rear locker

Ok, just bought an 08 PSD and it says it has a limited slip rear, but I'm hearing they don't work that great...people saying they get stuck in flat ground in wet grass . I'm thinking about doing a Detroit trutrac or something along those lines. They seem reasonable in price...what do you guys think. Are the stock limited slip rears good enough and I'd be wasting money? Any input appreciated.

You sold your 2011 already? Didn't like it?

Anyways... if the truck is a 4x4, I wouldn't bother with upgrading the locker. Yeah, the factory one ain't great, but that money can likely be spent better elsewhere at this point, in my opinion. You can probably stack an extra clutch or two in the factory one, but I bet it would get ignorant driving it around corners. I've had a couple of 'em chattering STOCK now, so with an extra clutch or two, it might be real gross around corners.

The truck is an FX4. When you say ignorant, do you mean that clutch would be in a 'confused' state about where to lock in?

No, I LOVED my 2011. It was a loaded KR white/beige...absolutely amazing truck, but I got layed off and before I started getting behind on payments, sold it. Plus, I'm already planned to get married in December. So now I'm in a loaded 08 6.4L PSD. I got another job starting in two weeks, so I'll be deleting and tuning soon.

No, it would chatter going around corners, as if the wheels were locked together all the time. Either the wheels would scrape/scrub going around corners because they ARE locked together, or the clutches slipping against each other would cause a chattering which would likely shake the entire truck.

I like the idea of having an e-locker on the front and an effective posi in the rear...probably exensive setup though
