HI guys, i'm planning to do some off road near home on my Durango. I have a 2006 limited HEMI 4x4 with the NV244 transfer case, and feels pretty strong.
I did some research online but i haven't found an answer, i'd like to know if my D has open, limited slip or even a torsen differential in rear to be aware about what it can or can't do, like mudding. As i understand there are 4 types of diffs
-Open: The power gets to the wheel with less resistance, so if one wheel is on the air and has no traction, that wheel gets all the power and i'll get stuck. best for street and Highway.
-Limited Slip (LSD): Has a clutch sistem inside that send some power from the wheel with no traction to the other, making both wheels move but allos to move different speed too.
-Lock or Locked: Has a mechanical system that locks both wheels making them spinn like a single piece. Best for off road, Used in aftermarket Jeeps.
-Torsen: Basically an open diff with an electronic system that sense when a wheel is spinning, and appllies the brake to this one to simulate some traction and send power to the other one. Used in Hummers and Land Rovers.
After that, i'm not sure wich one is standar in my Durango 4x4 (no locked, i know this) as she has sensor in every wheel, and the permanent AWD. Any ideas will be apreciated, i wanna have some fun but donīt wanna spend the night stucked
Oh, and please correct me if i understand wrong.
