Alright I would like to hear some pricepoints....I like the sound of this dual truetrac...although some have said autolocker in front is cheaper and easier. I have D44 LSD in the back but most say the clutches don't last for ****.
What should I consider, cost/benefit, for my mostly stock DD/WW rig?

I do a lot of trail riding so I don't like have a full time locker in the front. Makes turning pretty difficult in tight places. I would rather have the full time locker in the back and TT or selectable in the front.
With limited experience 4 wheeling with a jeep I took the advice of the guy that runs a drivetrain shop and installed tru tracs in front d30 and back d44. We wheel in muddy river bottom mud on tight trails made by 4 wheelers and I like the way my jeep handles.
You defiantly don't want an auto locker like the aussie or the Spartan, when it rains on the shell-based roads, well, you know they are slick as snow for the first 15 or 20 min till the oils wash out, an auto locker will cause control loss very easily.
TTs front and rear here!
D30, D44 ... in the rear it replaced the traclock, since that clutchbased LSD is subject to wear and the torsen type Truetrac does bias torque better!
Since I was re gearing anyway ... the effort to drop them in instead of the stock carriers was none!
Actually a no brainer in slippery conditions ... cool to have a fully functional NON ELECTRONIC traction control all the time!

Here are some pics I've posted throughout JF on the type of Oregon trails my dual TrueTracs gets me through - no winching or snatch assistance either...
I am quite impressed with my TrueTracs .

I hit some ice today ended up in a ditch I put it in 4x4 low and the front and rear tru trac drove me right out.. Great investment just wish I was wearing my seat belt because my shoulder slamming against the door really hurts.. Next mod seats and harness with sticker that says put on your safety belt..
