Is the rear diff in the 2WD SE limited slip? This is just a question of curiousity.
Great info, thanks!Armada said:Any time.
BTW, a good limited slip that lets you send power to both rear tires is frequently better than a 4x4 with open differentials. That is because with open diffs like most 4x4's have, only the right rear and the left front receive power, even when 4wd is engaged. Most people don't know that only two wheels are pulling. With those systems four wheel drive is really a misnomer.
Serious off roaders modify their trucks by putting locking diffs in the rear (they are not highway friendly) and either limited slips or electric or air lockers in the front. I have a playtoy Jeep CJ5 set up that way.
I'd rather have a truck with a limited slip or true locker in the rear than a 4x4 with open diffs.
You should probably keep your VDC on also when in the snow, as it can correct a multitude of bad things that can happen when your steering wheel is pointed one way but the tires are not doing the same thing as your steering input is telling them.
