Rear Differential

How do I know if my rear diff is limited-slip, and if it is does it need some additive plus the oil?
Thanks

First of all, it would help to know a little bit more about your vehicle. You might want to create a signature profile. Year, model, engine, tires, mods, etc. would all be very useful.

Don't take me as the foremost authority on the matter, but I think that the rear diff on '95 YJ's was open. I could be wrong though; you should wait for someone else's word...

Sorry I couldn't be any more help.

I don't know about your 95 but if I recall correctly when I bought my 93 it was a factory option. Mine didn't have it and it would spin all the power out one wheel without the slightest hesitation.

In any case, I would recommend using a synthetic lube in the diff. I know if you use Amsoil AGR or TGR it will not only offer better performance than a conventional lube but you don't have to use the friction modifier. If you use a conventional lube, you will have to add a friction modifier or LSD additive.
