    Today I installed the Powertrax No-Slip in my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD.
    It's a regular open differential.

    The installation, while sometimes challenging for a first-timer, went perfectly. Everything was exactly "by the book." No problemo!!!

    Then came time for the final "test." It failed. PLEASE, can anybody

    Here's what happened:

    To check to see if it's working right, you put the vehicle in gear
    (e.g. "park").

    The wheels won't turn in the same direction at the same time. That's correct.

    If somebody rolls the driver-side wheel until it stops (a couple of
    inches) and holds it against the stop, the passenger-side wheel should
    roll freely in the opposite direction. It should do this in both directions.

    Then, just the opposite. When somebody holds the passenger-side wheel against the stop, the driver's side wheel should turn freely in the opposite direction.

    It doesn't. When somebody holds the passenger-side wheel against the
    stop, and you attempt to rotate the driver-side wheel, the driver-side wheel hits the stop and the PASSENGER side wheel suddenly starts

    Any ideas? I'm utterly exasperated.

    That sounds about right to me, left side slips, diff locks right side
    and visa-versa. Am I missing something? Does it say to test it like
    you did in the manual?
    Remove "X" from email address to reply.
    Ron, is it still working ok. I have a similiar truck.
