Well I went a diffrent route and should be picking up my 09 Hemi with 3.92 gears in the morning. I figure the 9K tow rating will be enough for me now and in the future. The ride was 500 times better than the 2500 and the crew cab is oh so sweet.

Wade if you want to know about the 2500 give Tbone or I a call.

My dad's has 3:92 gears and the milage sucks. Go with the 3:55 if they still offer it. It won't affect the towing/

Congrats on the new rig. Did you get 4x4?

You have to have the right setup and you have to talk to restaurants and ask if you can have their used oil. Asian restaurants have the best oil.

no 4x4 The 3.55 has a tow rating of 6800 i think and the 3.92 is 8600. If I was worried about gas i would buy a prius
