Default confused with the 09 2500

So heres the scoop (first post by the way) I have. Nice 2008 1500 4x4 quad cab that i handed down to my son about a month ago. I found a 2009 2500 4x4 sxt with 23500 miles on it. Its like brand new. So i picked it up for a solid deal.

Now heres the question at hand. It was manufactured in 11 of 08. But they sold it as a 2009. Its the same body style as my 08. Quad cab and all. Both are 5.7 hemis. 08 has the 345 hp. What does the 09 have? The 345 or the 390. Cause its a beast if you get on it. Btw i drive it like an old man.

Cant seem to find a good answer anywhere. Anyone know ?

The 09 trucks started rolling out in mid 08. What you have failed to realize is that the HD trucks are a model year behind on the refresh. So your 2500 is still a third gen truck. Also, though the 5.7 is the same base engine in the 1500-2500, the tuning on the HD trucks is quite different. They are tuned for a lot more low end torque.


BTW, Welcome to the forum!

Yes, but i believe the hemi on the 2500 does not have MDS, that could be the difference

Correct, it's a Vin D motor, with no MDS. EZA is the code. You have a tougher transmission than your son. I heard 355hp and 395tq are the ratings at the crank, so a little improvement over an 08 1500.
