    i was wondering if it would make much difference in pulling if i put a trd rear end on my truck or maybe a locker. does it really make that much difference in pulling with a 2wd. thanks for any replies

    getting there....
    with a locker...of any sort really, traction is way better then an open diff, but only in offroad type terrain...not on a normal road or snow. lockers are great. of course, an lsd is best for normal driving.

    Changeing to a different gear ratio would help the best. Your truck should ahave a Gear code on the door sticker. Take a pick of the sticker, and we can tell ya what gears you currantly have, and help with what may be best. :)

    Just a quick testament to the value of a locker. This morning I needed to back a 16' trailer up a slight hill in my back yard, over slightly damp grass with clay soil. 2wd wouldn't budge it, due to tire spin. Tried 4wd. Same thing. Then 4wd low range and kicked in the locker. She moved right up the hill with no complaints.
