Auburn gear electric locker for Dana 60!

I just saw this new locker for Dana 60s . It's a electronic locking diff, which if well designed would be AWESOME for an up fitter switch for our trucks and combine that with our rear ELD would give us true 4x4 when we need it.


Has anyone heard or have any experience with this?

I like the idea of the ELD vs the ARB air compressor locker.

What is it? Is our factory rear locker a true locker?

Auburn’s rugged 4-pinion gear design arrangement is designed to exceed the performance of OE and aftermarket differentials alike. “This diff will give drivers total assurance that they won’t break gears when pushing their vehicles to the limit in locked mode,” Forrest added.

When Auburn’s differential is unlocked, or open, it allows each individual wheel to rotate at a variable rate. In its open mode, the new differential provides equal rotational torque to each wheel. Although the wheels may rotate at varying speeds, each applies a similar rotational force, even if one wheel is stationary while the other is revolving.

When the new differential is locked, it forces both wheels to rotate at an equal speed regardless of terrain or traction. In locked mode, each wheel applies a rotational force equal to the conditions and its tractive capacity, so the torque exerted on the differential hemispheres, each side-shaft and wheels can be significantly unequal.

Is it just me or does that last paragraph contradict itself???

Auburn Gear Engineers New, Super-Reliable Electronic Open-to-Lock Differential for Dana 60 Front and Rear Axles
I dont know if you have ever driven, used or owned a new fx4 f150, but they have something like this in them.....when you switch the knob to 4x4 you can also pull the knob toward you, or out.....which locks the rear end so you no longer have I guess what you would call posi trac.....basically no more one wheel peel.

Yes, as I stated in my post, I have the ELD REAR in my 2014. which means electronic lock differential. It's not a posi, it's a true open diff until you pull out the knob and it electrically operates the rear diff lock mechanism inside the pumpkin.

My whole point is to put this auburn in the FRONT and control it with an up fitter switch to go from open to locked when in mud or snow. Obviously not made for turning on dry pavement locked.

If this is a good LOCKING unit it would be a sweet way to have real 4x4 not 3x4 which is what we have now with the rear ELD locked and in 4x4.
