy. The 4x4 isn't really a factor as my 10 and Drew's 10 see very similar highway numbers.

Not to mention, the 13 with 3.55s is a pooch compared to the 3.92 trucks.

Towing these days usually consists of either my boat (about 3400 lbs with trailer and fuel) or my car (about 6000 lbs with trailer and car). The truck will motor right down the highway in overdrive lock up only downshifting for steeper than normal grades.

I think the 3.92 is the best all around choice for these trucks. With the advent of the variable valve timing moving more and more torque down low at cruise rpms we don't have to hunt around for gears as much as gassers of 10-12 years ago.
