In my continued search for a 2016 V6 4x4 Rebel I find several builds not to far from me with everything I want except.....
Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle

Seems a high proportion of the V6 builds are speced out by the dealers with the 3.21 Rear Axle Ratio instead.
I was trying to order but gave up after becoming extremely frustrated with the south florida dealers so waiting for one to come available the way I want it.

My last truck had locking diffs front & rear so actually feel the Anti-Spin Differential Rear Axle is a downgrade.

I am not a gear head... am I missing something regarding the 3.21 Rear Axle? Slight MPG advantage maybe but can not imagine another reason why a truck pushed as a 4x4 would be speced with 3.21 Rear Axles. Maybe I am being picky? I could be driving a Rebel right now if it was not for this one detail.

Interesting... as far as i knew, the v6 rebels all came with a 3.92 rear axle. I have never seen one with the 3.21 axel.

Taken from Ram Rebel offroad pickup trucks

"The V6 is only sold as a 4x4, with a 3.92 gear ratio that better leverages its power and torque. Both 4x4 versions have standard Ram 1500 Borg-Warner electric transfer cases with locking 2.64:1 low gears and neutral positions; the V6 has a 44-45 part-time setup, while the V8 ...."

I also remember them saying the V6 4x4 Rebel was only going to be available with 3.92's, strange. I am with you on the lack of a locking diff on the Rebel. My current truck also has locking front and rear diffs and it is the only hesitation I have in purchasing a Rebel. I depend on the traction I get fully locked to pull a trailer down deep sandy trails. I have never tried this in a truck with out lockers and am worried the Rebel won't do what I need it to do. Unless you have modified your last truck, I assume you had a Power Wagon.
