Default 2002 Dodge Ram Rear Differential Question

Hello, I have a 2002 Dodge Ram Quadcab 1500 RWD 4.7 engine which has a bad differential which I am going to replace however the new differential that I am planning on purchasing says 31 splines which I dont really know if my truck has 31 or not. My friend said he would pull it off and tell me how many splines it has but he's really busy at his repair shop and I dont want to be bothersome so I would just like to know if anyone knows how many splines do these trucks have with stock Differential. Any imput on this would be really appreciated.... Thanks!!!

Should be 31. And while you're in there you might want to replace it with limited slip.

Thank You for your quick response. I am thinking of replacing it with a Tru-Trac Limited Slip Differential. The one I found though has no clutches which is what I kinda want so I can get rid of the retainer clips holding the clutch packs in place which came loose and that is what caused it to mess up on me...

Ah, the Tru-Trac. Not sure how I feel about them. Better than limited slip though.

It's overkill for your combo. I got mine out of an SRT-10 quad cab.
