Default selectable locking rear diff

Any word on a selectable locking rear diff in the near future for a 2013 ram 1500?

In my perusal of the Ram sites, I haven't heard of anything.

I did some digging before I bought my '13. Talked to folks at ARB, which would be my first choice in a selectable, didn't really get anything out of them as to whether the new ZF axles were on their radar or not. But when I called Eaton, who makes a range of diffs that would be of interest, including both the Elocker and the Detroit, the guy I talked to there was at least familiar with the ZF axles and willing to talk about them. He didn't give me anything even resembling a time line, but said that Ram is selling enough of them, the market will be there, and he would expect that Eaton would start making diffs for the application "eventually".

But as of right now, as far as I know, there's nothing. Not even an aftermarket LSD, just the factory.

If a decent selectable locker does come on the market, I'll order one immediately.
