I don't think you'll even notice 3K lbs behind you
That was a smoking hot deal on that truck.
Enigmatic VIN results r/t rear end gear ratio
Looking up my VIN on a link obtained at "DodgeForum.com" as opposed to a Chrysler site (that seemed impressively official) gives me 3.21 on the former and a 3.92 on the latter. I can't seem to make any links from this forum work and was wondering if there are any visible differences between the two. I am towing a tandem axle trailer, electric brakes, and a weight around 5500-6000lbs wet n loaded.
The higher ratio will have me right at limits while the lower ratio gives (a little) margin.
This is the site I used. Not sure if its official or not. FCA US LLC Launch Page
Also keeping in mind that im a noob here asking for opinions in another section....
Is the tag on the axle gone?

Here is my window sticker. What am I missing? I don't see anywhere where it tells me my gear ratio.....
Thanks. But where did you find that? OR is 3.21's the standard and it only shows up if there is a different ratio?
That's usually the case.
. but its not over yet, we are at 4 pages and counting.
