    **2011 ram Laramie 2.5 level/lift on 35s with 180,000 km** Okay so a few months ago I asked a few questions about some transfercase issues I was having, ended up changing the transfercase hoping my issue would go away... it did, it fixed my issue with not having 4x4... but... on a slippery road while turning I can hear and feel something slipping, then if I turn traction control off and put the truck in 4x4 lock and step on it to me it seems like something's slipping in the transfercase.
    Truck has 180,000 km, most of them are highway driving, has a 2.5 level/lift on 35 12.50, 20 open country mt's. Started noticing this issue over the summer when off roading a little. I think I'll pull the diff covers off tomorrow and take a look to see if any things messed up. I'm not sure if I can post a video here but I'll try, any suggestions or tips is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Sorry for the long delay, I just saw this post, not sure why I didn't receive notification. Changing the diff fluid would be a good idea, but I honestly think this is a sound being made by the limited slip differential and is normal with traction control on. Lock in 4x4 and turn traction control off completely and you should not hear the sound anymore. For diff fluid, the best we recommend would be from Amsoil at the link below. Let us know if you have any further questions.
