It helps, but if one tire is spinning and the other isn't its not good enough

I thought about adding to the clutch pack but then it would still be a LSD

Best off with a full locker. I tried a truetrac in my 8.8 and it was useless on the rocks.

Mine helps a little, but you're right.

It should say: " your limited slip is just an open diff that has been lying to you."

You're new nickname should be "signature machine". Or SigMac for short.

SigMac has too many calories.

Two front jeep flatties, ARB's, speakers, alloys on neoprene bun. Protectors.

I'm so tired.

Everyone having a good night? Can't wait to work on the Jeep this weekend. Rebuilt carb ready to go back in, tune and then strip the interior. Saturday plans.
