Default Auburn Locker

Anyone running a Gear-ECTED Electrically Activated Locker?
I'm putting together a Dana 44 for my YJ. Curious to know what locker I should put in it. Thanks. Besides an ARB.

I know very little about them, my only thing is the KISS method. Keep It Simple Stupid. Personally, the more gizmos that you have the more points of failure that you can have as well. Just my .02.

It's my understanding that the ECTED is not actually locker but a limited slip, even when 'engaged'. I have heard that after a fair amount of use it develops more and more give.

This is how it was explained to me when I was making the decision on a front locker - a LSD that gets more pressure applied on it.

Yeah I'm not an expert on it so I didn't want to start making claims about anything, but I believe that even when it's new the clutches still can slip a little bit and you don't get full lock up. That being said, I do know one guy who is running one in a HP30 in his ZJ and he really likes it.
