Did a Chrysler 9.25 ever come in a 4x4 Dodge with 2.94 gears?  I’ve read in a few places that 2wd trucks possibly did but would a truck with a Dana 44/Chrysler 9.25 combo come with them?  That just seems odd to me

No, I am reasonably sure 3.21s are the "tallest" gears available in a 4WD full size Dodge in the '72-'93 era.

Well I was lied to by the previous owner and I verified tonight that my Dana 44 front and 9.25 rear do in fact have 2.94 gears in them..... which I’m obviously not happy about.  So unless they were swapped out of a different truck or lord knows what could have all been changed.

I stand corrected, it seems 2.94 gears were available with the D44 front up through the '85 model year.  Very bizarre.

Exactly how many MPGs would be saved "theoretically" using 2.94 gears vs 3.55?My 87 dakota is a gutless wonder with 2.94 gears and 215/75/15 tires.Even with a 5 speed the best I have ever gotten out of it was 14 mpg highway with a LA v6.My 96 dodge ram on the hand gets 16 mpg with 3.21 gears,and 285/75/16's with a "magnum" v6 and an automatic.
