Limited slip?

So I went out wheelin last night, in the snow, and I was backing up(the first time)when I heard a "click,click" noise. I thought it was coming from the front but my buddies said that they saw both wheels(in back) spinning when one didn't have grip and the other did. I usually don't trust until I find out for myself. So does this qualify for being limited slip? The "tech" at the dealer said that some come stock with posi and others didn't. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Re: Limited slip?

Yep, some did, and some didn't.
Check the dif cover, if it's got the trash lock, it'll have 2 tags, one for ratio, one for limited slip telling you to use an additive.
You can always take the cover off, the carrier is different.


You had to do what to fit those little tires?
I'm sure glad I own a CJ!

Re: Limited slip?

yeah you might find a little metal tag on one of the diff cover bolts that says something like "limited slip additive required". Put the transmission in neutral and jack up both tires. Turn one tire. If the other tire spins the opposite direction you have an open differential, and if it spins the same direction you have a posi or a locker.
