    So my friend in Colorado were talking about my truck {moving there in 2 months} and he thought I only had 1 wheel peel. 2 years ago when my dumb @ss was running low profile ZR rated bald tires in a snow storm people who helped me get un-stuck confirmed both wheels are spinning. So the question is...Do I have posi or limited slip or something else? My truck is an 05' AC SR5 5-speed manual.

    alot of metal, small engine, decent travel.
    caged, camburg long travel, 50t leafpack (soon to be installed) light rack over cab, 5pt harnesses etc
    1 wheel peel im pretty sure, since you were in snow i dont think there was enough stress on the tires to make it so only one spins

    +1. One tire may also have been spinning significantly slower too...just hard to notice.

    Since you have a 4 banger you have an open diff. Even open diffs will spin both tires depending on the situation.

    ALSD became standard in 2009. Real LSD is better for street driving.

    It's an 89 Toyota Pickup. I got some stuff done to it.. FJ axles going under it soon.
    Under the right load a open diff will lock up.

    You should get a locker..yeah sure it chirps in corners, and eats tires away some..but if you live in the snow, it'll work so much better then a gay f00kin lsd.
