Idk if it's a regional thing or what.

Every K2 I looked at/test drove had a G80.

My 2017 has the G80. I can not wait to replace it with a Truetrac.

I bet the clutch pack went out and that's why it won't lock.

The G80 in my 2017 will spin both wheels up to about 20 or 25 mph. Then disengage. Then only the passenger side will pull.

Confusing post when read with the title.  Perhaps this will help.

Unless something has changed a mini spool allows no slip at all. Wouldn’t be very pleasant for a daily driver.

Exactly. A spool isn't a differential as all.

I really didn't even know the G80 wasn't something they stuck on all the K2s. Even the WTs have them here in Central Florida. It seems to be a standard RPO here.
