    You silly Texan.. you didn't know about the 200 HP electric motor that's hidden in the front differential ??.. just a flip of the switch and it's like kicking in the after burner

    I run with my diff lock and power divider at the same time. Gives me 2x the power than running only one. I'll also lock in all axles.

    Really makes a good truck great.

    Does your truck have a steering wheel? If so, what for?

    Interaxle is what I've normally seen written. Other times it shows a picture with an "X" denoting what's being locked together.

    You are young. I have no knowledge of what modern day fandangled terminology they use on the dash these days.

    Works for me. Strange how the meaning of some words were good for eons. Now everything has to be reworded.
