Iv got an open diff in my 01 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 and it sucks. I got stuck trying to jump the curb in my front yard
The same crap happened to me more times than Id like to remember
I'm mostly a pavement pounder, so i went with a truetrac. I just had it installed on Friday, so I haven't had a chance to really try it out. I plan on the 500 mile break in process since I added my gears at the same time.Then Ill change the gear oil and test the ole' SOB out
The truetrac and the 4.56 gear combo is super quiet back there, I'm happy with the setup.
I was going to install the Detroit Locker but thought it was over kill for my needs, so that's why I went with the Truetrac.
Read up on the Truetrac on the search button and check out how folks are manipulating the breaks to hook the spinning tire while its in the air, or when just one tire wants to spin. I live in Miami, so I wont be doing any rock crawling in the future, actually ever
Check out PORC (performance off road center) for the Detroit Truetrac or Locker, they have the best prices on the web.
