Electronic locking Diff

I want to know how the Elec Diff works I cant find a button dial or anything looked in the owners guide, and nothing. I could ask the dealer but they were just a bunch of %#*(@!( car salesman . I dont know if I trust the service dept. I hope I get a customer satisfaction survey from Ford

When pulled out...it locks the rear diff until about 40 mph, dis engages then will re engage at 40...try turning on asphalt with it engaged and BOTH tires will turn at the same speed meaning you WILL know as one tire binds under traction, then releases... it is handy on soft dirt, keeps you out of 4x4...

Yes it works in 2wd. I used it in a refinery in St. Charles LA to get out of some mud. I actually started to put in 4wd and then decided to try the locker first and it worked great. You could feel the difference with both tires grabbing and not one spinning. Got out of the mud no problem.

It's also great leaving the car wash and heading down the road sideways for awhile!!!!

I had a 75 Trans Am with a posi Trac in Seattle, used to powerbrake and do slow 180's when wanting to get out of traffic in wet weather... have NOT tried this in the 1 ton!!!
