You could see if these guy have plans on doing the Ram.

I also know people who have cut the wires to the traction control module and installed a switch. Other claim that removing the abs fuse does the same thing. Hack into the wire harness and pull fuses at your own risk.

I came across mention of this on another forum. If I recall, it was something like you had to put it in 4 low, put transmission in neutral, and hold esp button for like 8 seconds.

I'll see if I can find any of the links

I believe traction control re-enables when you switch back to 2wd.

Traction and stability control can both disabled in 4 high as well. While your truck is stopped just hold down the ESP button for like 10 seconds or so.. there'll be a chime... viola! The HUD will say ESP DISABLED, but ya, as soon as you switch outta 4 high ESP comes back on :'( On the bright side 4 wheel doughnuts are pretty fun :D

I belive it also automaticaly fully reingages at 40mph but that may be 2wd only.

Superchips wont do it, BUT the transmission upgrade is worth it, the Diablo can be bought and you can put in a tune that costs extra and it will take off the traction control , Diablo doesnt do it themselves but a guy makes the program for it ,DO NOT cut the wire to the accelerometer, that is the wire the Chally's and chargers cut, if you cut that wire it will take a trip to the dealer to get the lights turned back off, just putting the wire back wont help, if you want to try the tire fry , pull the connectors apart under the front fenders that go to the ABS , that is what a few buddies do a the drag strip. I have never asked if there lights go off after though.
