It's not supposed to stay locked up in the sand. On the pavement both of your tires are getting pretty good traction so each will slip some, an open diff wouldn't be much different. If you really try and spin them you will only get one spinning.

LS is not a locker and when one tire can get low traction, like in the sand, you will get a single wheel spinning easily.

None of the LS diffs available in pickups work well. The lockers from chevy do very well. Aftermarket lockers do very well. LS will always be for those that don't NEED both tires working.
