tj00wrangler I run them front and rear in my daily driver and been very happy with them. I run 33x12.5 toyo Mt's on steel wheels and stock d30 and d35. I have ran TSF, Naches, Manatash and Walker Valley. I've been on Airplane hill and did very well. I just ran Walker Valley and never pulled cable on any part.

That's the nice thing about the TrueTracs; unlike clutch based LSDs, they don't need special additives whatsoever mixed in with the gear oil .

I personally run Royal Purple 80W-90 gear oil, but any quality GL5 80W-90 gear oil would do .

Again, the TrueTracs don't need special additives .

IslandTJ LOL, I don't know about that . I do know that once I lift a tire, or if the rocks get too big, I'll have to unspool wire from the winch. While the Truetracs suit me well in the Pacific Northwest, if I ever decide to lock in the future - it will be with front and rear Eaton elockers .

Xjman1 IslandTJ - you make me feel I cheated and overbuilt my rig by putting in the front elocker.

For me my front and rear TrueTracs were transparent on the road, I couldn't feel their presence; however off road, I thought they were great.

In winter snow and ice conditions on the streets, they gave the Jeep much more control.

Detroit Truetrac

1999 TJ Sahara.
Dana 35 rear.
Its my daily driver, and does only mild off-roading. BUT as I live in Canada, and we see a good deal of snow, ice, slush, mush and all the above, I would like so increased traction.

SO WILL THE TRUETRAC'S BE OK WITH THE DANA 35???
