The original front differential is a completely open design that does not offer any wheelspin-inhibiting devices. In the middle of the carrier you can see the spider gears that enable the two axles to rotate at different speeds. A front selectable locking differential would be nice, but for the amount of time we spend at low speeds crawling (almost never) the cost couldn't be justified.
