Here's what's new for 2011
Got to, buyer's tools, Build Your Own

...."Anti-Spin" is an option for ALL Rams with 3.21, 3.55 and 3.92 gear ratios now for $325

I've got a 2010 with open rear, 3.55's

It's not a problem for me,
Can even spin BOTH my Heavy 305/50R20 Grappler's on clean dry pavement...

<click for video>

there ya go, just as herc side slightly longer

I can spin just one wheel if the passenger side is in the gravel/dirt and the left one's on dry pavement.

...or if I mount up my little 27" drag radials just before heading to the track
(effective gear ratio drops to 4.30:1) and if there's a little dust on the road full throttle is almost impossible
...even trying to baby it off the line wont help once the massive torque kicks in ...Thanks to my Diablo Trinity

No problem for me on a prepped track though after a short burnout,
and yes both spin out of the water box sending me sideways.
Full throttle launches never spin after that!

For Winter driving my 4x4 is actually as good or better than my old 04' Sport 4x4 Hemi Ram with 3.92/LSD.
The ESP always keeps me going were ever I point her. Good tires make more difference than anything for winter driving.
Terra Grappler's > Good-for-a-Years HP's.

If you can get the anti-spin for $325, its a not a bad deal for the money.
I plan to eventually re-gear to 4.56's and a Detroit True Trac anyways so its' not a deal breaker for me.

Here's a good example of what "can" happen at the track without doing a short burnout to heat the tires up

Left Lane 10' QC Ram Open diff 3.55's stock tires... excessive spinning at launch
Right Lane 10' RC Ram Open diff 3.55's drag tires... (Me) Hooked and Gone!
