I think it will take that long because it will. I'm a certified Master Technician with over 20 years of experience. Pulling off a diff cover and popping out a couple spider gears isn't exactly what I would call difficult. When the manufacturer says that it can be done by the average Joe in a couple hours, you have to figure that a professional can do it faster and better. So don't lump me in with the rest of the crowd. Thanks.

^hey man I'm not trying to be rude at all. There is definitely a difference if you know it in and out and the everyday guy doing it on a saturday over a few beers or whatever. But don't you have to pull the axles? Shoot it would take me 30 minutes just to get the truck jacked up and wheels off...

Sorry, sometimes I take it for granted having a lift, airtools and factory information at my disposal. You don't need to pull the axles all the way out if you don't want to. Just enough so that the spider gears come out. Read lots of positive reviews about the Powertrax No-slip on 4x4 pages. Around $500, it seems like the most logical choice to me. Plus, if the rearend starts getting noisey, put the spiders back in and head to the dealer..

Sorry. You best bet is to go to the parts department at the local dealer and ask.

Easy there! Nobody had any idea you were a technician and there isn't anything listed in your profile that would give that indication. I don't think he was commenting on your skill anymore than he was comparing it to what he thought it would take him to do the same job.

Is adding the LSD just a matter of swapping out spider gears or does the whole chuck/differential need to get changed like most applications would? If that is the case then you have to switch the ring gear to the new diff then you have to set up the gear pattern all over again. Pinion depth would remain fine but you'd have to set up the backlash and pattern all over again. Than can get time consuming if you haven't done it before.

Adding an LSD is a lot more difficult than adding the locker that I was referring to. The locker just replaces the spider gears and stays inside the factory case that the spiders stay in. The lsd would require removal of the ring gear and bearings. Then the rearend would have to be set up all over again to compensate for the new parts.

I got my build sheet from Dodge this morning, very quickly I might add seeing I just emailed them late last night. I'm very happy to find that my truck has the 3.92's with Anti-Spin.

Unfortunately most of us assumed lsd would be standard - my truck is a Laramie package & still no lsd. My 2002 SLT 4.7 2 wheel drive had it. Live & learn.
