if you have a SRW it should be a 10.5 rear end.... you can get any locker that would fit on the 99-07 SD

where you looking for something like a detroit locker? or a selectable locker like a ARB?

Ideally just either an air or electric locker... for selectable usage on offroad / snow driving.

well their are diff types of lockers...

for a regular locker you have a detroit locker and a tru trac... the tru trac acts more like a limited slip... great for towing... the detroit is great for wheeling... it does not have as good road maners as the tru trac but will perform better off-road

if your going with a selectable locker (best and most expensive) their are a few types

Air locker like the ARB
Electronic locker (no Air lines)
and a locker like the OX that uses a cable actuator..

if you can afford to put selectable lockers both front and rear i say do it... but they are in the 800+ each range depending on which one you want

if you tow i would do a tru trac.. if you dont get a detroit locker rear end...

always get a selectable locker up front...

If you have an FX4 I would not waste the money on a Tru trac, the stock diff works pretty well on the FX4 package.


I think sooner than later I am going to add ARB air lockers front and rear, and do gears at the same time.

No FX4 here... I'm a fairly new Ford owner... came over from the Dodge side. Always would annoyed that the diff up front was "open"... and while under normal usage was ok... but under condition when I really needed the traction, because it's open... it would send power to the wheel w/ the least amount of traction.

the Tru trac is what you want then... Stealth Automotive. Ford 10.25 & 10.5 Detrot Tru Trac

its the best all around LS for your application...

if you got a lifted rig and need to regear the truck this is the time to do it since whoever is gonna do the install will already have everything out
