10.25/10.5 Carrier

Does anyone know if the 10.5 ring gear can be put on the 10.25 carrier? I thought I read that you could, but that was about 5 years ago and I can't find it now. I am not too thrilled with my Detroit True Trac, its more of an LS unit and it looks as though I really wanted a locker. If the '99 and up 10.25 will fit, it would open up my possibilities.

WHAT!?! I was trying to list stuff that everyone else
hasn't already listed for their truck!

Really considering a Power Trax Lock Right. $650 for a Detroit is a little stiff.

Yea that is pretty high but is still way less than ARB or any other selectable locker and it is pretty much bullet proof.

You're going to have to be more specific than "i read some reviews". I used one in my 67 Mustang for years, I liked the clickety click and brutal effeciency of it. Then I thought a mini spool would be cool, I miss the Lock Right everytime I make a tight turn in a parking lot.

I've always had very good luck with lock-rights in Jeeps. I actually broke a Detriot with a 6-cylinder Jeep on 35s before..... Nothing is bulletproof lol I want to do something about the "limited-grip" in the rear of my truck too. But I did not have good luck with ARBs so I'm leaning toward mechanical lockers.

Lol, it's not just "more of an LS unit", it IS a LS unit and advertised as such.

I would check around a bit deeper...I know the 10.25 stuff will fit in the 10.5, but since the 10.5 is bigger it may cause clearance issues with pinion depth or anywhere else clearance could be an issue. Provided 1/4" ain't much of a difference so I would imagine it would fit fine.

It's a POS is what it is! Turn left, nail it, donuts! Turn right, nail it, one tire fire. GRRRR! Slid it sideways one night, rear end came back around, right side became inside tire, diff unlocked, one tire fire, trans down shifted, pegged the tach, holy crap that sucked! Off road it is equally as depressing, have to give the e brake a couple of clicks for drag or its a 2 wheel drive in 4HI. I'm not too thrilled with it, better than the one leg that was in it, but not by much.

I'm thinking about a Lock Right in a one leg carrier, of course Power Tracks only lists it for the 10.25 carrier.

If you do indeed get a lock-right, I really want to know how you like it in a big truck like ours. I've road in a Superduty with a Detriot in the rear and you couldn't even tell it was back there really. Every once in a while it would chirp if you was taking off from a stop sign and turning onto another street, but thats about it. No pops or clicks at all. Mechanical lockers in a Jeep.... you KNOW they are back there lol
