Got some formatting issues on yer post there.....

$100,000 dollar question....

Does it have the front and rear factory locking differentials?
(little dial to the left of the steering column)

Very sorry regarding the formatting issues. Not sure what the heck happened there. Of course the last software classes I had was cobalt and fortran in the mid 70s and required IBM punch cards. The series 80 does not have the factory locker option.
