For traction output, strength and durability, the POWERTRAX LOCK-RIGHT Locker. rivals much more expensive competitive lockers sold only as complete case replacement assemblies. It is a leading product because the LOCK-RIGHT delivers as much traction output, its end assembly is exceptionally strong, is much less expensive, and does not require professional installation (because the complete case assembly does not have to be replaced and realigned with precision calibration equipment). An excellent choice for off-road vehicle applications, performance enthusiasts also began using the LOCK-RIGHT LOCKER to satisfy their extreme traction requirements for racing, hot-rods and muscle cars.



The LOCK-RIGHT's operation is fully automatic. Designed to send the engine power to the wheels with the most traction, the LOCK-RIGHT will help get you where you want to go. While traveling straight the LOCK-RIGHT will lock the axles together similar to a spool. However, when the wheels need to differentiate in a turn, the LOCK-RIGHT will allow the outside wheel to rotate faster to complete the turn. The internal gears on the LOCK-RIGHT will overrun each other to allow this differentiation.
When operating off-road, the LOCK-RIGHT will always send the engine power to the wheels that need it most. For example, if you are rock crawling and one wheel is in the air (complete loss of traction), the wheel on the ground will receive the engine power and keep you going. Whether it be snow, sand, mud, ice, etc... the LOCK-RIGHT will give you the traction you need.

Although smoother than other competitive locking differentials, the brute force characteristics of the POWERTRAX LOCK-RIGHT Locker limit general application in less tolerant and more mainstream applications. In some vehicles, you will hear a light clicking noise as the gears are overrunning themselves and allowing the wheels to differentiate in a turn. This is normal of most lockers on the market today. We recommend the LOCK-RIGHT for vehicles that are primarily driven in severe driving conditions or are used for recreational off-road. For vehicles that are driven daily or require more mainstream application, the POWERTRAX TRACTION SYSTEMS offer a quieter and smoother performance

Cons: Locks NOW

Comments: Have had this locker in the rear (ford 8.8) and have never busted it. Not from lack of trying mind you. Last time I went to break the Jeep, I ended up smashing the tub and breaking every spider in the front axle. Rear is solid. Only thing I don't like is when on pavement, you cant accelerate through a turn or it locks up and makes you go straight.

Pros: Bought used but functions fine.
Cons: It loads up and pops in/out of turns.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: When it loads up and pops in/out of turn it can be pretty irritating. Down right spooky if you are not used to it, sounds like the axle blew up! I rather have this installed than be without a locker.

Comments: Low cost to get a locker in a D35. fairly simple to install; don't need to remve carrier. I have enjoyed it completely. Best inexpensive up-grade I've made. Though it does not cooperate in snow very well. Tends to kick the back end around if your not careful.

Price: $385.00
Pros: Locks up great when power is on.
Cons: Sometimes after turning a corner it only spins pass side. you have to let off and when you reapply power it locks.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I put this in because i had limited slip in my 8.8 rear and a lock-rite wouldn't fit. The install was simple after calling teck support and learning to grind 1/8 off one of the teeth of the ring gear to slip the pin out. Take your time and follow the directions and it is not a bad locker for a low budget. No gear work required.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Easier to install and disassemble than a Detroit EZ Locker. Good for both the hardcore and light trail riders.
Cons: Not selectable. Had to take the carrier and ring gear out to install.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I put this lunchbox locker in my D30 front end. It made a world of difference. I thought the rear locker was like night and day but with this installed and having all 4 wheels turning I can go places I never thought I would. This locker is good for the weekend warrior or the hardcore folks. The only thing I didn't like was removing the carrier and the ring gear from the housing. Not that it was real difficult just required a few more steps.

Comments: Purchased the front lock-right used on here. Stock dana 30 in the front. Welded the stock dana 35 in the rear. WOW what a difference the locker makes. I had a lot of people telling me to do differently but I didn't listen. I can go ALMOST anywhere now with the front and rear locked!! Only disadvantage is the rear obviiously stays locked all the time. The front (don't have lock outs) keeps one axle turning all the time. Not a big deal for the amount of time I spend on the road though.
