Rear Locker

All,

I have a Spartan tuned 2008 F-250 XLT. (upto 275hp tunes). I love the truck, the tunes, the smoke, the looks, the wins, etc., but I DON'T LIKE getting stuck on wet grass (since I only drive this truck off road)! I have Nitto Terra Grapplers and I have been stuck 5 times in very drivable terrain. My rear end is only a one-wheel torquer. I would like a selectable locker (not ARB) but am open to all options. What do you guys suggest?

Thank You,


Stuck (Literally) in Oklahoma

The Detroit tru trac is a limited slip but works very well.

The only downside to Detroit's and Lock-Rites is that they aren't selectable. You'd have to go with ARB or OX to get a true selectable locker. I've found that with most automatic lockers you get the "click-click-click" when you're making a tight turn.
