    Does Dodge still produce Ram 2500 with a straight axle? What is the history on these and were there production years with better systems (snow plow use) than others?

    they are still straight axles 94 and up they werent all that great, went through alot of front end parts (ball joints, trac bars), it was some vaccuum actuated thing and that actuator goes bad sometimes, and they dont have locking hubs they have hub bearings that arent serviceable
