    Well, I got underneath the Jeep today to check for that green sticker that tells whether an open diff or a trac loc diff is installed. Mine said "Open Diff". I was hoping, but whaddayagonnado. :-({|=

    Well, you can get PowerTrax which are better than the factory limited slips. I been thinking about getting one of these.

    Summit Racing sells them:

    PWT-92-0382-2905 Open Diff

    PWT-92-0382-2925 Lmt Slip Diff

    Limited slip

    I found one on e-bay; had it installed locally (04 Liberty). Total cost was about $100 for part and $250 for install. Works great for my purposes. Some think the LS requires a different differential, but that does not seem to be the case.

    Ive got a powertrax and really like it. I dont think I could have driven to half the places I've been even on minor logging trails without it (I'm still on the SRA tires).

    I did the install, took ~8 hours -- first time inside a rear dif \:D/

    Axle Sticker

    It is on the left end of the rear axle, lime green with black printing. Very easy to see.
