E-Lock

So I am at the dealer yesterday and the salesmen were telling me that the E-Locking tranny wasn't limited slip when it wasn't locked. He basically said it was always locked.

I guess I am confused. I was under the impression that when it wasn't locked the rear end was LSD and only locked when selected.

So whats the deal. Am I off base?

Nope, with an electric locker its either open, or locked up. I dont know what activates the E-locker though.

Cant have the best of both worlds (E-locker + LSD).

So if its open it is a non slip diff just not locked? I thought the E-Lock was activated by pulling the 4x4 knob.

Take off in slippery conditions, the power will transfer from one wheel to the other as the TRACTION CONTROL transfers power from the wheel w/o traction. The E-Lock IS activated by pulling the 4x4 knob, activated it will leave tire marks in the asphalt if you take a sharp turn, the rear end is truly locked. Make no mistake, Powerstroke.Org is where the questions get answered... salesmen? Will tell you that you can drive 500 miles on DEF if you run out of diesel....true story!!!!

Awesome! Thats what I thought! Thanks! You would think the guys in Commercial/Fleet sales would have a clue since they are selling mostly all super duty chassis trucks. Oh well.

I've driven chevy's all my life and they have the limited slip(posi tract.) rear, then went to a hummer with the e-lock...so I knew when I bought this '11, it had to have the e-lock rear. For situations that you actually need traction, a true locker trumps limited slip.
