    I was just curious what axles the 2500's use, researching lockers for the truck, and not sure if its a chrysler in house or a DANA axle

    Maybe a Google search directed him here? Doubtful since he has been here awhile but still. Kind of amazes me when somebody gets ridiculed for asking a question on a forum and is told to Google it. Well many times a Google search will direct you to a forum where you can ask it.

    kind of reminds me of a guy on the cummins site. asked if anything on the front end has been upgraded since 2007. for fuk sakes there isnt hardly one part in common. why would someone even ask that question

    It’s a valid question, especially since a lot of the 2019 chassis has been updated.

    The 2500 is still the 11.5” AAM.

    Yeah but if you google fog lights for a 2019 Ram 3500, you will come up empty as far as PN's or kits.

    I was on AAM’s web site the other day and saw mention of a helical hybrid locker. Has the helical setup like Ram uses in the LSD combined with E-locker functionality. That would be the perfect diff IMO.

    I didn’t go so far as to research fitment since I have a PW.

    Having built a few rigs, my personal choice would be ARB in any application where it fits. The helical / locker combo might sway my mind.

    The downside to e-lockers is AFAIK all the designs unlock when you reverse direction and then have to re-lock. Which for technical stuff is not ideal.

    Your Power Wagon has the limited slip/locker rear and the e-lockers do remain engaged in reverse.
