NON Locker sugestions.

Hello all,

soon to install my 4.88s and will replace the tracloc. From what i read it is not worth rebuilding??

I do not want a locker for the rear, i prefer something smoother considering it spend a lot of time on the street and mostly trails with only 10% being hard core.

I ran an Auburn in my last CJ and had good results. Does anyone have feedback to LS diffs they are using? I never really drove my CJ with the tracloc so i can not compare.

All feedback is appreciated.

I run a power-lok in me 86' D44. Put an extra spring in it and it is very strong. Doesn't like to bias as much with the extra spring.

they are decent units but not made for the model 20,, I know my options are few.

Tru trac.
The Auburn is also available for the 20.
Last option is to go open, then use the trac lok for a boat anchor.

Go with an ARB or Elocker. Being selectable, you can choose when its locks and when its not. An added benefit of the Elocker, it works like a LSD when the switch is not thrown.

I agree.

Even though I would go with a full locker over a LSD, if your set on an LSD I would say go with a Truetrac. Put it in there and you'll never have to worry about it again.

TruTrac is very good. Quiet on the road, no jerking, grabbing. Very effective off road.

Truetracs front and rear with 4.56's in my 83 CJ7, and I have no issues or complaints. They perform well.

Not a serious crawler or bogger...but do like the dicey trails...haven't let me down yet. BTW...I have them front and rear in my 2003 F350 as well, since 2008.

Love the TruTrac! I don't even notice it on the street, but get into a sandy wash and it'll throw two solid roosters. Nice.

+1+1 If you want a LSD there is nothing better. No special lube, no clutches to wear out, built like a tank. Lifetime units.
