One wheel peg leg?

Do these trucks really not have some type of posi factory? I was in some light mud yesterday and had the drivers rear wheel spinning but not the passenger side? That really disappoints me. Now i gotta buy some type of posi front and rear. Recommendations?

Your truck does look good, but I'm glad to hear you ain't scared to get it dirty As for the one tire fire situation, mine does the same thing alot on the road (doing burnouts). In the mud it spins both tires pretty good, but still not all the time. I've had the diff cover off and it does indeed have a factory limited slip, it just doesn't work good lol.

Ford's Trac-Loc is a limited slip unit with clutches that will and do wear out. Also if one wheel totally looses traction you are FUBAR because it is not a locker. Sounds like you have the Trac-Loc. If you had an open rear it would have been the passenger side spinning.

How long should the clutches last? How hard is it to change them? $$$?

Try changing the diff fluid, ford uses a pretty heavy dose of friction modifier in it.

I'll try some new diff fluid since it's cheap and easy. Otherwise I'm gonna have to put something better back there. Thinking of an ARB or Elocker for the front but I want posi in the back also.

I bought this to replace my last hunting rig, a 1992 Yukon 2Dr 4x4 with the whole exterior line-x'd. I already scratched the roof. Told everyone I scraped it on the rough bottom of a cloud. LOL. I bought her to use and I do. If I scratch it up I'll repaint it or Line-x it. Had 3 bloody deer in the bed in the last week. I got two and my girl got her first this morning. Freezer is fillin' up!
