Differential question

I am considering getting full time locking diff. But I already have the differentials offered by jeep in their off road package. Im not sure if i should get full time locking because i do mostly highway driving and i dont know if they will affect it in any way.

Also if someone could clear up what kind of differntials i am getting from the off road package it would be great.
It says that they are full time locking but i called and they said it kicks in only when the tire slip?? do i have an option of making it locking or not. Or is it some kind of automatic thing that i have no control over? [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: Differential question

Assuming you have a V-6 the rear axle should be an Chryco 8.25 and front should be a D-30 aluminum IFS.Also with the off road package you get the trac-loc rear limited slip diff in the rear only.This works like they said.Only when you lose traction to a rear wheel does it come into play and theoretically transfers power to the wheel with the most traction..A little helper is that you can tighten up your emergency brake a click or two and make both rear wheels drive instead of just the one with the most traction.Just remember to release the e brake before you drive much further or you'll glaze your shoes and drums. If what you do is mostly highway driving and some mild offroading llike firetrails and the like don't bother with the adjustable locker like arb or powertrax as you'll likely never use them.
