It would not be my first choice for a TV for the 330RSTS (10,950 GVWR) but a 4.10 would be a decent margin at 12,300 GVWR on the TT if the need arose.

It is not so much about the 4500 breaking down as me being out of town and having the option for a buddy to meet me at Faire with the TT. Its first come first serve at most of the events. So, if he can get there, set up, and I meet him later: I'm golden.

You can always double check by crawling under the truck and looking at the axle.. There is usually a axle ratio tag on the rear driver side. It's about the size of a credit card and is white with a barcode on it.. Wipe off the dirt and your ratio will be on it.

First thing I checked. No dice.

I did not think to look for a tag in the glove box though. I will check that.

The owners manual just says go to the Ram website. That was a lot of help. NOT.

Any Mopar dealer can decipher your VIN and let you know anything you need to know. If they say they can't, they're lying or lazy.

My dealer took my vin number and ran me a printout with everything on the vehicle. Took him 5 minutes.

Yeah messing around with a gear swap is a PITA. You'd likely be money ahead to find the correct axle code and start scouring salvage yards for a front and rear diff and just clean them up.
