Default A couple newbie questions

I have a 2001 dodge 1500 quad cab 4x4, 5.9 gas motor...
I was looking at the build sheet in the glove box, and a few things listed were...

DJC Axle-Front Dana M44/2
DMH Axle Ratio- 3.92
DRB Axle-Rear, Corporate 9
DSA Axle-Anti Spin Difere

So, what type of "anti spin" diff was used in these trucks, and will it hold up to the use of larger offroad tires...

Secondly, I was thinking of going up to a 35 inch tire in the future... I am sure a gear change to 4.56 would probably be beneficial, but how much mileage would I lose with already having the 3.92 gearing?

Thanks in advance!

I have a '01 with 35's . My truck came with 4.10's from the factory due to it having the Off-Road package . I have a problem now climbing a mile long bridge because it can't maintain the rpm needed . It keeps dropping into third gear until I crest the peak of the bridge . The rear shouldn't have a problem . But be extremely careful . These rears are suppose to be serviced every 15,000 miles (?) . If not the clutches will break and come apart ruining the rear . Ask me how I know ? I serviced mine a little too late . Not a uncommon problem . I'm gonna be looking to change out the posi soon for a locker .

Really good information and thanks for taking the time to answer me,,,, is there a preferred lubricant for the rear? I don't mind spending a little extra money for better protection in the diff's...
