even with an open differential, you get enough traction with your left side to get out of most circumstances

When your right wheel starts to spin in mud or snow, you can apply just enough BRAKE force to stop that wheel from spinning, while holding the brake pedal in that same position, apply the throttle slowly & give it just enough brake to keep that wheel from spinning. The rear differential will then Transfer traction to the left side & you can usually pull yourself out.
Try it for yourself, if you have an open differential, it works on both cars & trucks

Of course the LSD is better, you don't have to do the pedal dance,
