Any new news on this?

I can't honestly believe some of you guys, Dodge is trying to stiff you and you have a guy ready to help you with it via a Class action lawsuit and you don't want to take him up on it???

Personally, the more we as "The general public" let companies/corps away with this non-sense, the worse it is going to get!

This is JMO of course, but if my new truck comes in with anything other than what I ordered and Dodge refuses to do anything about it, Judd will be getting a PM quicker than I can leave my dealership, you can bet on that.

Hey, yes.
Dodge called me with an offer to make up for this "misunderstanding"
They gave me a 5 years 100miles bumper to bumper Mopar coverage.. Forgot the name of it... pretty nice, rental car coverage, hotel, towing, etc, etc.... I think is worth $600
So, I took it, and called it good.

If I towed regularly, I'd be pretty pissed that my truck can't haul what I thought it was going to. Anyways, if your order sheet shows 3.55 and your window sticker does too, Chrysler will replace the gears. They offered to do mine, but I turned it down because I want the gas mileage.
Replace my gears at a dealership who could not even transfer a Bed cover over on the new truck from the trade in truck? Do you get the point as to what my NEW truck would be like next 7 years after these so-called pros replace gears???? My sticker and sales person claimed I bought a 355 gear and pull my camper up to 8400 lbs!!! My gear is a 321 and 6800 Lbs. I want a new truck not tore apart that I bought!

Here is a bit of a reverse question. I bought an Outdoorsman with the Hemi and 8 speed. My window sticker only notes 3.21 under the standard equipment heading. When I looked at the site where you input your VIN, it reported I have 3.92 and can tow more than 10K pounds.

Nowhere is the 3.92 noted on the window sticker. Is it automatically upgraded in the Outdoorsman (26T) package? That does include the anti-spin diff. I wish I had thought to look for the axle sticker while I was crawling around under it last night putting on side steps.

I also seem to have the 32 gallon tank as my first fill-up took 28.5 gallons - that is also not noted anywhere.

I'm mainly curious as I don't tow anyway, and hopefully won't go out and buy a giant camper if I find I can pull it.

Well I had seen a lot of people who got the wrong gears and thought I might as well check mine. We clearly asked for 3.55, NOPE 3.21. When I built my truck they said 3.55 was standard and 3.92 was an option. Also the window sticker said 3.55.
