Do I need the anti spin differential?

I am looking at a new truck and one of the ones I am considering has all the bells and whistles but it missing limited slip. Should this be a deal breaker? I live in a area that does get quite a bit of snow, I will not be using this truck for 4wheeling just for recreation and fishing nothing to crazy
Thanks wayne

I personally wouldn't get one without a limited slip. These trucks are very nose heavy and need all the rear end traction they can get. If you ever plan on modding later down the road you'll kick yourself for not getting it now. It's not just offroading that it comes in handy. It would be a deal breaker for me.

I wont buy one without it. It can be added, Dodge sells over the counter. But its cheaper to add when ordering it. I made a few items known on what I wanted when I ordered my truck. LSD was one of the requirements.

Its a good LSD, the best one offered in a pickup, IMHO, and I would get it.

If they want the deal they may install it for the cost of the option?

I can't believe they would even build a truck without LSD. They finally got smart and made it standard equipment on the 3500 dually's.

My Dodge 1500 was the first truck I'd ever owned with a LSD. Man, what a difference!!! That trucks goes in the snow like nothing else I've ever owned. I wouldn't be without one. If it's not in the truck now you can add it. Get the dealer to put one in for you or get an aftermarket model. It doesn't have to be a deal breaker, just a bargaining point.

Yes, you want it. At the end of the day though, these trucks do not have a lot of the drivetrain safety features that other vehicles have, and this truck has a lot of torque. Don't expect the truck to be the safest vehicle in the world during the winter time. Doesn't matter what kind of tires you put on it.

I guess you could pick one up in the Aftermarket like an Eaton, ARB or Yukon, but you're probably looking at a grand plus install. See what the dealer will do for you, they may be willing to work something out to get the sale.

Mine doesnt have it and I wish it did, you can make it work without it, but the anti spin is well worth it.

Thanks guys that's what I though just needed confirmation. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. I try to live by that rule but it always cost more money
