LSD's are still available (if you look carefully) for these diffs. There was most probably one retro fitted at some point and the sticker put on the housing for the benefit of service personnel. Whether it's still there would be interesting to know, but unfortunately it doesn't behave like a locker when you have the wheels off the ground, so difficult to tell without taking out the 3rd member. You could try putting one side rear wheel on a roller of sorts or into some slippery mud and with just the rear axle engaged, see if the other side wheel drives you forward.
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

No harm can come if you use Lsd oil. Sticks a bit more. Go for Lsd 90 or Lsd 125 if you drive a lot.
