2010/2011/2012 1500 rear end pics?

So I'm reading (on here) about how the 1500 2011s have a different ZF rearend versus the 2010s.

Anyone have a pic of what the ZF rearend or diff cover looks like?

Cuz my 2011 1500 sure looks like all the 9.25s I've had in the past.

Or is it just an internal different of carriers and ring/pinions etc?

I'm assuming maybe some 2011s have the 2010 style rearend, maybe that were early 2011 builds.

They might have replaced the diff. cover after doing the recall for low fluid from the factory. I've heard of them doing this, but mine has the ZF cover.

What does the ZF cover look like?

Mine has the typical 9.25 stop sign shape.

I'm assuming the ZF is totally different shape. Can't see any reason to keep the 9.25 housing and tubes but add different internals.

Or did they design a ZF axle around the 9.25 diff cover to keep us diehard 1500 guys happy? (just kidding)

But dodge does some whacky stuff.

Here's a pic of my ZF axle. It's weird they changed the rearend in 2011 and then changed the front diff in 2012....I don't get it.

Cool thanks.

Thats what mine looks like as well. Sure looks like a Chrysler 9.25 to me.

Interesting stuff. I want to get to the bottom of this.

Yeah thats the old 9.25 diff cover I know and love.

I noticed my diff cover was a little different, but it was obviously a 9.25 axle. Never dawned on me they would change internals.

Thanks guys!

They changed them to save on $$. The 2011 Chrysler copied another company design and didn't do it right hence the bearing issue. They never put in the vent holes to - pressure there for losing oil = losing a bearing. Also were not filling the rear diffs all the way.

There's a metal plug in the back.

Actually there's 2 metal plug. One to fill and one to drain.

Wow a drain plug? Cool.

Much easier than taking the diff cover off.

I'll take the good with the bad. Although having a drain plug doesn't quite even out with not being able to run 4.56s.

Well i think that's what i saw yesterday.

On the back of the pumpkin there's 2 metals plug/screw. I guessed one is to fill and the other to drain. I may be wrong.
