    Ok ok
    Poor choice of words. I didn’t feel it engage . From MY experience the tru trac would function perfectly as designed,if there was any and I mean ANY loss of traction it will seamlessly send traction were needed and that often in my experience was both wheels like a fully locked diff . Now I said engage because when you’re going 60mph straight down the road often up a incline just barely accelerating and the rear end washes out because there was a slight slip and now it’s “locked “ ( both rotating with Tourqe) and without that 1wheel just tracking and 1 rotating with tourqe a light in the rear pickup it tends to go into a less than desired direction. Now I was always able to recover it I’m just saying it’s something to be mindful of. Again there is no need to be “ locked” at anything over 20mph in my opinion. Other than that the tru trac is awesome and easy to install and a great option . I would just rather be able to have full control over traction as needed.

    So what all do I need to get the Detroit True Trac? Like which extra pieces do I need to order, and which DTT do I need?
    I have a 2008 open diff 4l 4wd.

    Just call East Coast Gear Supply. They will know exactly what you need and always have good (if not the best) prices. Maybe ask for a tacomaworld member discount.... who knows it might save you a few bucks.

    Well, guess I ain't getting no truetrac.
    +$1600 after shipping and installation, just not worth it to spin 2 tires instead of one.
    Wish I could do this myself, just don't have the place and technical ability.:confused::help:

    That’s a bummer.
    It was a seamless perfect replacement for the pos aam 9.25 Grenada that dodge put in there rams . I would think the toy rear would be even easier since the pinion assembly comes off with housing and can be worked on the bench? Mine cost 6 bills from summit and like 5 bills for all new bearings and seals . Do your research you can do it.

    I seriously doubt That price . The tru trac is probably 6 bills all by itself , parts and labor at least another 5 bills I bet.
