Just to be clear I have both! Lol I might sell the camper and diesel as a package and buy a smaller lighter camper that the Hemi could pull, but that's a couple of years off.

I have an 09 with the 3.92 gears and I pull a 7200 lb 33 foot bumper pull with about a 750 lb quad in the box. It pulls nice but I would recommend a set of airbags or a timbren kit. I am going to install the timbren kit in the spring as the truck sags pretty bad with all the weight.

I like my cummins, my last one 1995 had 3:5?s pulled great but limited to 65 mph loaded at 23,500# gross,my current ram 1998- -12v has 4:11s no limit on speed with a 35 foot fifthwheel camper at around 14,000#, i ran at both weights with overdrive on [not recomended by the owners manual] but i did it with no problems.

What does it take to swap them out? Time, effort, $$$?

Thanks!

I didn't do this install myself but labor is about half a day. I ordered the parts then found an installer and the total was around $1100-1200 IIRC. The most expensive part was the true trac...$500 or so. You could save a few dollars if you have a different diff in mind. I'm going off memory but my cost estimates should be pretty close.

there is a lot to the install and you want the backlask perfect so the gears don't "whine" when you drive. you can prob Google the install procedures but if you haven't done it before I'd suggest getting someone who has to at least "help" you.

Is your truck 4x4? If so, that is a great price to get gears for both axles, a tru-trac and installation for $1200. What kind of gears did you use?

I'm 2wd and used G2 gears. The truetrac is what drove the price up the most but worth every penny. I then capped it all off with a mag hytec diff cover...it holds just over 4 qts now!
