I've got a 6.4 I'm in the process of installing in my 2017 ram 1500, I'm running a 3.0l Whipple and a whole bunch of other crap I don't want to mention, Im building the motor to produce around 800 HP, and I've already got a "bulletproof" tranny, but I'm blank for the rear end, I'm going to eventually have a four link, but I don't know what to use for my diff/driveshaft. Is there anything not custom that can even run that hard? Can the 9.25 potentially be beefed up to take that abuse?

With a true trac,the ZF will take a fair bit of abuse,i think there are aftermarket axles available for it now,the other weak link seems to be the pinion,it's been known to shear at the front bearing.
Get ahold of Matt Fikac at Moes,he'll know about the axles.

Hey thanks man, I'll give them a call.
If you're not a member of Tuned Rams and High Performance Rams on facebook,it's worth joining both,as that's where the fast trucks hang out.
You'll even find Matt on both pages
