Yes I have heard of doing that with open rears as well. Lightly touch your brake pedal or lighly put on the emergency brakes.

So I have tried those things and found them to not really make much difference.

I only tried it once, i would have to agree. when you are stuck enough a limited slip has no effect, you are really really stuck

Because it would depend on which wheel receives more braking...

An open diff with a locker is best.

i agree with the other guy. locking diff is useless on the road. you would rip out the gears as your tires are always on cleared pavement and would not slip.

not to mention the ford ones are annoying as you have to get out, dig threw hte snow/mud to lock them. newer ones might be electronic.

locking with limited slip would be best. dunno if it exists tho

Hey Tom,
I sent you a PM asking you to ID these NJ dealers, but I guess you didn't see it. $10K is a big mark-down, and I might be able to take advantage or it. So if possible, would you share that information with me?
