rear lsd

I've searched this and haven't found anything about it, I read that there is a lsd in the rear of TJ's? how would I be able to tell if I have one or not? all i know is that i have a dana 44 in the rear and was gonna look for a locker but if i have an lsd it would kinda be pointless since i'm just a weekend trail guy for now.

You most likely have one. The tag on the diff cover will tell you.

Yes, there is a metal tag attached to the diff cover. It will be stamped something like "3.73 LSD"

Your not missing much, the traclock is not all that great. If you want a good mix of LSD and something that will help on the trails, without getting a full locker.. look into the turetrac. Works well, not a full locker tough.

Full time locker in the front on snow covered roads... sucks... Been there done that.. the porsche next to me was doing better than my jeep... Rear no problem...if you can get a selectable unit for the front you will like life much better.

Sucks in that it pulls the jeep right left, etc.. got so bad for me that I would run in 2wd in the snow on the road..was almost like I was fighting the steering wheel for control. Open diffs where better. or a locker in just the rear, as I had in my CJ was great in the snow.

^Agreed with the above. If you go air, you can get a small compressor on-board that won't take up much space. Electronics take a fair bit of wiring time, but work just fine for most people.
Locked diffs in snow SUCK. Dealt with them in my family's old CJ- that was how I learned to drive white-knuckle! If tire pressure wasn't perfectly even from side to side, the lockers went off all the time, and would send you into some awesome (not really) skids/slides that weren't yours to control- NOT a good time- Mark W.

way cheaper than getting a compressor is to grab a couple co2 canisters. 20oz will fill a 32in tire from 10-30 and has enough juice to run lockers for awhile. if you can fit a 10lb bottle thats the way to go.

check this out POWERTANK - CO2 Air Systems

I have my detroit in the rear after my trac-loc blew up. I had no problem in the snow this year. It will change the way the jeep rides, but I actually have fun with the way mine drives now.

ive been thinking of upgrading too. I want to maybe put a truetrac in the rear and a selectable locker in the front. How would this system work? good or not?
