axle options for 2011 F250?
First post from a new user!
I'm considering placing an order for a 2011 F250, and I'm trying to figure out the axle options. I see:
* 3.31 Non-Limited Slip Axle Ratio
* 3.31 Electronic Locking Axle Ratio
My current truck (2005 Toyota Tundra) has a mechanical limited slip differential, and I love it. It's great in the winter when the roads are snowy/icy in patches, but with bare spots of dry pavement. It's also great when moving a trailer in/out of a site in hilly/wet/muddy/slippery conditions.
A locked rear axle is not a replacement for a limited-slip differential. Is the electronic locker axle a mechanical LSD axle when unlocked? Or is there simply no mechanical LSD option on these trucks?
Edit: I found a 2011 order guide PDF which indicates that Ford only provides mechanical LSD options for the F350 DRW and F450 trucks, and only in 3.73 and 4.30 axle ratios.
