    No.

    They will have either the open dif or a Trac-Lok.

    was the difference if it was equipped with a traction devise or not would that depend on the m1008 or the m1028? versions

    or some other fluke factor?

    I was told the CUCV 1 tons with TH400's only had a Detroit in the rear axle. The CUCV 1 tons with the SM465's had a Trac Lok in the front as well as the Detroit in the rear.

    Heard that either here or on orc/Chevy, but several people agreed on it.

    i did not know they came with a 4 spd....everyone that i have seen has been auto...other people have told me that they were all autos in the chevy trucks

    the m1028 were lifted versions of the m1008 that were supposed to have lockers front and rear. some m1028 were duallys but others were not

    here is were i read this http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Highway/3969/cucvmodels.htm

    I seriously doubt the military ever had lifted CUCV's. Heck, the most aggressive tires I ever saw on one in my 4 years in the Marines were some crappy AT's./forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    The stick CUCV's are rare. I saw one, and over a hundred of the regular TH400 tranny CUCV's./forums/images/icons/cool.gif Main reason being that most people going into the military do not know how to drive a stick, so they don't feel like wasting time teaching Private Shmoe how to drive a stick. Not to mention the chance of Private Shmoe forgetting how to use a clutch when under fire and getting aced would be a problem./forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

    Every CUCV I have seen with locked front and rear axles was a th400/208 or th400/205 combo. The 400/205 is rare in them also. My D60 has the trac lok and it is from a auto truck.

    CUCV SPECS

    http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/Highway/3969/cucvmodels.htm

    All of the models have a positive traction type rear axle, GM 14 bolt full floating on all except the M1009, which has a GM 10 bolt axle. Front axles are Dana 60 models on all except the M1009, which has a GM 10 bolt axle. The M1028 and M1031 series have positive traction type front axles.
