POWERTRAX® No-Slip Traction System???

Hello,

Do any of you have first hand experience with this system?

Is this a good way to go? Or is this just a cheap short lived alternative. Would you guys just regear with a lunchbox instead?

Thanks
Addison

I have one in my CJ and it works great, not at much ratching as a regular lunch box but is smoother. However if you are going to the expense of a regear, do not install a lunch box locker, get a full case locker.

Hey Addi, I have had them installed in both the original d35 rear and d44, that is in my jeep now. I only have them in the rear not in the front. As far as helping with traction they are amazing. Since both wheels are spinning together at the same speed and time, they will push your jeep through or over the terrain you are driving on. If one tire looses traction the opposite tire will still push the jeep. With out a locker the power will go to the tire will the least resistance and spin. A good example is when I use to go the lake and drive around the beaches, if I did not maintain speed or hit a soft patch of sand, I would stop moving and just sit and spin the tires. When I installed the locker I never had the issure happen again. Tire pressure has a lot to do with how your jeep will preform but that is another subject. Again if you are going to keep your current gears get a lunch box, but if you are going to regear, then get a full case locker.
