RAM is on record that the Rebel is an appearance pack not a raptor rival. Although my old FX4 ranger has a limited slip so I'm not sure what FCA is getting at...Is there a particular reason why they are skipping over these things?
Limited slip will be available as an option, lockers not available at allSo is that a basIc ram? Or do they come with limited slip? I don't need a raptor but was hoping the rebel was a little more capable than a run of the mill 4x4. I think they nailed the looks. I was reading a article and it said the rebel was going to have 12 inches of wheel travel. That's the only article that I have seen stating this. Thought they might of been trying to give the raptor a run for the mony but after reading more it is more of a looks package. Does look good though
no LSD and no diesel is stupid.Too bad limited slip wasn't standard, something I think should be at this stage in the truck industry.
good pointBoth Toyota TRD and Ford FX4 offer locking diffs on their off road packages why wouldn't Ram do this in their new competing model? I see this as an oversight on their part. Offering a rear locker would give the model more off road chops and from a marketing perspective more credibility.
Seems easy enough in the rear, the front is where you might find an issue...How hard would it be to add air lockers to the front and rear ? Seeing how it already has air it shouldn't be toooo hard but then again I'm no mechanic.
