How does the front aussie do in the snow? Can you go around a corner, or does it push straight?

I was tempted to do the aussie/weld route.

Default locker

I say Detroit Tru Trac may be what you need and it is MADE IN AMERICA. I currently run a detroit in the rear of a CJ-5 (20) and front of a YJ (44) and in a HP 60 (Waggy). Don't let these guys talk you into cheaping out.....Detroit is the good stuff. Been around forever and is proven PERIOD.........Aussie is obviously imported for guys that can't poney up for Detroits....This is only my opinion so flame on boys...

Im running an ARB in my dana 60 with 42's i like it alot, i can turn it off for sharp turns and since it needs air, i just went out and got a whole onboard air set up for under 200bucks...2.5gallon tank and compressor...the lines for the arb locker wont get ripped out either, and if they do you have other issues...plus with onboard air you can do tires, run air tools and such its cool

It's fine at low speeds in snow, slush. On ice it will push a little, and on surface roads with snow slush, it tends to pull you where it wants. When my Jeep was my DD I only ran 4wd in the deep snow, and on slick roads at under 30 or so. Above that I just ran 2wd. The locker is transparent in 2wd.

Monkeyevil has zero real life experience, his posts are based on internet (Mostly Amazon.com) reviews of lockers.

Above is a few post's that are a fine example of why people lurk and don't post. You throw out a constructive opinion to help a guy make a purchase based on YOUR EXPERIENCE and some queer calls you retarded. Lets never mind the fact that monkeyevil has never met me. Sad......

LOL. Fine, I'll be serious for a few seconds:

A Tru-trac is a helical gear limited slip, often called a Torsen type LSD. They cannot lock up 100%, only torque bias depending on the ratio that particular one is designed for, usually around 3:1 to 4:1 torque ratio.

They work great in conjunction with brake-based traction systems (we did a system for the military on HMMWVs with front and rear torsens + BTCS), or on a road race car which keeps its wheels relatively planted.

While magazine editor would be fun, I prefer designing parts for retards.

The issue is that we are talking about LOCKING DIFFERENTIALS, and the Tru Trac is NOT a locker. Its a limited slip.

If you started talking about HA in a full hydro thread, you'd get dogpiled just as fast.
