Pretty sure there is a regular cab option, judging from the 2nd sentence. (Unless Ram has 3 different 4-door cabs...)

A sport is loaded with options, an Express is a base model truck with an appearance package. The express has carpet as an option for instance.

Thats why I like the Express. It's like a modern day Super Bee or Roadrunner.

Make that a sharp Blue color instead of Black, and get the 8 speed & 3.91 gears with it... now that would be awesome! :rimshot:

I don't think you can get the 8 speed in the Express. They've been on the lots for about a month or so now but yes definitely late for a 2013

8 speed and 3.91's would be ridiculous. 4.7:1 first gear and 3.91 axle ratio is a 18.38 first gear crawl ratio from 2wd or 4hi mode....
you would hit redline at below 30 mph, or a casual shift at 10mph.

you can order 3.92 limited slip with 8hp on laramie longhorn...not sure about the express trimline. but, yeah...if you get the 3.92 the 8hp should automatically start out in 2nd gear unless you are in tow/haul mode!! :lol:

i've got a 3.73 in my f150 with ford's version of the 6HP and even that's almost too short of gearing for my taste! the truck stays in first gear for all of about 1 or two seconds before up-shifting...unless of course the pedal is mashed to the floor!
