2018 Q50 AWD Red Sport
My 2006 Dodge needed a lot to make it work. The TracRite GT LSD only let one wheel spin on ice (it's a torque multiplier 0 x X=0), and an open diff in the front. I'd go backwards going up my driveway hill with ice only on one side.I have a loaded 2019 RAM Limited Crew Cab 4X4...bought it in mid-Feb and LOVE IT! Amazing vehicle and Ford and GM can't even come close!
Truck of the Year baby
Add a Eaton E-Locker fixed that. Then the gear ratio was wrong.. so add a Gear Vendors secondary transmission. Fixed that..
Then "Unit bearing sealed hubs" add Dynatrack locking hubs. Fixed that.
Has Dodge finally fixed it's running gear to make it viable for snow and ice? Better gear selections? Trashed the Unit bearing front hubs? ($600 each not counting labor of $600 to install) Unit bearing hubs fail virtually instantly locking the wheel. My lock out hubs use a $12 Timpken bearing need 2. So $24 vs $600. They are easily checked and replaced. They also do not fail catastrophically but slowly.
This is my 3rd Dodge. B59 Cummins turbo diesel was why I've gone Dodge.
I also heard no more standard transmissions with high low transfer cases.
I'm about due for a new plow truck/winter transportation.
Hopefully I can find a truck with a solid drivetrain. Correct gearing, front, or front and rear lockers, good (Alison) transmission, and lock out hubs.
I've always had a pickup truck.
