GVM Upgrade Specifications

 

The JMACX GVM kit not only strengthens the diff but also the rear wheel hubs and bearings are upgraded to suit the increase in load carry capacity. The rear wheel bearing area and wheel bearing itself is the major issue. Extra engineering for SSM (Second Stage Manufacture) is included in the GVM upgrade. The premium suspension solution includes JMACX’s signature Alpha Shocks, high quality coils and high pressure in coil airbags providing 2 inches in the rear and levelling in the front.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I just apply the QLD 10% GVM upgrade by re-rating my axle?

No, you cannot exceed the manufacturer’s axle load rating under the QLD 10%.  You can increase your GVM in QLD by approximately 7% based on factory axle load ratings.

Can I just add bracing to the factory diff?

Bracing still leaves the diff with an inherent weakness as it stops at the backing plate and is well before the compromised bearing. Bracing the factory diff does not resolve the point of failure, but can increase the impact on the loading point of the bearing due to stiffening of that rear housing.  See below for failure example.

  Failure for RAM 1500 wheel bearing area

Can I get a GCM upgrade on my RAM 1500DT?

JMACX will not provide a GCM increase in addition to your GVM increase on the RAM 1500 DT due to excessive loading on the chassis.  There is plenty of evidence demonstrating this failure in the current market.

 

DIFFERENTIAL OPTIONS

 

OPTION 1: MODIFIED DIFF HOUSING OPTION

The engineers at JMACX have developed a procedure of modifying the end of the tube, welding on a thicker tube axle and a full float bearing hub assembly. This allows for larger wheel bearings to cope with the additional axle load. Internally, the diff is strengthened by a full inner tube. Full floating bearings offer greater handling of larger loads. The JMACX diff upgrade increases the axle capacity to 2500kg.

OPTION 2: MODIFIED DIFF HOUSING OPTION PLUS NEW AIRLOCKER

In addition to the modified diff housing as above in option 1, with new fitted upgraded diff bearings, and new air locker.  ***Air locker availability TBC***

OPTION 3: NEW JMACX REPLACEMENT 9” DIFF HOUSING

The JMACX 9” diff option with air locker is the ultimate choice, as the strongest diff available. With bigger gear sets, upgraded parts and with the longest warranty. With a factory replacement diff close to $24,000, the 9” JMACX diff represents quality and value.

***Note: All RAM DS diff upgrades are on an undamaged core exchange basis where your factory diff is exchanged for a modified or new replacement differential.***
