Wow i was never introduced to this before. Am i seeing this right. 2500$? Or does the performance shop your going to already have this? That is pretty cool. I didnt know of this program.
Oh I could swap the entire axle over myself,shipping it here would be +$500 though, but that's just the Rear
There is no such thing as a Mopar Front 4.10 axle for a 1500 Ram. So I would still have to buy aftermarket, and pay someone to swap the R&P up front for my 4x4.

I'm going to bite the bullet and go with 4.56's and a True Trac... Go Big or Go Home!
No use going half assed now, I want to be a street killer too, not just at the track.
Need to make a few passes with my new headers first though, will look into the gear swap mid summer when its too hot for racing.
Then I'll be back to the track in fall to destroy the competition.

In order to get gears,lockers and labor all under warranty it has to come from the same local shop,supplier.

otherwise if there's a massive failure no one would claim the failure was their fault while your stranded with a broke-ass truck.

I've dealt with two local supplier/installers for many of my Jeeps,
will be shopping them against each other for the best deal.

Yea your right.

Thats why you have to always keep your original parts!!

It breaks put your 3.55 gears back on. Of course 1800$ is NOT easy to swallow. So getting it covered under warranty may be a good route. just a lot more $$$ but worth it IF and only IF it breaks.

No, you dont keep the 3.55's and reinstall them if something breaks

I meant the warranty on the new gears/locker (usually 12 -24 months) and the shops installation warranty.

Not the Dodge factory warranty, if my engine blows or my power windows stop working, that's covered by Chrysler
aftermarket part failures fall under their own warranty (lift kits, drop kits, Magnaflow CatBacks ....etc , and Yes gears/lockers too

The rear end is from Mopar. You shouldnt have to worry about warranty. It should be indestructible!

Haha. I understand what your saying.

We're not talking apples to apples here,
You asked where I'm getting my TrueTrac

When I say I'm going to a "local shop" for ALL the parts/labor
I meant a specialty performance gear supplier/installer ...not a Dodge Dealer. Mopar is out of the question at this point for me.

I would be getting a non factory Detroit TrueTrac and likely Yukon Gear sets, 4.56's and master install kits, Front and Rear.

I have to have the same shop that supplies the parts to do the installation.

If there is a failure shortly after installing it all and I shear a couple teeth off the pinion, it gets into the helical gears of the TrueTrac.
There's a huge finger pointing session between the Gear supplier, Eaton (the TruTRack supplier) and the Shop that did the actual install,
if all three are sourced from different outlets.

I once blew a rear diff on a Jeep with Motive 4.56's and an ARB Air Locker.
Traced it what I thought was a weak pinion, sheared 3 teeth off. But try to prove it.....no way

Trouble was I bought the ARB from one supplier, the gears from another to save a few bucks, the install was a third shop.

All three would point to the other if I tried to get it repaired under warranty.

So I ended up getting all replacements ordered and installed from the same shop,
and they said if it breaks again within a year its ALL covered.
Same shop supplies and installs or not at all from now on, lesson learned.

OK ok im on track with it now. I was under the impression we were talking about getting your gears from mopar and your trutrack from somewhere else. And having a shop do the work. But i follow you now. Thats pretty good you found everything at one shop. I cant wait to see how you do in the 1/4 mile. compared to your 3.55 gears.
