Lockers for our trucks

1997 Ford F-250

I have limited slip on my truck now but it isn't working. Instead of trying to fix it, I would rather just get something else that is going to work. I have read all about the detroit locker and truetrac lockers and really not interested in those. I would rather just have something that I flip a switch and it locks. I mostly am needing it for when I am pulling my boat out of the water. Does anyone offer electronic locker for our truck?

My next question, if no one offers e-lockers and I have to use an air locker, how much air does an air locker use? Can I just mount a tank under my truck and charge it up with my home compressor to avoid having to pay for a compressor?

I searched a lot on here and couldn't really find anything definitive. Thanks for the help.

I changed it about 2 months ago and have only driven it about 500 miles. No friction modifier was added.

ARB air locker or Eaton E-Locker would be two options.

Do you have a link for an e-locker for a 10.25? I can't find one.

I do not believe anyone makes a e-locker for the sterling 10.25

If there is then let me know. I would be fine with pulling a cable.

Cable locker is made by OX Locker. Dont offer one for 10.25. ARBs are great. I have them in the front and rear of my Jeep. Air volume that is required is very minimal. They do need 100 psi. Compressor is handy to have. The factory limited slips are garbage compared to a real locker. If you do decide to get a air locker make sure that whoever installs it knows what they are doing. The majority of air locker issues are from install.

Yup, ox lockers.... there are only 3 locker options for a 10.25, ARB, true-trac, and lock-right. Not sure if you could remove the internals out of a 2012 superduty and swap into the older 10.25 housing. That would give u a e-locker ??
