I had the V8 Magnum and now the 5.7 2013 Hemi- no noticeable noise to my ears. But since you might have mechanics ears... I'd suggest a couple test drives. I always look for the youngest sales guy and ask him if we can "drive it like we stole it". They always say yes ;-) and you'll hear all the noises it makes.

I just noticed that the truck I was looking does not have LSD but has a conventional differential. Sorry, if it sounds absurd, is Limited Slip Dif (LSD) really necessary if it already have on demand 4x4? Should I buy without this feature or get the one that has both LSD and on demand 4x4? thx

I had to settle for a truck with the 3.55 and no LSD and I was concerned as well. I also have the Auto 4x4 that I use regularly when the roads are partial snow covered. I don't off road much other than a 1.5 mile dirt road back to my fathers camp, so I am not too concerned. Just yesterday the roads were a little damp, I did a jack rabbit start and both tires spun

Guess it depends what you use it for. If you are on the road most of the time I wouldn't worry. If you do play off road and need both tires turning then I would find another truck.

I am sure that you will get lot's of different opinions about this. It really depends on what you are going to do with the truck. LSD will keep tire spin to a minimum off the line. I have also noticed that it tends to pull the truck in one direction or another on icy conditions. I am sure others will argue, but that is what I noticed on my '02 1500 and my '07 2500. My Jeep has a conventional open differential, and I never really noticed the pulling from one side this winter. I may be wrong but just my $.02

It will push your truck through a turn!

My F150 had electronic locking differential and if it was engages through a turn with ice it would try like hell to push me straight.

An open differential will extend your tire life also since it isn't trying to turn both tires the same speed through dry corners.
