If you get the dealership to order the OEM parts and do the install with their flash, that should keep your warranty intact. It will just be more expensive to have it done by them is all, but the benefits of keeping the warranty definately could be worth it.

I think that is what dodge uses but I can't be certain.

The warranty question is going to get everyone coming out of the woodwork but I think it depends on the part (OEM vs aftermarket) and depends on how "cool" the dealer is. Some are more willing than others to work with you and take a more reasonable approach.

Ok guys I really appreciate the info. thats why this site is so great! I think the first step is to at least talk with my dealer and see where they stand and then make any decisions.

By the way I wish everyone on the site a very happy holiday season. Stay safe and healthy every one.

I talked to my dealer about this and they said if they were to switch my gears out front and rear it would be 5k. I was like ouch.I am going with letting someone do the work that will warranty all the parts and such.Parts and laybor will be around 1300.00 for me.

Back to you bro.Happy Holidays to everyone!!

Bighorn thats freaking insane!!! No way would I pay that! I don't want to change gear ratios just add limited slip so hopefully it will be much cheaper than that.

I would hope it would be cheaper for just adding LSD lol.

I am switching to 4.56's so that is pretty cheap I would think for my truck.

trac lok is the strock unit.....if you were to purchase the gears from mopar and had a dealer willing to play ball you could have the 3.92 gear set installed with lsd and have them add it to your options list.......otherwise it will not be covered....i would def recommend attempting to get a dealer tech to do the install as all repairs are covered for 12/12 and they have the experience/equipment to get it done

I would do the same thing but to get the dealer to do this it will cost a butt load.
