stop messing around with vacuum systems..

posi lock your truck and forget about your 4wd not working anymore..

I had issues, but it wouldn't work in either range.. period... so I did the above, and never looked back

Does the system you describe still turn the front driveline in 2wd like the 2002's do? I kinda like being able to dis-engage the driveline

No it does not. It just replaces the vacuum actuated system with a mechanical system.
