    I pick up my new truck today ^^ but i was driving it home, about 25miles, and i noticed the the rear diff lock was pressed on, then i noticed blinking light indicating the rear diff lock. It was blinking, not on. I dont fucking know why it was on, the dealer bitch didnt tell me it was on.

    I just want... need!.. to know if i didnt screw up something :(:(:( I dont want my lock breaking prematuerly...


    Edit: Well i gtg back to work. Ive researched it a bit and it seem i really never had it completely locked. So that makes me feel better.
    I want to know what you guys have to say cause ur the best ^^

    You're fine if it was blinking it was not engaged. The light is solid when the locker is engaged. If you have a 4wd truck then the locker also can not be engaged unless the truck is in 4 lo in stock configuration.

    you think thats bad? me and my wife were test driving a truck. the sales guy drove off the lot to a nearby parking lot. apparently he had somthing that didnt agree with him for lunch and decided he would do a little crop dusting on the way around the back of the truck to the passenger seat.
    unfortunatly it followed him and stunk up the while fing truck! he rolled the window down and it wasnt not a warm day. nobody said a word but my wife in the back seat was thinking the same as me and i got blamed for it afterwords! i was like hell no that wasnt me!
    needless to say we didnt buy THAT truck!
    he didnt even excuse himself! i mean seriously, the cat was already out of the bag, he could have at least apologized!
