Default Dumb question #1

I have a 14 bolt differential cover, what kind of gears do I have inside? I know its a limited slip, just don't know what gearing... And which diff lube am I supposed to use, plus the MOPAR additive?

You can't tell by the rear cover . Crawl under your truck and look for a tag under one of those bolts . It will have a series of numbers on it . That is your ratio.

To figure out if it is a limited slip just go leave some black lines in a parking lot.

If you leave two lines then you have limited slip. If not it's and open differential.

azrchrd,

peek inside your glovebox and you should find a decal with build info, including rear axle info.
