So.....for 2011, LSD is available for the 3.55 gears! Guess Dodge was listening.

So, does this mean I could have my dealer put the factory LSD in my 2009 with the 3.55's? I'd love to do gears to, but the money is just out of reach in a 4x4.

Well, this is my bad! I was very dilligent (I thought) when I researched the Ram before I did my purchase, and did not see that option. I could only locate the Outdoorsman and some Sports with the 3.92's and the LSD. I could find nowhere where the LSD was an option with the 3.55's. Mine is a 2011 model, too!

My sport has 3.92 with LSD. I think that is the only way the sport is configured. I haven't really had it long enough to say how well it really works, but I know backing in the driveway I gave it a little bit of gas to get the front tires up over the curb and left two nice black marks.

LSD is available for most ratios, but, i am surprised that MOPAR offered it as an option
if you go to Randys Ring & Pinion website
http://www.ringpinion.com/
you can likely find a locker for yours, cheaper than through Ramtrucks.com

just got home from work pulled in my drive way and did a quick power brake, left two little black marks. I have the 3.55 gears but it did not say lsd on my options list. both wheels definately left marks. I was reading this post in work and had to come home and try it. My neighbors are kinda snotty so I did it real quick.

I tried that too with my 3:55 non LSD.
Both will bite if they have equal traction.
If one side has less traction like on ice, that side will spin and you will go nowhere.

Esy way to see what you have, jack the rear up and spin the wheel. If both spin same direction you have a lsd.
