Default Which axle ratio do you have?

Just curious what the percentage of each axle ratio members of this
forum have (or have ordered) on their 2013 and 2014 Ram with the 8 speed auto.

And since the 3.55 axle ratio is not available on most of the 2014 Ram's.
Post if you would have, or wanted the 3.55 axle, and whether you went with the
3.92 or 3.21 since you could not get/order the 3.55.

Thanks

3.92 no spin with the 8speed transmission. They really shouldn't offer any other combination

I have the 3.21 with the Pentastar and its absolutely fine. I don't tow anything so I don't worry about that.

I didn't have a choice since I have the HFE which is 3.21 only. I don't plan on towing anything bigger than a small boat on occasion so it's not a big deal for me.

+1 on the 3.92. I'm betting the 3.21's are fine on flat areas but 3.92's for mountains for sure....

Ordered my '13 Big Horn with the 3.55's. Don't tow anything, but if I do in the future, I'll have very good rating capacity. Getting 17.5 mpg's with 75/25 city/hwy driving. Couldn't be happier with my selection.

3.21. My window sticker said 3.55 with the sport package and limited slip. However down further on the window sticker which shows the 8 speed auto there is a 3.21 listing. Still confusing to me so I went back to the dealership and looked at other new trucks with 8 speeds and regardless of what was on the window sticker I looked under the trucks as I did mine and they all had 3.21 stickers fixed to the axle without exception. Everyone had 3.21 on every 8 speed hemi I looked at.
