True Trac vs. Powr lok
Does anyone know if the True Trac is comparable to the powr lok?

The Detroit Truetrac is a nearly bulletproof gear-based limited slip differential. What's a Powr Lok and who makes it? Is it a locker or is it a limited slip differential?

The Powr Lok is the stock L/S made by Dana Spicer. It suppose to be able to stand up well with tall tires, can lock up harder than most L/S (if you set it up right), and can last 100,000 miles.

I have run the powr loc before, after the clutches start to wear, they are about as useful as an open diff in a need traction situation. I run trutracs front and rear now, for that reason and they have yet to fail me, i even went from a locker in the rear to a trutrac. The handling characteristics are much better IMO. But for the initial slight increase in buy in, it was worth it.
