LSD is great to have in mud, snow, slippery boat ramps, as well as the drag strip

for open differentials you have to think about how to get traction, if you have one wheel spinning its harder to get moving, so you have to apply a certain amount of brake pedal to slow the spinning tire & at the same time evenly add just enough throttle for the non spinning axle to get some traction, it is a delicate balance. It is a poor mans LSD.

I believe that you can get 3.55 with LSD, i know that they make a Locker for them,
Randys ring & Pinion sells a lot of YUKON brand

looks like the anti spin will now be available as a separate option for $350.00,and the 3.92s are being discontinued because dodge is going to a 3.99:1 ratio as an option for $25 over the standard 3.55s
the Adventurer is suppose to start this trend, is that what the call the EXPRESS??

the 2011 Ram will end production in 30 days, June 20th the factories will be closed for at least 2 weeks
