Rams now have a proprietary ZF axle which weighs around a third less than comparable axles
The proprietary ZF axles weigh up to 34 percent less than, and improve fuel efficiency by 2 percent relative to, comparable axles. We began to incorporate the ZF axles in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango in 2010 and will use it in the Ram pick-up truck starting in 2011.
