No, not true. The locking differential is included in the MAX trailering package or on its own. It is not a standard feature of the z71 package, although the z71 package has changed many times over the past 10 - 15 years. I've owned a new 2000, 2005, and now a 2009 and the locking differential was never part of the z71, or trailer pkg. for any of the those years. It was, however, an added extra for just a hair below $300.

I also traded in a 2WD F150 with a 6" RCD lift and 35"s. I will be the first to admit that it was lifted for looks and not function. To each his own...

What most people don't realize is that your tires are just as important (if not more) than true 4 wheel drive. 4 wheel drive is going to help you go forward--that is about it. Tires will help you go forward, corner, stop, etc.
Having said that, I have heard a few people in my time say their 2 wheel drive will go where a 4 wheel drive will go. Yet they always back down when someone challenges them lol.
