How do people like their Limited slip rear end?

I have a chance to buy one and im not sure if i should jump on it. When the streets are wet the tires start to spin and bounce very easily. Just wondering if it would be worth the money

sounds like you have some axle hop pretty good too, but how much are you talking on spending, i light up both my tires in the rain, but thats only kause of these BFG at's that get no traction on the street when its wet, and california roads dont help either when its wet

love it! My tires never bounce or anything like that, but I've got stock size on and don't run them bald.

well when i bought the truck the tires were close to bald so i thought that was the reason. I just bought brand new Bfg at's and went with the stock tire size and im still getting it. its 200 but i have to drive 3 hours too.

I loved mine.
I ran 33in BFG M/Ts w/3.73 LS rear.
No problems at all

To be honest, I HATE mine. go with an aftermarket differential like a detroit true-trac. I have a factory ford trac-lok in mine and if im out playing in the mud or snow it will spin 1 tire, but if i do a burnout itll spin both. It will only spin both if theres enough load on it. if its 200 for just the differential i think its kinda high, here in missouri you can buy a whole rear axle with a posi for 150-200 on craigslist and have extra parts if you need em.
