Other than the obvious...spinning the tires and watching... how can I find out if I got the limited slip rear axle? I have a Sport 4x4 so I'm thinking not from what my research tells me but....

Is there a sure fire way to find out other than window sticker (which has gone missing in my house)?

Check the window sticker. It will list the standard gear ratio/axle and if there was an optional one put on, it will be listed as an option.

LSD starts at 3.92 gears.

Crawl under the truck and there is a sticker on the axle. It will have the ratio printed on it. I have 3.55's w/o LSD and at the bottom of the sticker it has "3.55". As Rootbeer said, if you have 3.92's, then you have LSD.

Does the Sport not come standard with the 3.92 LSD?

Where abouts is this sticker? On the diff housing or the axle itself? My "options sheet" from the dealer says "Anti-spin" rear axle. Is this what they decided to call limited slip?

Yup, that's LSD. I just couldn't remember the wording they used when I answered last night. It should also say what the gear ratio is like 3.92, 4.10, etc.

Excellent! Even though it's just a LS, it's still much better than an open; especially in the snow and ice. Mud, not so much...she's just gonna come open but...helps with a bit of initial "launch" still.

I have 3.92 LS on this one and had LS on the 2004 sport. I think it is a big difference in deep snow.
