Just go ahead and get a PowerTrax No-Slip rear differential, sends power to the wheel spinning the least (most traction)... unlike the open diff you have now which sends it all to the one spinning the fastest. Ive found them for only about $350 and they are pretty easy to install yourself.
Thanks for the advice. I was at the stealership yesterday, and they had quoted $1K for the parts alone!
Where did you get the kit for $350, if you don't mind my asking?
Stocker: correct on the station wagon statement, and I wish I could get new, but with a 3-row redesign coming in 05' (or so is my understanding) and current funds available, its not prudent for us to buy now. And thank you for the howdy-do!
Follow up question: does the high torque of the 4.0L at idle make winter driving more difficult, or is it still pretty manageable?
