After reading the comment e-lockers are proving more reliable. I have to agree. Been wheeling with them over 4 years now,and every single rig in my group who run arb have had nothing but leaking problems.

I have eaton tru trac in rear and ox up front, yeah the ox is more money but worth every penny, mine is my dd and in winter I sometimes have to use 4x4,you really never want to use a locker on high traction surface aside from steering issues it puts a lot of strain on your driveline.

Those trutracs work well in the front axle in snow but then again, it isn't a locker for the trail. Selectable is always best in my experience.

My buddy had a trutrac up front on his YJ. Watching him climb rocks it looks like it's open.

They don't work well in the rocks at all. That's why I ditched mine for an ARB.

Watch my truetrac get me stuck last year. Bad spotter too...

Jeez, too many spotters! Lol

My dog sounds the same way when we are wheeling and I kick her out.

Leaking what?
Air?
It is the worlds easiest thing to make an air system NOT leak. Just saying...

I too have heard about issues with ARB lockers failing due to pressure loss on the trail.

I talked to my drive line guy and he said manual selectable or automatic is the way to go. Second choice would be E. He will only do air if forced.

I read that after my email exchanges with Bill Cole. When his name popped up on the article I was like, "hmmm. Email replies direct from the top. Nice."

Hey Anticanman. I watched your video. The Truetrac is a LSD. To keep it engaged when you are running a trail like that you need to keep your foot into the brake to keep the pressure on it? I didnt see any brakelights when you were moving forward, just when you were moving back.

Here is a JK link for explaining lockers.
http://project-jk.com/jeep-jk-tech/d...ts-lockers-101
I also found a kid on line that really does an excellent job of explaining the lockers from a mechainical operation. If you go through all his videos he does a real good job of explaining things. This one isnt for you Anticanman. I know you know your stuff. I am trying to learn as much as I can about the best locker setup to get for my rig when I pull the trigger. There is a bunch of different types and so many different opinions on the best setup for different situations.
