Anyone know what gear ratio was put in Dodges with the towing/camper package from the factory?
I'm guessing 4:10s.
Whatever the truck was ordered with. Mine came with 3:54's
I'm pretty sure the towing package included options that did not include a steeper gear, such as tranny cooler and wiring for the bolt on receiver hitch. My truck was manufactured with the towing option, but the gearsets were yet another option.
So just because a truck was manufactured with the "towing package" or "heavy duty service group" doesn't mean it has steep gears.
When I ordered my truck in 98, I had to order the 3.92's seperate form my tow package. It wasn't included.
I believe 4.10's were only offered in 1500's from the factory in the Offroad package.
Thanks for the info guys.
1500's came std with 3.55 with 3.92's as an option. 4.10's were in the off raod only.
2500's came with either 3.55's or 4.10's
Ok, I was looking at a Ram with the towing package and wasn't certain if that affected the gear ratio at all. If it had come with 4.10's then i could have slapped on a lift and tires without having to worry about gears for the time being.
OK, i'm still new at understanding all this gear talk. So whats the difference between all these gears you guys listed, and what are the advantages and disadvatages for each?
And help is appreciated.
This topic should give you a better idea of what gear ratios do.
I'm pretty sure you had to specify you wanted the 4.10's with the tow package and pay extra for it.
My Ram 2500 with the towing package came with 4.10's. :bigthumb:
the tow package does NOT include the 4.10s tho. it is a seprate option.
ok new person. ring and pinion is a RATIO. 4.10:1 means the drive shaft will turn 4.10 times every time the trie makes 1 complete rotation. SO, the NUMERICLY higher number means the gear is LOWER, or the truck will go slower at the same rpm as a NUMERICLY lower gear. higher the number the more low end power you have or the traller tire you can pull.
Maybe not the V-8 with the towing package...the V-10 does offer the 4.10's with the towing/camper package.
Outlaw ... got a stupid question ... why you asking? You truck has been stolen...
You making plans for your next truck ??
Thats exactly right Rollcage. I was looking at a new truck that has the towing package. I wanted to know what gears it has cause I probably only have enough $$$ for lift and tires at first, but I might only be able to afford just the truck. I won't lift the truck if it has 3.55 gears thats for sure. I can find out what it has for gears but I asked just to see if anyone knew for sure.
