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

Comments: Good drop-in locker in replacement of spider gears. Thoughtless traction, with the ability to still turn corners easily. Can sometimes cause a slight pushing sensation on ice/snow, and sometimes won't "unlock" fast enough for sharp turns.

Comments: I don't like it. I have the Lock-rite in my front axle and it made big difference on the trails. It is definitely better than stock, but it was noisy, and it didn't last very long. Lunch box lockers aren't worth it. If you going to spend the money on a locker, get a real locker.

Price: $230.00
Pros: Works flawlessly.
Cons: Can't unlock it in 4wd.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed the locker about 2 years ago and have never had any problems. At the time I installed it, I had never been inside a diff before, and the install was still real simple. It clicked/ratcheted a little bit in parking lots at first, but after moving to a heavier weight gear oil and a .25" thick diff cover, I can't hear it at all anymore.

I wheeled it for about a year on 33's, then another year on 35's pretty aggressivly and never had any problems out of it. Locks when it's supposed to (4wd), but is invisible in 2wd.

Although it was one of my first mods I did on my heep, I think it's the best one I've done to date. Huge difference in traction.

This is my story and I'm stickin' to it..!

Pros: excellent design great price and easy install
Cons: Wish I would have gotten it sooner
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a great product. If you wheel even moderatly you will see the increase in fun and capability with this. The lockright can be installed in your garage with normal tools. Nothing is hard about this install. The directions are very straightforward, and if you have any questions about the installation or the product the people at Powertrax are well educated on differentials. I was always one to say how quirky lockers can be in the front axle, but I put it to the test on a rutted up asphault road at 40 mph and had know adverse handling characteristics in four wheel drive. In two wheel drive you dont notice any different handling or noises versus a stock open differential. The guys at Richmond deffinatly did there homework when they designed this diff. For the price and ease of installation this is by far the best lunch box locker. For a more in depth write up check this out
