Lance, I have true tracks in both my axles. For all the harder I wheel it, it works fine. However, if I had the money to do it over, I would have put a Detroit soft locker in the rear and 4.88 gears.

I have found in mud, if you hit the brakes hard while rolling, the true tracks will lock up.

baby jeep has a trutrac up front and a full detroit in the 44 in the rear.

you've seen it so you know it works good.

I do get some feed back from it on the street from time to time.

Ive rode in a yj with aussies front and rear, just tonight actually, and it wasnt that bad. Ive driven a tj with a lockright in the front, and other than clicking, ya dont notice it (but thats in 2wd), and ive driven a cj with detroits front and rear and it wasnt bad at all, just something to get used to and remember when going around turns.

Im goin aussie front and rear, cuz id like to have money to spend elsewhere as well.
