Yes. Still is truly "one wheel" drive, meaning the power goes to the tire with the least traction. Turning in 4wd on dry pavement will cause binding due to the outside wheel turning a larger radius while the inner wheel tries to pivot at a slower speed.Thanks everyone for your input. When the 4x4 is engaged will the front axle work the same?
Having had drag cars with spools (locked rear), it just wouldn't work. You can push a car with a spool in a straight line but as soon as you try to turn it, you better have some help pushing and you can hear the tires scrubbing as it turns.Thanks everyone for your input.

No it doesn't and you don't need it.Thanks FBH. I don't believe the Ranger has an option for an e-lock on the front diff?
I know, it sucks. Ford's ESOF is known to have issues after a few years and then you have to lock in the hubs manually. Many Super Duty owners convert to a manual set up once they need to service the hubs.My bad. You are correct. I just remember having to get out in horrible conditions to lock the hubs.
