2011 Ram 3500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

2011 Ram 3500 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 3500's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Ram, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 3500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2011 Ram 3500 to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Ram's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
