I think that is the best looking wheel on RAM's stable. I did not want 20" wheels anyway!

Very nice! I've had my black truck though. Somebody makes a polish just for black. Keeps the black from going smoky gray. When you can see your fingerprints on the black, you need it.
I sometimes wish I had ordered 4:10.
I air the dually tires down to 42 when not hauling.

Thanks! Yeah Iím pretty particular about having a clean truck so I probably added about 100 extra car washes every year to my things to do list. Might be a good idea to air down the tires a bit...I noticed it doesnít take corners as nice as my old truck. A little flat on turns. Like an older 3 wheel atv vs dirt bike. It doesnít lean into the turn at all lol But it does drive nice and will probably keep me from flying around like I have a 911

Iíve had a few black vehicles in the last 10 years,I like to think I know how clean them properly. Clay bar, swirl remover,good quality wax...but I wasnít aware of black specific polish and wax. I see turtle wax and Meguires both offer them Thanks for the heads up

Best decision I made. Finally reached 500 miles on odometer so took it out for a spin to check everything out.Have a little over 6” between bedrail and fiver. Tows SO much better. When I go over highway transitions it doesn’t get all squirrely. Feels much more stable and glad I listened to everyone’s input. The 8 foot bed makes it less worrisome when maneuvering. Thanks again everyone!
The auto air level is nice. It lowers truck 1 inch in back and keeps everything level (alternate trailer height)

jasin1,
Just noticed your signature. I have the HO Aisin combo as well in a SRW.
I thought that combo was designed for the 3.42 rear end only. I did not know it was available in the 4.10 that you have. Is that a new option this year or is my info wrong? (entirely possible)
Thanks
RMc

No as far as Iíve seen itís been available. I saw several 4:10 HO Aisin Trucks..i didnít look at 2019 but 2020 definitely available..I had the 6.7 with the 68rfe and 4:10 in my 2012 srw 2500.This one seems much more capable

Could not agree more, this is way more capable TV than the 2001 Ram 2500, I need to check the mirrors to make sure the 13,000# 5er is still back there!

Thanks! And I have to credit the forum with helping me make the decision.A person can only make good decisions based on the knowledge they have at hand.The combined knowledge of forum members is a great asset for me personally.

When I bought a 2016 3500 Cummins HO Aisin SRW the only axle ratio available was 3.42. I was pulling a light Montana HC and it worked well. Duallys are available with several ratio choices.

K,
Thanks gearhead.
I guess only the SRW is required to have the 3.42 to match up with the HO/Aisin combo?
