    I also find that whole I guess I'd call it a "hub" covering the back of the rotor except for where the caliper mounts.

    That would be a dust shield no?

    I think so, it could just be the angle it just looks different to me for some reason. I'm probably overthinking it.

    I'd assume the 3.21 on that's tag means the axle ratio. Are the keeping 3.55 any 3.92 as well?

    Yeah that's for axle ratio. I'd assume that the axle ratio choices will remain the same. I know you can't currently get 3.55's on an 8 speed Hemi but I believe they're an option on the Pentastar and EcoDiesels, I'm not 100% sure on that though.

    Quite a taper to the axle tube as well.

    All 1500s have had that taper for years. The lighter duty 250 I bought new in 91 had a semi floating 9.25 rear and the axle tubes weren't tapered on it.

    Looks good! I wanted to see what it looked like in silver. It also looks like that padding that hid the shape of the hood has been removed as well. Thanks for posting! Any other shots?

    I like that the bumper is flatter and more in line with the grille, but from the front I much prefer the DS bumper and grille shapes. I don't like that the bumper touches the bottom of the grille. I think some painted area between the bumper and grille would have looked better, especially on higher trims to help balance out what will be a huge "chunk" of chrome (admittedly, I may be biased because I do not like chrome on vehicles). This also makes the painted area under the headlights look strange. As for the grille and headlights, they aren't as turned down like the DS so it looks less mean.

    I also wish something in the headlights would align with the horizontal chrome bar in the grille so it looks like an actual design element and not just tacked on.

    Edit: Something like this is what I had in mind -

    Is it just me, or is the front bumper apart from the fender on the sides of the truck?

    I saw that too. I think it's a shadow.

    I'm still eagerly awaiting a profile shot where the aggressive sides are shown. @redriderbob has mentioned the "slab sides" of DS being very plain looking compared to the DT.
