Is there a center differential on 4WD trucks? My Jeep GC had one and was full time 4WD and had a low range as well. Totally different and way more sophisticated and capable than Ram's 4WD system. I wish Ram would offer Quadra-Drive II. I'd pay for that.It's still an open center diff, right? Not sure there would be binding b/n front and rear because it would work the same way as a rear axle that is open; the left and right (front and rear) can still spin independently. I always thought you only ever got binding when you locked the diffs, which is a separate thing from 4x4 itself.
My Jeep has permanent 4x4 engaged, doesn't even have a "low" though all but the "basic" models do come with the 2 speed transfer case.
Just read up. Our trucks don't have a center diff and should only be used in 2WD or 4-Auto on dry pavement to prevent premature wear or damage. In keeping with this thread's subject, fuel mileage suffers also.
Active shutters. More efficient engine. I drove his on the way back and his still beat my 1500.that makes now sense? How does he beat u?
It's not the truck, it's the different driver getting better mileage. Y'all could swap trucks and he'd still win.
Not confused at all. I knew the truck has a Dana transfer case. Says so in the sales literature. Another poster said he thought that it had a center diff. I read up to confirm. Another poster claims it's ok to run in 4-High all the time. I can't see how.I think you are confused between a differential and a transfer case. Any vehicle with front driving and rear driving wheels has a transfer case or a transaxle (like an awd or fwd transmission).
I just got my truck back from the dealer. They say just keep driving it. Break it in more they say. Not sure where the 500 mile break in went. But my truck has 2600 miles on it.
How many miles we got to drive these things till they "break in"?
11B/H/C - Far as I'm concerned, we all work toward the same common goal. Kill the enemy efficiently and effectively. Hit em' till they stop moving or die tryin'!
Anyone else getting less than 14mpg? My 4th gen got way better economy. I know it’s a truck and I don’t expect amazing economy, but i do expect to get what I got out of my 4th gen which was 16-17, and also does anyone have a vibration coming from the drivetrain when In 4wd hi or auto?
I don't think it's possible to increase MPG with a higher octane; higher octane just prevents pre-ignition, it doesn't give you better MPG.My city mileage is on par with my '15 Tundra, 13ish. Highway is significantly better than my Tundra ever did. If I can keep it under 85, my highway MPG is 19+.
I started toying with the mid-grade 89 octane last two tanks. Doesn't seem to make much of a difference in the city, but highway does seem to be better. Last tank the mid-grade was a 6% premium, but it generally runs a little more than that.
Making a ~750 mile road trip this weekend. I plan to run the mid-grade to see if it's any cheaper per mile.
