Replacing limited slip.......

Already not impressed with factory clutches in my 250 after only 3K miles. I know the detroit locker is the bullet proof way to go but its a little more aggressive than what I am looking for. I want to replace it with whatever is in my 08 dmax. It locks when I need but otherwise you wouldn't know it was there. After 120K miles it still locks like a champ even with one tire on and one off of pavement it will lock up. Anyone have any idea what type of locker GM is using or a similar set up that someone has had good service out of?

You can't go wrong with a Detroit TruTrac, mine works great.

There is no lock up at all in these 08 Rear ends. I can get stuck in wet grass.

I'm pretty sure its some sort of locker. I can hear it go "clonk" and lock and if you immediately turn occasionally it will stay locked and year hear the inside tire slipping.

Already happened to me twice. Once pulling off from a red light beside a buddy with my boat behind me and the other leaving a friends house. Both times wet road of course. Embarrassing from $50K truck with only 3K miles. I've done some reading and searching but still unsure which model to order. Anybody know which trutrac I need to order? 2010 250 3:55 limited slip.

This is the one I put in my '03, not sure if the 2010 axle has the same carrier or not, but I think it might be.

Possible they changed spline counts, but you could call Randy's and they would know for sure: - TT 915A550

My dually is 2wd and I heard this type of diff will help it tremendously in the snow and slop. Being a DRW is it going to hurt anything running a rear like this as opposed to a single?

What would one expect to pay to have it installed?
Thanks.
