    did the m1009 come with a detroit or any thing else in the rear axle like the m1008 did or is it open?
    looking at buying a m1009 for the tub and frame and would like to kill two birds with one stone as we want to put a locker in the rear at some point in time.

    The infamous Gov-Lock. Or as it's known around here "the ticking time bomb". Actually I've only seen two unit's blow up when we still had CUCV's, but then we didn't "wheel" them too hard.
