Is this a Detroit locker or Trutrac?

I got this axle from a guy on a local forum and it came with his jeep from the PO with this diff installed. He said it is a Detroit locker, after looking up Detroit locker and Trutrac I'm not sure if it really is a locker because it looks more like a Trutrac. The axle is defiantly locked when turned by hand, I just want to make sure it is a Detroit locker and not a Trutrac.

It appears to be a True track but I'm not an expert.

Keep your boogger hook off the bang button!

Yeah that's what got me thinking was google images but there are two in that link that look different. I know Eaton changed the original Detroit locker to the "Soft locker" which looks different so I might just have the older style Detroit locker... The Trutrac looks very similar though.

On the side of the unit with the carrier bearings, on a True Trac you can see the end of the 3 gears flush with the case. They are round.

Are you saying my diff is a Trutrac?
