Detroit Truetrac

When I re gear and I get bigger tires I was thinking about putting a lsd Detroit Truetrac in the rear. I've heard good things about them. Also If I do a selectible locker could I get one for the same price as a lsd? This is a dd.

i bought a used detroit electrac at ebay for 150$. it was only for 300 mlks in a TJ before the car had an accident

the electrac is a truetrac with an additional 100% feature. press a button ant the LSD locks 100%.

the truetrac inside is relaiable. ther are problems with the 100% feature if you don´t install it right.
aq buddy has a company ( http://killeraxles.com/1.html )that modifies axles and he said that it´s reliable if it´s installed right. he installed +50 of them and there were no problems.
he will install the gears and the locker for me.

I have a Detroit TruTrac in front - works great. Regular Detroit locker in rear - works great offroad - a little touchy on the street sometimes.
