I believe the Eaton Truetrac is the most used and preferred (not just for our 10.5's, but all-round locker needs), it's a product I'll be considering for next year because mine stinks too.

If you're feeling rich you could always drop the money for some e-lockers or ARB's front and rear air lockers . . . those would be sweet!

I ran a detroit locker in the back of my 99 dodge and it was great for traction, but hard on tires. they will half *** free wheel around corners but when the side gears disengage it sounds like the whole thing is coming apart.
I have ARB lockers in my CJ7 and they are the cats ***. open diff when you want them and spool when you need it. not overly cheap but deffinately worth every penny.
I had a buddy who ran tru tracs f/r in his cummins and he really liked them and they went every where.
Welded and spooled diffs have no place on the street.

I want an Eaton for my truck... the factory trac-loc (or whatever they call it) sucks IMO. it's better than open, but not by much.

ive decided to go with a full detroit locker in the rear. my question is now how do i find out exactly what axle i have? im 80% sure its a dana 80 but idk if its a 35 or 37 spline. the trucks an e99 when i did my front outer axle shafts and wheel bearings finding the right stuff was fun but i got it right. now i know it has 3.73 gears and it has the check plug on the cover. can anyone tell me how to decode my axle before ordering? thanks!

A detroit is gonna be rough on your tires.... especially with a dually. I would guess that your truck would have a 35 spline D80. Dont quote me on that though. I have been wrong before haha.
