you can probably thank the bean counters...

i do have another comments... doesn't a LSD usually kick to the side on icy roads... where as an open diff won't kick to the side since only one wheel will be spinning????

Kicking to the side is exactly what the open differential does on slippery roads. Climbing hills is like pulling teeth.
but to kick sideways that means you need to lose traction on both wheels and spin them... that's exactly NOT what an open differential does... on an open diff. as soon as one wheel loses traction the other wheel loses power and just sits there... holding the car in place... so it'd doesn't kick sideways..
