I had one in my D35, it's now in my buddies Jeep, entire axle actually. The Powertrax is pretty much a heavier duty version of the EZ Locker. No real complaints when I had it, and my buddy like it even more, as he has an automatic. This one has been Rubicon tested.
I wouldn't say that it's as smooth as a limited slip though, after all it's still a locker.

I am also contemplating whether or not to put in into my AMC 20 axle. Is it worth the extra $100 for the no slip, or would I just be better off with the lick rite?

Actually, I'll be helping with the install on one in an AMC 20 this weekend. The Powertrax is actually approaching a Detroit Locker in price, biggest advantage is you can install it yourself. You do have to pull the carrier on an AMC 20 to do the install though (at least with 4.56 gears, center pin won't clear the ring gear). If you do the install make sure you keep the bearing races and shims on the correct sides when you put it back, and match mark your ring gear with the carrier so it goes back on in the correct position. Use red (high strength) Loc-tite on the ring gear bolts.

I order just about everthing through Quadratrac. If you are planning on spending a lot of money there they will set you up with dealer pricing. You get up to %50 off everthing in the catalog depending on the product. The no slip goes for $419, I get it at dealer cost for $344. I dont want to sacrifice on road drive quality too much, and stay in a cheap price range, I have almost no money left over from my resto ( im 16). My jeep will be used mostly for the street, but when I hit the trails I want something I can depend on with out getting stuck with my damn cherokee.

I just read a few reviews and realized Im not too fond of the automatic lockers. My jeep will be used on the street a lot. I just learned that a locker will make snow and ice driving even worse!! I am going to save my money for a ARB or something that I can manually turn on and off. The trick is finding something cheaper than a damn ARB

IN A WAY THE OX LOCKER IS CHEAPER THAN THE ARB BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE TO SHELL OUT THE EXTRA MONEY FOR THE AIR COMPRESSOR TO RUN IT LIKE YOU DO FOR THE ARB.

Actually, you dont even need to buy the arb compressor, what I was planning on doing was making on board air. You would use a air conditioning compressor as a air compressor. Its not too difficult and can be done for around $50. The ARB compressor isn't all that great either, they burn out and take a long time to fill tires with.

No doubt! The ARB compressor is absolute junk! If you can get the old style, that one is fine. Slower, but sturdier. The new one, since about 96, is junk.

i had a gearless...HAD, damn thing, oh well...then a detroit for the 35...hard and loud...now i have the no-spin...still a positive lock like the detroit but no clicking...thats all...it's still a locker so all the downsides are there except the clicking. i think for the time the earless worked, that was a better locker. but hay, i off road, if i was on the road all the time i wouldnt need the gearless. for the extra cost, i dont know, but i payed 350 for it so it wasnt to bad. i still have the detroit for the 35. its in a rear end right now with 4.56 and disks.
