If the truck is equipped with the feature it should work regardless of trans or motor. I'm almost positive It should be standard in all 4th gen RAM's 1500's and up, so 2009 and up. I'm not able to verify my comment because i never had one that old, but it's the same system Jeep Wranglers have been using for years in the JK models, so 2007 and up.If you have a V8 1500 with the 8 speed transmission you probably have an active LSD, the 2500 that use a 6 speed transmission or any other truck (in stock configuration) that uses a 6 speed transmission probably does not.
Diesel’s have a higher torque / horsepower curve and therefore have a different axle ratio pairing.
The full time 4x4 off-road enthusiasts tend not to use anti-roll bars on the rear or front axle . An anti-roll bar’s intention is to keep both wheels of the same axle on the pavement which helps LSD’s perform as intended but are not much help off pavement.
I use 4low in my 1500 with a v8 and it works for most situations where extra traction is needed but I’m not rock crawling either.
I have a 14 Hemi with the 6 speed trans, and BLD works great considering i don't have a rear locker, only the OE rear LSD
or with 37's
