    I am interested in ram 1/2ton crew cab. Like to get the V6 with the 8 speed. Will be towing a trailer with two ATVs on it. When you do your towing report, it would beneficial if you put the axle ratio with the engine and tranny combination.
    It would aid your reader in making a choice of vehicle and power train combination.
    As for the diesel, I think it would be a very long time to get your money back on what you are paying for it, unless you are driving long distances all the time.

    Our vehicle was equipped with the 3.21 ratio. There's an available 3.55 ratio, priced at $50, which cuts gas mileage by an unknown amount. We wanted to see how well the Ram did on fuel, which is why we wanted the 3.21.
