    Greetings all;

    In 80s axle code K294 is difflock. But how do you tell if 100s (1998-1999) has a difflock?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am assume you are looking at an axle that has no r&p. I say that becasue it would be very obvious via looking at the dif lock actuator if you were looking at a complete axle.

    Am I missing something?

    I think he's talking about the door tag/plate thingy. There is code (K294) on the 80's that states if it has lockers or not. Which code would he be looking for on a 100?

    YES. I am in the market for 80 or 100 and I do not want to ask the dealer or seller whether it has a difflock or not... I usually ask for a picture of a tag at the door with axle code...

    Thanks bunch guys.

    Why would you just not ask? I do not understand?

    But anyway, I do not know the code or if there is a code. I am driving my 40 today so I cannot go out and look. Sorry

    I guess you could just ask too. But lot of times, like on Ebay for an example, you already have a picture of an axle code along with a VIN. If I knew how to intepret the code, it saves me of calling and emailing them. Not to mention it saves me making a trip down to a dealer just to verify wether it has a locker... It's also just a part of negotiating process when looking and buying LCs... And of course, I've learned from the link below.

    seems to me a pic of the dash would tell the tale

    Anyone can "add" the switch and it still wouldn't have locker.
