Default locker help

Need help deciding what locker to put in my rear dana 60.. i have 30 spline shafts and 4.10 gears. I'm mostly a pavement pounder. but i like to hit every trail i see and need something thats gonna lock up as soon as the tires start to slip and then unlock when i get back driving.. i use to have one exactly like that but i changed axles and don't know what it was but i loved it.. I'm not really wanting to run an air locker or electric.. but any help would be greatly appreciated..i know nothing about this.. thank you in advance

I would try calling the guy that said it was to much.

FWIW I love my Detroit. Locks up when I need it to and works great on my DD rig.

As of Friday, $570 + tax. Prices may or may not increase on Monday (most gear prices are going up, see http://www.greatlakes4x4.com/showthread.php?t=118449).

Lowfullsize, just an FYI that the Detroit locker has some different characteristics on the street compared to a limited slip or open diff. Here is some good information about Detroits, see the fourth paragraph down for handling issues: http://www.offroaders.com/tech/Detro...ic-lockers.htm

The Detroit is a sturdy locker that works well, though it has its trade-offs. Once you get used to the way it behaves on the street and adjust your driving style accordingly its not a big deal, but you will know it is there every time you drive the truck. Just something to be aware of.

I believe the only "locker" auburn makes is the ected electric unit which you said no to. Auburn diffs are limited slip.

Take your choice!! I used to run a Aubrun limited slip in the front of my Dana 44 and liked it.
