Aussie Auto locker/Factory LSD/Detroit TruTrac
 
So I THINK I have decided on a setup for my mall crawling light trail riding rig. Tell me what you guys think..........

Aussie in the front in my Dana 30 w/4.56 gears

Detroit TruTrac in the Rear in my Dana 35 w/4.56 gears
My other option would be a factory LSD (would be used and whats it cost to rebuild)

I want quiet reliable function on a budget:) Any comments on this setup?

BTW thanks for all the help guys.

I think you have come up with a very good workable combination, a Truetrac in your rear Dana 35c and an Aussie in your front Dana 30. If you want it 100% quiet on the street with no clicking through your turns, upgrade the front Aussie to a No-Slip which is about $100 more. It works exactly like the Aussie does offroad but on the road in 2wd, it's silent and you can't hear or otherwise detect it when you're in 2wd. :)

Thank you! I have been searching and listening to all the guys on hear:) I do not see anyhting listed but this Aussie.........Aussie Lockers: SUV - Jeep - Wrangler TJ & YJ - (1993 2006) ABS and non-ABS. Please note that Dana 44A diffs were used in the same model years. Check VIN to confirm that you have a Dana 35 installed. Please confirm correct diff before ordering.

Be aware that's the wrong Aussie for your Dana 30 as shown in that link, it shows an Aussie for the rear Dana 35c which you don't want.

The Aussie is a fine choice for your front Dana 30, the No-Slip's benefit is it doesn't click through turns like the Aussie (and Lockright) do. :)

Will the Detroit TruTrac in the D35 be well mannered and quiet?

You won't even know it's there, it's pretty much impossible to detect. I installed front and rear Truetracs 11-12 years ago and couldn't detect their presence. For a stock Dana 35c, it's the best choice you can make. :)

I 've run an Aussie in the front D30 for a couple of years, reliable and works great. They do noticably click when turning but nothing too horrific. So you are going to regear and obviously want a locker, considering the cost of a trutrac ($400 ish) I would suggest you look into an S35 kit for the rear. Best upgrade out there for a D35c.

I have had the Aussie upfront for about a year now. Love It! Never had any problems and it seems to work great. You can hear it clicking when windows or top are down.. Just turn the music up and you can't hear it.

Is the No-Slip you mentioned the Powertrax No Slip?

If yes, if after installing it say in the front to a Dana 30 can you later remove it if you wish to put it in another Dana 30 in another Jeep vehicle?

Same question with an Aussie in the front Dana 30. Could you remove it at a later date if you wanted to and then install it in another Jeep with the same Dana 30?

Thanks.

Jerry Bransford 06-28-2010 11:12 PM

Yes, that is the Powertrax No-Slip although Powertrax is now owned by Richmond Gear. Yes you can remove the No-Slip, Aussie, or Lockright to install into another axle. :)

Great, thanks!

I thought the Aussie was quiet unless you are in 4wd? It only locks in torque is applied right? I do not want any noises. Everytime I buy something that is noisy I regret it. Plus when I sell it will limit who might buy it. I have a car I put a lightweight fly wheel slash heavy clutch in. I knew it made noise going and everyone said no big deal. However unless I keep my foot on the clutch at idle it sounds like a bag of bolts clanging around. I don't like it. People ask me all the time is something wrong with your car! No it cost me $2k to make it sound that way!

This is what I want for the D35 right?

The Aussie, like any auto locker, will click on sharp turns (like when pulling into a parking space), but other than that, you will seldom know it's there when you are in 2wd.

Without starting the whole D35 debate, I personally would think long and hard before spending any money to upgrade a D35.

cpu77 06-29-2010 07:11 AM

Hmm well as for upgrades I agree if you are wheeling put a 8.8 ford in there. However I really don't wheel. I am just regearing for my 33's. I figure why in there why not add a LSD. As for the front I wish I could hear it in person. Does it click like a bad CV joint or bind like when it's in 4wd turning.
