I have always been told and been under the impression that if you had an open
rear end in your truck and you had the rear wheels off the ground if you spin a
tire by hand the other will turn in an opposite direction.
If you had a posi or limited slip of some kind both tires would turn in the
Is this true??
I tested it with my Tj with trac loc and sure enough both turn the same way,
open the rear to change fluid clutches ok
In the 99 tahoe the tires turn opposite.... Ihave my window sticker I paid for
Open the cover to change fluid... see clutch packs, looks like a posi.
There is no tag for modifier or anything on the cover, I am the origional
Is it wrong about the tire rotation, or am I missing something??
any ideas?? advice

There is a difference between a limited slip and a locker rear. Maybe
you have the locker. What is the code in your glove compartment say?
Others can comment on this who know more about it. I checked my
locker on ice and it definately locks up when one wheel starts
No, you aren't missing anything, other then that the Eaton locker
in your truck doesn't have the same kind of preload on the clutch
packs as the one in your Jeep probably has. The Eaton locker
applies when you have enough of a difference in wheel speed
to force the governer mechanism to ramp up the pressure on
the clutch packs. So if you turn the rear wheels slowly on your
truck, it will act like an open diff. If you turn them a little faster,
you will feel the clutches engage.
