Figuring I have two e-lockers in my Jeep now, I know why! lol

Is there a VIN decoder that will tell what axle ratio is in the truck? Or do I need to crawl down there and check a tag?

Do certain 4.7l trucks come with the lower axle ratio? Is it only with a factory tow package maybe?

Standard was 3.55. 3.21 and 3.92 were options. Majority of the trucks will have 3.55. 4.10 and 4.56 I don't believe you could get from the factory, unless you get an RT then it has 4.10.

Ive had my 09 ram crew cab with the hemi for about 9 months now. When I was going stop light to stop light traffic I got 12 mpg now that Im getting stuck in this metroplex traffic daily here in DFW Im averaging 16mpg because there is highway mixed in. My last road trip from Bedford to Austin I got 20.1mpg. I test drove the 4.7, but found my fully loaded hemi for the same price as the non loaded 4.7 and the hemi had less miles. Keep your eyes open and you can find a good deal on a hemi if you really want it.

Everybody has different experiences with different manufacturers. Some hate ford, some chevy, some dodge, etc... This is the only dodge I've owned, and although it's not the best vehicle I've had, it's probably second, I got alot for the money, and it runs great and is reliable. The best I had was a 1997 s10, ran for 220,000 miles, with practically no repairs other than regular maintenance, and sold it running great. Even the couple times it broke down, I was able to limp it home and fix in my driveway. Only time I had to have it towed was when someone ran me off the road and I hit a curb and broke a wheel bearing and hub. My family used to buy a mix of fords and chevys, we always had trouble with ford, we basically only buy chevy now, always got alot of car for the money. The recent trucks we've bought have all been rams because they are the best for the money, and we've all loved them (been 5 in the family) and haven't really had any issues. When my wife gets a new suv in a few years we may look at dodge as chevy's have been getting more and more expensive. My opinion from just observing other people is that ford and toyota have the most issues in general, after that it's all basically by chance on what's going to happen...
