LOL, nothing else will seem fast if you ride rockets! 3.92's are the max for my daily driver as I commute back in forth from Louisiana to Houston, TX (640 miles rountrip) twice a week...4.56 gears are for quarter mile/hopping around town type rides, not daily driving/commuting to work rides! Whatever your poison, as long as you have fun doing it right!

Afraid it's splitting hairs, if I had known then what I know now I would have probably gone for the LSD and the 3.92's but having gone through my first winter and not having any issues with travel, my main reason for going with 4X4, I'm not unhappy with the 3.55's.

You misinterpreted the primary reason for the difference in fuel mileage. It wasnt the 3.55 vs 3.92 it was the 20's vs 17's.

Great. Now I need to cancel my order and get the 3:92's and wait another 6 months. Damn.

Bought my 09 used, and I (stupidly) assumed that all the new sport trimmed hemi rams came with 3:92 and LSD. Man did I feel like an idiot when I realized it was a 3:55 one wheel wonder!

Not only does the traction and take off suck, but I don't even get very good MPG! I've been averaging around 8 MPG around town, and around 12-13 highway!

...I say DEFINATELY go with the 3:92!
