    You know, I have noticed, you like to tell everyone how much you know, and talk about how much you did or spent. If you are going to be condescending then why even pose the question? So, you want to feel like "you're the man." I have known people like you, and most, I would rather have an enigma than stack-up with those types directly behind me. You, sir, are the ever elusive blue falcon, and enjoy baiting folks so you can proudly sore. I'll give you this for free; change our attitude, treat folks with respect and kindness, until it is time not to, and give more than you take. Look for ways to help others, be charitable, honorable, valiant, and honest in your dealings, and for goodness sake, if you must sore blue falcon, do it somewhere else. These men were only answering your question. If you do not like their responses, then do not be the falcon.

    I had this happen once a Durango my sister had it fixed and they couldn’t figure out why when you put into 4WD the thing would go crazy. I bought a new axle assembly from a junk yard that matched the other axle and what do you know 4WD worked great. That is the weirdest feeling when the two axles done match on gear ratio.

    Do you have dial transmission (8 speed) or shifter on the column/console (6 speed)?

    THAT is the question here. No one is denying the fact that you CAN get the hemi with 3.55's, just not the hemi/8 speed/3.55's. Going to have to guess he has the 6 speed, and if not then maybe we found one!

    Yeah that was super random, who is he talking to?

    Dumb question..... Do you know it’s wrong based on the window sticker or have they pulled the actual vehicle build off of the vin lookup? Window stickers can actually be printed incorrectly.

    On delivery day I was given a booklet of 4-5 pages with every detail/option from my build and I noticed it said 3.21 and the manager said it’s probably just a typo so I called fca customer service to verify with vin# and they said 3.21 too.

    I’d see if the dealership would be willing to swap in the 3.92’s to make it as close as possible to what was ordered. JMHO

    Problem with swapping them is the 'official' approved tow rating will still be what it was for the 3.21's. Not a problem if the OP doesn't plan on towing much weight but there could be issues down the road on resale if the next owner wants to tow a 9000lb trailer and they can't legally do it
