Traction is a huge factor for pickups used by contractors, construction workers, utility companies, and oil/gas field workers. Get stuck in the field and it costs time and poses potential safety risks to driver and passengers.

Auburn Gear, Inc., a leading U.S.-based manufacturer of high-performance differentials, has finally answered the call for a better limited-slip than the optional OE Chrysler 9-¼ ZF rear axle found under Ram 1500s built after 2010.

Auburn says its new aftermarket 9-¼ differential is the first to market and is designed for easy installation and higher performance than the original equipment.

This high-torque-bias limited-slip differential is engineered to surpass the abilities of the OE differential, making Auburn’s new differential even more attractive to those who want to upgrade their drivetrains and their performance capabilities.
Auburn’s design provides superior bias torque to the high-traction wheel and is compatible with gear ratios of 2.71:1 and up.Aubrun Limited slip5420106_1
“I expect Auburn’s new diff. to be stronger overall and to deliver better traction, so we’ll see less one-wheel wonders,” Jeremy Ayers, president of J.T.’s Parts & Accessories of Cashmere, Washington, said. “Auburn’s products have the best warranty in the business, and the fact that their products are made in the U.S.A. is important to our customer base.” 
All Auburn differentials are backed by the company’s one-year warranty and exclusive Differential Replacement Exchange (D-REX) Program.
According to the terms of the D-REX Program, Auburn will replace any differential within the first four years of purchase, regardless of circumstances.
