D44 Trac lock

I don't know if this has been covered before I searched and found nothing on it. I have a D44 rear with the factory Trac lock its got some miles under its belt and I know it probably needs rebuilt or replaced due to the miles on the jeep. I have found a rebuild kit for pretty cheap the clutches new are around $50.00 and have read through a few right ups where you can stack the clutches different to get more lockup. I was thinking about rebuilding it have any of you rebuilt the factory trac lock in your d44's I just don't know if its worth rebuilding or just saving up for a better one to install. I do off road occasionally but this thing sees a lot of road also and I would love to have a little more traction.

Yea, mine exploded. I ended up putting a Detroit in the rear and never looked back.

If its not broke dont fix it

the fastest way to turn something that works into junk is introduce tools into the equasion...

besides that if it ever quits its just the limited slip that quits and from then on its just an open diff

I would say you do a auto locker in it and call it a day.
