Posi-Trac??????????

I would like to upgrade my differential to a limit-slip. I have read thru some of the different ones. I don't want an Air locker or E-locker. I want somthing that will work on its own. I was curious about the Power Traxx. The differential will have to have good road manners, I don't want it trying to bind up when making sharp turns. Does anyone have any suggestion?

IMO the Detroit Tru-Trac is the best limited slip on the market. Most LS use clutches to enage the axles, the tru trac uses gears. I know of nobone who has broken one.

Detroit Tru-Trac

my buddy put one in his work truck when the stock carrier broke. He does basment work. They haul around a lot of stuff in the bed of the truck and pull heavy trailer.(bob cat,mini-X's and such) He loved the tru-trac in the rear axle. He said you could not tell it was there untill you got on the gas hard and it would light up both of tires everytime.

I had one in the front of my off-road jeep that I got used and I use it for about 3 year. The case broke b/c it was ment for a C-clip axle and did not have as many gears in it as it would for something that is not a C-clip alxe(like the 10 bolt I am runing) I know if I was to buy something for my truck I would buy a tru-trac. Also you do not need any spec. stuff to put in for clutches since there are none.

I appreciate your info. I did some research on the tru trac. It might just be me, but I really don't see this design working very well for constant daily on & offroad.

As opposed to a unit that runs on clutches?. Concider that an automatic transmission runs on clutches, a standard does not. A standard uses a clutch to engage, and what part do you replace most on a standard trans.... Its the same theory. The clutches used in virtually every other limited slip differerential wear out. Plus most require a friction modifier to work properly. The Tru-Trac does not.

Are you doing the install yourself? If so I'd go to www.fourwheelparts.com. If you are having the work done for you, hit a local 4x4 shop with a good rep.

Other places to check:
www.4wd.com

www.reiderracing.com
