Was getting around 20mpg until the rearend shelled out.
2007 Ram Quad Cab 2wd. Currently at 48k miles. Was getting around 20mpg until the rearend shelled out. Had dealer replace rearend and now I only get about 16mpg on a good day. Could the shop have done something wrong?
its possible that they may have installed 4.10:1 gears in place of the stock 3.73:1 gears, im assuming your also running slightly higher RPMS at highway speeds as well?
I am running a little higher RPMs.
yep thats exactly what happend then, the new axle they put in has 4.10:1 gearing instead of 3.73:1s its a better gear set if you tow/haul stuff, but if you liked your gas mileage alot i suppose you could go raise hell
