There are several rear end setups for these trucks. Some with limited slips, and some without, even within the same gear set. That being said, one of two things is happening. Either your rear end is high-mileage and the clutches in the limited slip are all but gone, or your rear end setup is a factory open differential. If the clutches are gone, they're only about $150, and if the rear end is open, then the world is your oyster. Anything from mechanical automatic lockers (Detroit) to electronic selectable lockers (Ected) to just an aftermarket limited slip (True-Trac). Just depends on how much you want to spend.

Easy way to find out.

Block the front wheels, Put truck in N, Do Not Put the parking brake on.

Then Jack up the diff of the truck so both rear tires are off the ground.
Now spin one tire. If the other tire goes the same way its a posi... Limited slip. This was will work even if your clutchs are really worn which would be at fault for the one tire fire.


Now if the other tire goes in the opposite direction your diff is open. Simple as that.
