Towing Ram 1500 4x4

Anyone towing a 2019 Ram 1500 4x4, and if so anything I should know such as recommended gear ratio. Thanks

Recommended gear ratio for what?? The truck or the vehicle towing your truck.?

If you're referring to the truck, it doesn't make any difference, if it's the towing vehicle, what are you towing the truck with? If it's a motor home then what final drive gear ratio is contained in your differential? If it's the transmission, good luck trying to alter those gears.

Be a bit more descriptive and explain what you're trying to achieve.

Sorry, I was indeed not very clear on my question. Was just trying to decide whether to go with 3.92 or 3.21 gear ratio. 3.92 is best way it appears, as then you get limited slip.

Anti-spin rear axle is available for any of the gears including the 3.21 based on the 2019 Build & Configure on RAM's web site. For the 3.92 gears it looks like those are only available for the Hemi-equipped units.

The Electronic Locking rear axle is a different option and requires one of 3 different options to be selected - 3.92 gears, Off-Road group or North Edition.

So if you want the Electronic locker then you need a Hemi-equipped truck with the 3.92 gears. If the anti-spin is good enough then any gear and any engine option will work.
