alright im looking at a pari of detriots for my f-150. My question is how do they work on pavement, i havnt seen anything that seems to say they are deactivateable. I just whant to make shure i can opperate them as an open diff if i whant to.

You will nor be "deavacting" a detroit. Detroits are full time lockers they will ratchet around a corner but there is no turning them on and off. If you want have a full locker at the push of a button and a open diff when you want get an ARB.

If you want a locker that works like an open diff, and you barely even need a locker anyway, put in an arb and dont even hook up the lines.
Detroits are fine on the street. they are different than an open diff, but nothing bad.. lifted trucks dont drive as well anyway.. so it is just one more thing...

Better than a spool on road by a long shot.

actually i was leaning towards a detroit becouse they have a reputaition and ill be mud racing too. But as long as it will have some roadablity its good becouse this truck will never be a trailer queen.

In the read, it is almost always going to be engaged, unless you take turns really slow. Lots of screeching around corners if your giving it gas.

In the front, on he road, I dont know, cuz I've never driven with one on the road in 4wd

Detriot does have the electrac though... Thats deactivatable

I got a Detroit in the rear and a Tru-Trac in the front, and it drives on the road fine. I would recommend that setup for anybody that uses their truck as a daily driver.
