Mine has the 8 speed with 3.21 with anti spin. I dont tow anything and it blows away most cars at the light and gets better mileage than my old 03 dakota 6 cylinder.

I went from a 3.42 5 spd to a 3.55 8 spd. Mileage is exactly the same. It does only have 1k miles on it though, so the jury is still out.

Mine is a 6-speed 3.55 limited slip diff....I'm impressed on the gas mileage but not off the line...expected to be able to burn it up whenever I wanted. The question is --- Should I be able to burn the rear end with this setup????

I have 3.92's with the 8 speed. I am amazed by the power and smoothness of the combination.

Hemi, 8 speed, 3.55 with LSD. Ordered it this way.

I don't need the 3.92s (no trailer towing), and I test drove a early production Hemi/8 speed/3.21 combination which seemed somewhat sluggish. After the test drive I actually checked to make sure it had the Hemi engine as I was surprised how lethargic it was.

I got the 3.55 with the 8 speed only because I could not order the Limited with 3.92

I'm surprised how much the gear ratios have changed with Chrysler. When the Limiteds first came up for order, we were able to add 3.92's. When I ordered mine it wasn't available. I had to go with the 3.55 at that point.

does any one have a hard down shift with the 392's gear? Seems like it down shits a little on the hard side coming to a stop.
