ECTED in your dana 30

I pulled the trigger and bought one of these for the regear I need up front. Is there any new info on them from people that have been running for a while? I've been reading the same old posts from tons of forums over the last few days. Should I install or send it back? And please give a reason from experience; I. E. "saw it happen on the trail in my friends __"

Thanks!

Well after months of not having any responses I decided to install one anyway. The ECTED max is the new version they have out that fixed the quirks that the old ecteds had. I don't engage mine often, but the limited slip is TIGHT! I would highly recommend it in the front end but like with any other locker options, stick with a posilock set up to ensure maximum versatility. I'm running vacuum and switching to tj shafts this weekend and chromos by winter.

I like the idea of the Ected, I sold quite a few when I worked at 4wp. I would have considered them if I didn't have my YJ regeared with ARB's . I may install a set in my next YJ

The PO put ECTED's front (D30) and rear (8.8) in my 95 YJ. Love them on the trail. Easy to hit either switch when you need it.

The front one no longer locks all the time though, haven't had a chance to see if it is an electrical problem or something worse. But yeah, love them both and am certainly looking forward to getting the front fixed.
