So that was a bit over my head. I think I understand open differential...that makes one wheel move. What is the difference between limited slip and posi and which would be best for my application of light towing and light plowing?
Also, how hard is it to install a new differential? I'm new to trucks but I'm pretty good with auto repair and maintenance.
