sweet truck! I'm suprised to see the powertrax in a sport truck, why not just go with a limited slip? but i guess it could make sense if you started with an open rear, cause the cost isn't much different, and maybe you even want the chirps around the corners ;)

Seems odd to only lower the rear. I thought most had rear sag. Maybe the ST's have more of a rake and X's have the rear sag.

Went with the powertrax because I did have an open diff and unlike an L.S unit you get 100% equal power to both rears, the PT no slip is also very streetable over other type lockers.
The S.Ts do have a pronounced foreward rake, wanted mine to set level, now it is:)
