Default 2012 Rams, what is known?

Being as the 2012 Rams are starting to show up on the dealership sales lots

I thought a post should be started about changes that we know about

We know about the different transmission, six-speed automatic with electronic range select and a new, more efficient torque converter, The 545RFE software is updated and becomes the 65RFE (allowing manual access to the “secondary second gear”).

http://www.allpar.com/news/index.php...lease-ram-1500
http://www.allpar.com/model/ram/2009-ram.html includes some 2012 changes
I think there are a few mistakes in the above websites, maybe 1 rear end ratio change, not a 3.92 but a 3.99 instead like in the Tradesman ( Adventurer .
Buyers can also choose a 3.21 or a 3.99 ratio if they so desire.


The new steering wheel includes integrated cruise control buttons, which were previously mounted on a steering column stalk. They join the trip computer and UConnect phone controls used to check vehicle performance and manage hands free Bluetooth calls. Audio volume buttons are still mounted on the backside of the wheel.

this may or may not still be in the plans for 2012

Rams now have a proprietary ZF axle which weighs around a third less than comparable axles.
this axle has been used in the larger Jeeps for the last year or two

i'm sure you could but i think most would agree that your money would be better spent on a locker from Detroit, etc.

Yeah you are probably right i was just thinking if i could walk into the dealer and get them to intall the carrier my warranty wouldn't be affected. I will probably wait then get a locker after warranty expires
