Default Lockers for 2011 1500 5.7

I need some help. I need to put lockers in my 2011 5.9 1500. I can't find anything on the internet so I call the dealer and they can't help.

The dealer did say, based on the VIN, that it had a 235 mm Corporate Rear End. I can't find anything about the Corporate Rear End either.

Can someone help out a 40 year Jeep Guy / New Dodge Guy?

Where can I find a Lockers for this thing?

Thanks

try searching for the 2009-2010 models as well, they would fit. Also its a 5.7, search might not turn up results if you put 5.9 in

The '09-10 models still use the older 9.25 corporate rear end. 2011 is the first year of the 235 corporate diff so it's a new animal to me as well.

Any idea where to get a locker for this rear end and front diff too.

Sorry I'm so late getting back but I work a lot and don't get to gab much.

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for all the input. It appears that due to the 235 Corporate differentials no one knows about lockers for this truck.

Thanks again for the help.

Good luck finding an LSD or full locker for a Front 1500 Diff

I inquired with my ARB supplier and he said there likely wont be anything
from them or any other LSD manufacturer because of the light weight aluminum housing up front on the 1500's

Should have bought a 2500 (Solid Front Axle) if you want to lock the Front up.

Sounds to me like the Dealers listing is a simple metric conversion, not a whole new axle from Corporate

235 mm = 9.251968" rounded off = 9.25"

After a quick visual inspection on a dealers lot, the 2011 rear looks identical to my 2010.

Someone should talk to a tech thats had them both open and worked on them,
or maybe there are different part numbers at the parts department.

My understanding was that over the years for some reason it is referred to as the 235mm and although it has remained roughly the same for years some minor changes mean some guys refer to one as a 235 and one as the 9.25 I could be wrong but thats just what ive always heard
