My original plan was: Swap my carrier since it is a 3.92 LS and the donor case has 3.55 open diff. Now I have 2 questions: 1. Will a...

    4wd Questions

    I recently purchased a 2017 RAM 1500 4x4. I believe it has the Bw44-45 transfer case because it does not have 4x4 Auto - only 4x4 lock and low. I'm not sure of the "dos" and donts of these settings other than that 4x4 low is for < 25mph speeds in very low traction conditions and/or when max...
