    If it's true, it's just another case of F*rd copying something GM has already put on the market...

    GM has been advertising them and how well they make trailering a breeze. Honestly, I recall seeing that both automakers were working on the idea about the same time, GM was quicker to market. There has already been talk on this board about possible swap ideas... see Quadrasteer posts

    I believe GMC had it last year in the Denali pickups, and Chevy came out with it for the 03 model year and have been advertising it.

    Delphi designed the Quadrasteer it and sold it to both companies, GM just implemented it faster. It's kinda cool that they used a D60 for it, I wonder if those stub shafts are the same as the D60F?? From the looks of the axle, it could probably be converted over to a hydraulic setup for trail use very easily... /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thats kinda funny cause I was at an interview today for a job at Delphi and one of the guys said that most people don't realize how many parts they make. Almost every part under the hood of a car these days is made by either Delphi or Bosch. The two Delphi plants here in Rochester make or design vapor canisters, intake manifolds, injectors, fuel rails, fuel pumps, throttle bodies, egr valves, valve train components, and a bunch of other things I can't remember. Ok I'll shut up now /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
