Also I don't see how your having such traction issues if you have those gears unless your brake standing or in the wet, pretty well known the torque management system limits power in first on these trucks. I got 3.55's and I can barely get them to chirp on dry pavement
you must have a trac loc sir.....if you press the esp buttom (at least mine) will spin clean through first easily...no power braking....

I like mint, but prefer wintergreen. It's more moist and I like the flavor.

dont see anything on my options list for track loc, also theres many people on this forum that have reported these trucks dont spin in first from a stop unless they were 3.92 gears or if its wet out.

Turning off the traction control for me will give me a very small chirp. both my tires spin in the wet, i know that because it goes sideways when i floor it without traction control.

Big Horn package only specifies 20" wheels, Hemi, and a few other interior features. Rear end is determined seperately. I priced them with each ratio. It was just how they chose to build them. Not a blanket standard, like 4x4 comes standard with 3.55s. 3.92 is an option upgrade for all except the R/T which comes standard.

My 2010 Crew Cab Austin Tan Hemi will not chirp the tires on dry pavement even with the traction control off. Now on wet pavement, look out, it will get squirrelly.

Im a Timberwolf Straight man myself. Trying to quit though.
