I had a Detroit in my CJ5 for about 16 years and another in my Bronco for the past 8 years. I also had a Lock Right in an F-150 for about 9 years. All three functioned like I'm saying.

Oh come on. You edited this. A couple minutes ago it said that you didn't see anything about the tire in the air either. And yes, it doesn't say anything about the 3.5 times, I read that somewhere...

You're wrong though. If you get on the gas in a corner a Detroit is unlocked (because you are turning) so it only gives torque to the tire that's turning the slowest, which is the inside tire. ...

Depends on which '97 F-250 he has. If it's the light duty (looks like a '97 F-150) it probably does have a vacuum line. If it's a heavy duty (looks like the '92-'96 F-series and the '97 F-350) then...

There are two types of limited slips: clutch-type and gear-type. The gear-types (TrueTrac and Torsen are the only two I believe) aren't factory on trucks of this vintage, so I'll only speak to the...

Advantages to EFI: better driveability, better fuel economy, usually better power, typically more reliable, and usually easy to troubleshoot by reading codes. Oh, and lower emissions. In short,...

While I agree that automatic lockers are poor to terrible for towing (and an incredibly terrible idea for towing heavy trailers with zero tongue weight), they do NOT lock "under power". They lock...

That's a good thought. I don't think I've tried that, but I will the next time it happens. I almost never lock the truck so it might take a long time before I figure it out and I might not report...

It's not needed as much with a longer driveshaft. Usually the rear is longer than the front, so that helps there. Also the rear of the t.case usually points down a little, with the front pointing...

I wouldn't worry about driveshafts being the wrong length after a trans swap. I'd just expect it. It's always going to be true. But it only cost me $250 to get two driveshafts shortened, so like I...

??? I've always mounted my spare in the under-bed location with the valve stem down. That's in three different trucks: '85 F-250, '95 F-150 and '97 F-250

No problem leaving the front driveshaft out. And it also lets you put the t.case in 4-low (still only 2WD in your truck obviously) which lets you crawl slower, really nice for backing trailers etc....
