Full spool or Detroit

I am going from a Turdy-five with a Detroit to a Ford 8.8 and am wondering if a Full Spool with superior c-clip eliminator would be better than a Detriot with c-clips. It's my DD but I do like to crawl with it. The cost is not that much more for the superior kit and spool but I can't decide if I can live with a spool on road. I wont be overloading the stock shafts if I stay with just the detroit. I am going to 33-12.5 tires.(up from 31-12.5 ) I guess I am just lusting for the superior kit and trying to justify it but I have never delt with a spool before. Is it that much different from the Detroit that I am used to?

A spool is gonna suck on throad..especially in a dail driver. Why not go with an air or electric lock?

Get the Superior Super 88 kit.

Do it.
