ARB now makes a selectable air locker for the AMA 11.5 Randy's ring and pinion has them for something just over 1K. I was actually looking into them for my truck.

I have a stock limited slip rear end and I am not very happy with the performace. I like the idea of a selectable locker. That way when you are on the road the rear end is open and you maintain very good road manners.

Umm I am pretty sure that at least model year 2009, limited slip was standard equipment, not an option. Anyway, these rearends handle slip differently then previous. No clutches. Personally I don't think they work as well as the old clutch style but oh well.

Yep they make one for the front as well and I think that is in the neighborhood of $800.

If you still have the factory make and model of tires, that will have a lot to do with traction in the mud and on the street for that matter. I noticed it was so bad that i would have to engage 4wd in wet grass with the stockers.

yup, the Dana limited slip locks much better than the AAM's do. In fact, my Dana axel on my 2000 ram used to hop around corners 2% of the time, and that was just going around easy.

I truly miss those axles. Does anyone know how an easy way to make the AAMs behave the same?

you might check and see if someone makes a "lunchbox" or 'aussie" type locker for an AAM. That wil ltighten it up and they are not expensive or difficult to put in.
