Need Traction Aid
 
I have a 2012 Sport without a rear Trac Lok. I would like to add a rear traction device that won't break the bank and still be able to handle 33" tires and have good streetability. Most of my wheeling will be forrest roads, farm fields, and deep snow. Considering adding a Trac Lok or TrueTrac. Any suggestions?

For your situation, I'd recommend the Detroit Truetracs. You can install them front and rear if you want.

Agree with river2c, they're one of the best limited slips out there.

Someday I'm going to do TrueTracs front and rear. :thumb:

True Tracs without a doubt.

Get some good tires and put a sand bag or two in the back

The Tru Trac is a great option if you want a maintenance free limited slip. :thumb: You may also look into putting a Aussie Locker in the front. They are very reasonably priced and are transperant on the road. Home page - Aussie Lockers - Welcome to Torq Masters Home of the Aussie Locker

Common sense and preparation go WAY further than money and hardware....

Have you wheeled it yet? You might be surprised at how well the BLD performs. http://blog.chryslerllc.com/blog.do?p=entry&id=270

Given those two choices, I'd get the Rubicon, for sure!

Wait... wut?

I have to say that I've been going out into the woods a bit, and as I'm getting more confident I'm leaving it in 2WD longer and longer, sometimes not shifting out of it at all.

This vehicle is hellishly capable as-is.

Super good read. Thank you!
Maybe that's why it does so well offroading in 2WD? Neat if so!

Agreed... Thats what I run. Found one NIB for under 200$, put it in myself and it has been amazing! Cant tell its there unless Im in 4x4.

This is called "How to get stuck". Then you'll say, "I shoulda shifted into 4WD sooner".:dance:
