Explain my rear end

Ok, now my ranger had 4.10 LS rear end.. and i always had 2 wheels that spun...

What does my ram have?

2004 dodge ram 1500 hemi, with the 20" stock bubble rims...

Does it have an electronic limited slip? Is there after market gears we can get to make it a better LS so i stop getting 1 wheel wonder? I hate taking off at a light and just spinning.. or turning and burning out on accident..

If only one wheel is spinning, you have an open differential. Dodge doesn't have electronic traction controls on the trucks. The current LSD is a clutch-type. The next gen ('09) uses a helical gear (Detroit True-trac) LSD.

Yes you can upgrade your rear end. Here are some options from moesperformance.... http://moesperformance.com/index.php...ndex&cPath=1_8
I dont know what it is called exactly, but the paper that came with your truck that showed sticker price and all the things they add to the total cost should list the rear end, well mine does atleast, that way u can see what you have and how much you want to upgrade gear wise for acceleration.

If you have stock 20's, yer probably running 3.92 rear end. If you have 17's, could be 3.55. I don't know what designated these rear ends, but if you like at your window sticker, it should tell you what you have. I believe they're all 9.25" rear ends as well. Anyone feel free to correct me.
