I think there are a lot of pickup trucks and even sport ute's out there that have no center diff at all.  It's either locked 4WD, or 2WD.

Perhaps it depends on what you might call a "Traditional Truck" ;-)

Bad terminology again...  By "traditional truck center diff" you mean "locker" style.  IOW, the two axles are locked together when the diff is locked.  Traditional trucks (all) have center diffs, as do the gen 1 audis, but they are capable of being disengaged (part time 4wd) or unlocked (full time awd).
