Electronic Locking Axle 2011 Dodge Ram 2500

Hey guys I thought I would share part of an ongoing build of a 2011 dodge ram 2500.
We managed to put an electronic locking axle in the front end, took hundreds of pictures of the process and wrote a blog.

I would like to know if anyone else has done this and your feedback of how it worked for you.

if you want to check out the blog it can be found at this address:

dodgeram2011electroniclockingaxle.wordpress.com

I thing this blog can also answer a few front end questions as well.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, The axle change was nicely done.... I'd be happy if my 2500 just had limited slip period, but first it'll get a clutch..

The factory lsd is pretty good in the 2500 trucks Greg. I know with the '06 I had 3 wheels spinning when the sled finally stopped me

Side note: aren't electric locking axles a factory option with the power wagon trim? Should be able to order all the parts easy.

The closest thing I do to off roading is dragging my son out of ditches in the winter. I figured I'd just drop in a DDT and be done with it.
