I haven't messed around with the capacitors in PCMs, but from what I remember from circuits classes back in college you probably need to match (not exceed) the capacitance rating when you buy your...

I will jokingly type J**p, Ch*vy, D*dge, etc, given that this is a Ford site. Then again, I'll also type F*rd when I'm on the J**p Cherokee forum. That's all in fun. But I've never had any brand...

Iím not sure what you are saying here. It sounds like you are saying that lunchbox lockers disengage any time a wheel is trying to go faster than the ring gear. If so, then I agree with you 100%. ...

Obviously your's, because mine is right :)



My Jeep, F-150 and Bronco all did / do the same thing. But it's NOT because the Detroit locks under power, it's because you are putting all of the...

OK, I finally bothered to look up what the manufacturer says about Detroit lockers. I don't know where Briansshop got his quote, but what I found is completely different, but says exactly what Phy...

That's not how it worked in your Jeep because that's not how Detroits work. They can certainly be harder on tires because they are usually putting the torque to one tire (open diffs always put equal...

It's kind of like a ratchet. And they can definitely sound like one.

They do function the same in forward and reverse. Also whether driving or compression braking (which is really important when...

And to be fair to Sales people, the Detroit literature that Briansshop quoted isn't WRONG, it's just not right. Detroit lockers do function essentially like a spool in that they positively drive...

No, I don't know better than the engineers who designed it. But engineers rarely write sales literature. If we did, it would be like my long posts and customers would go away. The Sales people...

I've had a couple of mats (including my current truck) They are best for keeping stuff from sliding (in my experience anyway), and they stay put for me. They do get crap under them, and they don't...

I know this is old, but i just read through this and it sounds like you haven't done anything with it yet. I would definitely steer you away from a locker. I've had lockers in a CJ5, a...
