Thumbs up Dodge resolution on axle ratio

Dodge is buying my 2014 truck with an MSRP to MSRP swap for a 2015 Hemi Big Horn. The Hemi has 3.21 gears, but can tow 8000 lbs. They will pay all costs and no mileage deduction. I only pay the difference between a 2014 V6 and a 2015 Hemi V8, about $2800. One thing that is IMPORTANT! Call Dodge yourself and keep the dealer out of it. Dodge gave me about a $1200 break from what the dealer would do. They also said I could have this deal at any dealer, just let them know.

Anyone having an axle ratio problem should deal directly with Ram. Dealers will try to get mileage charges and depreciation. Ram has to be called every other day as they are slow at everything, but keep at it. After the deal was done I had to sign a non-disclosure statement so Ram looks blameless. Fight for an MSRP to MSRP swap with new accessories rather that moving them.

I only know that the 2013 and 2014 models were the ones having the problem. Mine had a window sticker that said the 3.55 was an option I paid for,but wasn't the fact.

Sounds like they are taking care of you. There was a guy on cumminsforum that ordered a 4x4 dually and when it was delivered it had the correct gear in one diff and a different ratio in the other.

This is a known issue on late '13 early '14 MY Rams. I think there was a shortage of 3.55 at the end of the '13 production, so Ram decided to put 3.21 in its place. With the 8 speed transmission, the 3.55 gear ratio has been pretty much eliminated in most 1500 applications from '14 on.

Glad Ram took care of it for you.
