Want traction to BOTH rear wheels...

'04 F250 CC - I do not currently have a LS rear differential, or at least my truck doesn't act like it. I would like to upgrade to LS. I tow about half the time.

2 questions - What's a good LS rear diff I can install myself, and does the LS feature work in reverse also?

Thanks for any assistance.

Thanks, Raul. Are both of those equally easy to install? I recently did my own EGR delete, which was time-consuming (for me) but not particularly difficult. It is my understanding that some of the rear diffs require special tools for measuring "lash" or something like that???

+1 on the Tru-Trac. My brother-in-law put one on his a couple years ago and that thing is NICE! If my LS didnt work as well is it did this would be on my wish list.
