Default What axles?

Got an 06 2500 4x4 and want to upgrade gears and diffs, but I'm unsure of the axle models and splines I have.

There is a number on the tubes if you get that and call someone like Randys ring and pinion he can tell you what is available. You might also look at the sticker under the hood it may have it

Yea check the rear axle on the front of it and passenger side. It will tell ya what you have. You can go to 4.56 which is probably all your going to need. I believe you can go to 4.88 max on the Ram axles. You dont really need more then 4.56 unless you going really big.

To figure out what gearing you need there is a calc. You take the new tire size divide that by the old tire size. Then you use that number and multiply it by the stock gear size. Now that will give you the gear you would need to make the truck feel like stock.
