Any idea about how much that runs? And should I look for somebody to install that, or is it managable to do?

Installing a Detroit Truetrac is the same process as installing a Detroit Locker which requires the ring & pinion's backlash be set. I'd guess about $200 in labor. There are no easily installed LSDs like there are lunchbox lockers. A new Truetrac can be found for $375-400 if you shop around using sites like Google Product Search

When you have a choice, buy American.

I need to learn how to work on my engine, transmission, and differentials...I'd save so much freakin' money.

4wd has the TrueTrac's for $460...but I just saw another site with them for $400 (for the rear) and even cheaper for the front ($360ish). I'll post up the link if I find it again.

Both were found on reputable websites though...and not just some Ebay page.
