Kickstand, what did you attempt to add to this thread. I have quite a bit of knowledge on this subject and was attempting to help. Please read what i write before flying off the handle. The internet bullying is old, i don't mean to bother you. I'm just trying to function here. Please leave me alone
You're adding misinformation.

A live axle is a STRAIGHT AXLE that has NO DIFFERENTIAL and constantly spins ie, is under power. The term was then loosely used to describe straight front axles.

What you are describing is a Ranger that does not have any sort of disconnect and the front axle shafts are spinning because there is no sort of locking hub, either automatic or manual.

I am not attempting to add anything to this thread, I am correcting you (again) for using the wrong term to describe something.
