RE: Gear Axle Ratio change 3.55 to 3.92
I'll know next week which method the dealer goes with to remedy the problem. The salesman already did a regional search to see what 3.92 equipped Durangos are out there and there are a handful, but none with the SLT "E" package and the options we have on our Durango, so that would lead to the optionofswapping out the 3.55's for the 3.92's, which I would prefer they do as we love the way this Durango is with all of it's options, especially since you mention it's should be a straight forward process, including the recalibration of the speedo. I hope this is a heads up as well to anyone buying a Durango looking to use the brochure's advertised 8,750 lbs tow for the 4x4 5.7L. I have full confidence it will be resolved just fine, this is an excellent dealership who I have purchased from many times, and in this case they have acknowledged there was an understanding the truck towed the full 8,750 as we discussed in length before the purchase how the Durango would be needed to pull our travel trailer. Yes, I wish the dealer knew that the little $40.00 3.92 gear ratio option was needed, but we'll work through it.I'll post the outcome whwn it's done.
