I have an Aussie up front and its AMAZING what my rig will do now compared to being open/open.

Truetrac is a streetable locker. We have them on 4 off road only rigs and they work awesome. Technically its limited slip, but don't let that fool you.Its all locker except it won't push or buck on turns, will help eliminate broken axle shafts and won't excessively wear out your tires. Besides the benefits you won't be able to tell the difference, even when rock crawling unless your a hard core crawler.

So again if you want the best locker for the best price you want a truetrac.

I have had an e-locker and would not go that route again due to the cost and reliability.

When you I stalled that did you have to pull the ring gear off? I want to install a front. Maybe if you have a write up or could pm me some details of how you did it. Thanks!

You have to pull the carrier, yes. But youre really just replacing the spider gears so its not as in depth of a job as other types of lockers. I recommend them man

Did you just mark everything and put it back in place? I've been looking in to them and that seems to be how its done just want to know first hand what I'm getting I to.

Also is it noticeable on 2wd in the steering characterists

Yes. I removed my spiders, kept track of how I removed everything and its been good. The locker itself is only like 8 parts or some ****.

You have a 242 Tcase? Right? Youre good. I wouldnt recommend putting this type of locker in any rig you drive on the road with an all time Tcase. Its sketchy as hell.

its a limited slip. not a locker. not debating how great they are for what you wheel. just don't call it a locker.

aussie for the win. easy to install and cheap.

Why waste money buying a locker for your d35, just weld the gears unless A.It's your DD or B.You plan on doing a super 35 with a Detriot or ARB.
