Default Posi Lock 4x4 engagement system install

I installed the 4x4 Posi Lock system on my 96 Ram 1500 today. Install was easy with some basic tools. The vacuum actuated system is history and the Posi Lock works great. I would recommend this to anyone with a vacuum actuated system, it is very heavy duty and when you engage the 4wd, you know it is in 4wd because you can see the axles and how they function during the install.

Awesome. The PosiLock system has proven to be a great fix for the vacuum actuated transfer cases.

Had a posi lok in my 89 worked awesome... Just make sure you engage it before getting stuck... Dont wait until you are stuck to engage it into 4wd or you will be screwed. The truck needs to move forward slightly while engaging the transfer case in order to mesh the gears...
