The Detroit Truetrac was the first helical gear differential ever introduced into the automotive aftermarket as an Eaton brand.

Detroit Truetrac's proven helical gear design eliminates the need for wearable parts, resulting in maintenance free traction recognized not only for its toughness, but its smooth and quiet operation as well.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Transparent on the street, doesn't effect steering even when it is working, plug and play nothing to adjust or turn on and off, awesome in mud, snow, snot covered rock and roots, gravel, sand and slick rock.
Cons: Not a full locker, has a bias ratio of 3:5:1
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have Truetracs front and rear on my 2009 JK and think they are great. I chose them because it's a daily driver, we see plenty of snow in the winter, so the lsd in the rear is just "there" whenever you need it for winter driving.

The trails I run are the whole gamut for rock, mud, water crossing, rotting logs, stumps and roots, snow etc. and I decided this was the best traction device for my conditions. Occasionally I might do better with full lockers but I very rarely get stuck or find myself not able to do what others can that have selectable lockers front and rear.

If I can't get enough traction with the Truetracs and brake modulation I can guarantee 95% of the guys behind me with lockers are going to be winching too.

AS FOR THE ONE NEGATIVE REVIEW BELOW:
It's obvious he has never used, or learned how to use Truetracs because his business doesn't sell them. Guess what, he does sell ARB. Thanks for the biased, unprofessional blatant spam type post. Nice job discrediting yourself and compromising your integrity providing false information for a potential few dollars.:finger:

Pros: Good on road
Cons: Lets you down when you need it most.
Recommended? No

Comments: Good on the road but lets you down when you need it most. I think they are marketed so heavily and customers only want them because so many people think they are awesome. If you want the best, go with an ARB. That will be the best in both situations and won't let you down.

Pros: It works when it needs to.
Cons: A little noisy and a pain to install with big fingers.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love this locker! It's cheep and it works all the time. It get me in trouble with 2wd and usually out of the trouble without using the 4wd, just to see how good it is. I use my jeep to plow my driveway in winter and usually don't even use 4wd! It kicks *** and works well!
