If you want pure off road lock up, a full locker is where i would look, and not the cheap trac locks that click when you turn.... broken them too.
Couple guys run spools, but i dont recommend that for street use.
Putting a full locker up front is not user friendly. As for the True Trac not standing up to the torque of a Powerstroke, I've not seen anyone that I know running them have any issues with them and they pull 10,000+ regularly and also race occasionally. The only True Trac I've ever heard "exploding" was when the truck was being driven in an extremely stupid manner with a heavy load in the back and if it wasn't the True Trac that gave way it would have been some other part of the idiots drivetrain. Sure you could rebuild the stock LS but why spend money doing something that will have to be done again in a few years.
