I looked into those also...I emailed a guy at Richmond Gear, and he told me that it may not be good for my truck since its heavily modded, and because of the amount of tq. I would think that for a mildly modded truck it might be ok as long as you weren't sled pulling and drag racing

I have not had good luck with the 'lunchbox' lockers

they are all pretty much the same, noisier then a real Detriot and far less reliable
the newest version is a Yukon product called Spartan, the previous version was Aussie Locker, the Lockrite and Powertrax are decades old versions

I have a spartan locker in my front axle, works well there, have no idea how a similar style would work in the rear, but i wouldn't hold my breath

I have run 1 for quite awhile in my Jeep. I like them. Ina fullsize truck with a lot of power and tire I wouldn't want one. It depends on what you want to do. If you use lots of throttle they won't live. What are you wanting to do with your truck? Running one in the rear you will hear it clicking in turns,or tire chirp when on the throttle.

Just trying to find a way to get more traction and not having to spend $1500 to $2000 to have a real posi put in my truck.
