Shredded rear diff clutches [email protected]#$%

Has anyone else encountered this problem? I was told it was from spinning the tires too hard. With the 3:92 rear end and the twentys my truck won't spin tooo much before it catches and is gone. Are these rear ends not made for some level of abuse? I didn't know I needed to baby this thing. Is there a heavier system that wont crap itself after a little fun? When I super charge this thing I'll be replacing it weekly if a little spin is all it takes to destroy it.

Landmark Dodge Chrysler Jeep. I work For them In Sales, They say they will cover it under 7/70 warranty. I'm at 50k so if this is going to be a persistant problem I've only got another 20K of freebys. When I SC this thing I'll deffinatly need an upgrade.

This is a "Limited" slip. It WILL slip. One time while making my own road through the woods I got a front tire on a berm which really loaded the oppsite rear tire, I heard some moaning from the diff and reallized I was spinning the unloaded one. I would imagine if I stayed in the gas I would have burned up some clutches. Anything like that happen to you?

depends on how extreme you want to go. there's always a locker as an option for you. most of them are rated at insane hp and torque tolerances. you'll snap an axle long before you destroy a detroit. that's their reputation anyway. i personally just had a powertrax no-slip installed in my truck. see the thread in this forum titled "powertrax?" if you want more info.

Thats the problem with a L/S. The clutches are gonna wear out over time or, like above, they will fail because of their weak design. If I were gonna run a SC or be doin a lot of John Force style burnouts I'd go with a true locker.

Well then I better settle down with my John force type burnout's.. I wonder if the 2500 units have a low quality LM unit as well :

I have a similar situation. The clutch isn't burnt up, but the retaining clip that hold the guide pin in place broke. I think this is a defect because I don't smoke my tires and only have 39,000 miles on it. I also know of two durangos that the same thing happened to (don't know if they share the same diff). I go in Monday to have the whole carrier group replaced.
