This one is a nicely documented person dispelling this myth because he was tired of hearing "TrueTrac doesn't work in reverse". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4OYbf3MW20

Yet another explanation of how TrueTrac works http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/TrueTrac.shtml
i was talking to rock house. like i said... his opposition has already provided the above vids. he has yet to provide any similar sources to support his claim to the contrary.

i am not choosing sides as i honestly don't know or really at this point actually care as i decided to get an eaton elocker since the time this argument started.

i asked the high pinion question because i was considering what to put in my HP dana60 ford front.

i am totally on board with the fact that it works forward or reverse, i was hoping to see an intelligent rebuttal from rock house since he claimed to be knowledgeable. since there has been no such information provided i would be inclined to believe the facts shown on this thread instead of someone who jumps to conclusions and stomps his feet when his opinion is questioned.

Oh sorry, I was not trying to involve myself in the argument, I just wanted to provide some documentation to help you make a decision.

As far as the HP60 goes, unless you are going to go to 38"+ tires and lots of lift, I think it is a bit of overkill. Real heavy, loss of clearance and all that compared to a D44 if you are going to stay with 37"- tires. If you decide to use it anyway, it will be stout as he**.

i am to be running 37" hmmwv tires and double beadlock 12 bolt wheels, after the axle swap is finished hopefully in a few weeks.
i'll be spring over with 2.5" military wrapped springs, so i'll be at about 8" of lift.

the goal is to run 38.5x11x16.5 boggers off road, when i can afford them that is.
i went the selectable locker route due to the fact that i wanted a spool but at the same time i will drive it on the road from time to time.

Sounds like it will be a beast . Then by all means, throw that 60 under.

And yeah, sorry to the OP for the hijack.

SO by all mean get a D60 true trac made for Either the rear or front.. Ohh wait they dont offer that, because the rear turns opposite of the front.

But who am I kidding.. It doesnt matter anyways, so no worry there.



Love, internet tech.

like i said twice already... i got an elocker from eaton.
again you miss the point of a discussion.
some sort of information on WHY it doesn't work forward or reverse would be helpful. instead you insist on not providing any.

I am running the bias ply 36" ones with 2.5" of lift. Love it, I can sidehill where the taller guys rollover. I love LCOG.
