Jack the entire rear end off the ground and then spin the wheel. If the opposite side spins the same direction it is a limited slip. If it spins the other way it is open.

k i checked the tag didnt say lsd on the tag the gear ratio was 3.9 so im guessing it is a lsd, i just dont think it is tho because ive never seen a lsd work like that my bro has a ford with lsd in the rear and it doesnt do that the diff in the suby is working more like a diff lock

you should go back and read Qman's post more closely.

You have an open rear diff but a locked center diff


this is what is causing the jumping,
NOT the rear diff.

You brothers truck no doubt has an open center differential.
