Everyone has different needs and reasons. I live in a rugged, mountainous region where we get snow as early as October and as late as April. It can easily snow 2 - 3 feet in a 24 hour period (and it has). Some of the major highways are covered in snow & ice for for months and if you are not doing at least 60 mph (or faster) you'll have a big semi blow by you, peppering your vehicle with the crushed rock the highway crews refer to as "sand" and knock out your windshield. One highway was only completed in the 1980s because it snowed so much, the Government didn't considered it possible to keep it open during the winter.the text over your avatar does say Sr member !
but with that said i have the E-lock rear and i dont like the fact that it locks solid and spins the inside tire whenever you turn
i am just fine with it unlocking at 25 mph plus i know if i am driving in the snow it will not allow both tires to spin and put me into a slide
if it was up to me i would rather have the E-lock on the front end
In the summer, I can also go on about the gazzilion miles of back roads in the back country...some you can't take too fast, others you can easily hit 45-50mph.
These are reasons I bought a 4WD truck in the first place. I would have preferred an LS but I was explained the "E-Locker on the Ford F150 is as good as an LS". Unfortunately, I already had a chance to try it on some backroads, and the E-Locker kicking out at 25mph and becoming an "open diff" caused unwanted wheel spin where I was travelling.
I was hoping someone here was aware of a "fix or modification" to make our trucks work like the Raptor and they either had done it or knew someone who had done it. Especially, when Ford doesn't have these same limitations on the Raptor.
I guess what I want is a Raptor with the Ecoboost engine.
