I have to disagree. I have two Rams, one LSD and on open. The LSD feels so much better off road, on wet pavement, and snow. I dont know how you can say open is better for snow as you will not slide sideways. lol LSD only kick in when you start sliding sideways or are losing grip to one tire. IF you dont believe me argue your point to the guys at offroad international or torsion. Limited slip is second best option for traction and sliding only to lockers.
