    99' Ram 2500 6l Turbo Diesel

    -2x4 w/ Open Diff :-( , 5 speed, very few options

    99' Real-Lite Pop-up Truck Camper

    -w/ Bathroom & Shower!!!

    '07 Infiniti G35

    -Not Very Stock

    The open differential really bugs me. I'm hoping new wheels will reduce wheel spin on that truck. I'll get 12mpg as shown and about 16mpg without the camper.

    I'm still working on where to bolt down D-rings (really I know where just to lazy to go and do it). I need to mount a spare tire on the trailer somewhere rather than carry it in the camper.

    The guy I bought the camper from took out the 2-way fridge (it better have been broke) and put in a regular 120v mini fridge so thats high on the list to replace. One smart thing the previous over did was mount an A/C between the camper and the truck bed, that works great! He did a poor job of cutting a hole in the camper but my dad and I made it look a little better and built a 'drawer' that'll hold the weight of the A/C and make it really easy to slide in and out.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Seems like throwing a locker in there wouldn't be doable. If it's anything like my Camaro, merely swapping the carrier doesn't require that you re-set the gears.

    One thing to think about with the open diff, it might not be such a bad thing while towing. If you spin a tire with an open diff you maintain directional stability. If both tires break loose with the trailer attached it could get pretty sketchy...

    Good Point - perhaps one of those air-locking or electrically-locking diffs? I know there are a couple of companies out there than make them.

    That should say "would be doable". In other words it should be a reasonably simple swap.
