Detroit Locker

Any of you guys running a detroit locker in the rear? I had one in the F&R of my old Yoter woods truck and LOVED THEM. Really debating going from my factory LSD to one. Have you guys had any issues with them on daily drivers? clunking? popping? Driveshaft play? etc?

A limited slip uses a frication device and rpm difference to apply equal drive to each axel.

A locker like a true Detroit uses a ratchet like device to drive the axels.
The others use the frication devices but locks them with a air or electrical device turned on by the driver.

Thanks!!! So, is the tru trac controlled by the driver, or is it ratchet driven like the original detroit locker?
