Default I think I may have a rear diff issue

I have a 12 Ram Express Quad Cab and am noticing that when I turn sharply I get a sound as if I was in a truck with a locking diff... that tire screeching sound... Or as if I was in 4hi on dry pavement. I know I'm not because my dial is on 2hi and I know how hard it is to steer in 4hi on dry pavement...
I never had this sound coming from any of the other 4wd full size pickups I ran. Forgive my lack of knowledge but to my understanding the rear diff of these trucks are limited slip which means that one wheel will slip or turn faster than the other during turns. Is that correct? What could be the cause of the noise? I never had a truck with such large tires and wheels... can this be because of the size of my wheels?

Thanks. Is there any reason why I wouldn't have heard it with my old Ford or the other 4Wd pickups at work that I drive? I only hear it with my Ram.

My 2012 does this same once in a while. My 2008 Ram did the same and is nothing to worry about...

Lmao @ "auto porn"! Great photo, but wondering if you have a regular cab like mine? The light rear end weight combined with the 390 horses & LSD = tire chirp. I kind of like it when people turn their heads when it happens!
