Default Response to Rusty289 – Sorry everyone esle

Hi Rusty289,


Sorry I couldn’t respond to your PM, I don’t have enough posts to qualify yet.


A nightmare indeed sir. In my case the both front and rear entire axle assemblies were replaced including rotors. I’ve heard from service managers that Chrysler is doing both gears and/or full assemblies depending on parts availability. I have an 8-speed, and no re-programing was involved with the swap, IMO, there to separate entities that have work together. Axle ratio has nothing to do with the transmission output. So I think they are BS’ing you.


Good luck with your truck, mine’s in the shop today getting a new radio.



Got my fingers crossed.


Regards, Hawk

Hey there, read[IMG]file:///C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\c lip_image001.png[/IMG] your post about the issues you have had with your truck. I'm living the same nightmare it seems, only difference is I never took delivery of mine and ended up ordering a 2014 instead.

Wondering if I could ask you a coulpe of questions? Thats one already. Lol

I see you mentioned that they changed your gear ratio, just wondering what the did exactly? Just the ring and pinion or a whole rear/front end swap? Is your truck an 8 speed or a 6? I had an 8 speed ordered, came in with the wrong gear ratio and they tried to do a swap with another truck, front and rear end for 3.92 gears. Long story short they said Chrysler[IMG]file:///C:\Users\Tony\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\c lip_image001.png[/IMG] told them they can't reprogram the 8 speed in the field to accept a different gear ratio.

Just wondering if they are bullsh****ing me or what the deal is. Lol

Thanks for your time
Rusty289

Okay, I get it.

I understand you aren't allowed to PM [initiate] yet due to insufficient post count, but I just find it real strange that you can not reply [conclude] to a PM.

Strange dat' .......

Hey Ramhawk, thanks for the info. That's interesting indeed, somebody is not being completely honest thats for sure.

I'll have to pass that info on to my guy at the dealership, maybe Chrysler just didn't want to bother with a truck that hadn't actually been sold and delivered. Or they were too busy trying to fix all their other screwups. Lol

In the end I'll be further ahead by getting a 2014, but it does kind of bug me that they said they couldn't or wouldn't do it.
