    Howdy fellas,

    Heres the question:

    The rear axle is open unless I engage the difflock. Got that.

    However, if I disable VSC I get a dashlight indicating 'Auto LSD'.

    Does ALSD really work or is it some fluff?


    If it works, I basically have the capabilities of three diffrent axles right?

    Thanks!

    Mike

    auto lsd works, drives me nuts in the dirt, can't slide or anything with it on. i turn it completely off when in the dirt, just hold the button you turn everything off, you will get the car symbol with the lines behind it.

    Ahah! Hold down the VSC button to turn off the ALSD.

    Tried it and it works!

    Amazing truck!
