    the difference between a locking and limited slip differential?

    the LSD is best for normal on road use and the locking differential is for off-road use only. The LSD will not distribute equal amounts of torque, like the locker can; but the LSD is on full time.

    How much are you peeling out? The clutch on the LSD will eventually wear out. I don't think there is a specific mileage, but it will depend on your driving style.

    No locker in his truck -- he's got the sport.

    Apply the brakes slightly as you apply the gas. It'll provide some resistance on the wheel without traction and help the limited slip do its thing.

    Consider the LSD the same as an open differential when offroad. As you've seen, when 1 wheel loses contact with the ground it doesn't do a whole lot.

    Compensate with driving skill, and failing that, more speed. :rofl:

    Any expense can be worth it depending on the application. If you wheel hard and/or often, then hell yeah it's worth it.

    Bunches of different lockers out on the market.
    http://www.4wheelerssupply.com/catalog/index.php/cPath/470_496_22

    The TRD Offroad comes with an electronic selectable locker, meaning you can turn it on and off at the push of a button and it uses electricity to engage. ARB's model uses air pressure to engage, as an example of a different approach.

    You could install a locker in your current axle, find an axle out of a wrecked TRD Offroad and install that under your rig (and figure out the wiring to make everything work), or just upgrade your whole rear axle to something that has many different lockers available (Ford 9", for instance). If you take that last approach you might as well find one with disc brakes while you're at it.

    Regardless of the route you choose, figure a grand+ for the conversion. Less if you're handy and can do the work yourself. Going with an automatic locker over a selectable one would keep cost down too, but know what you're getting into as you'll need to be extremely aware when driving on pavement.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea what manufacturers make lockers for our axles. I went with the Offroad package specifically for the factory locker.

    Unless you do a good bit of serious Off Roading, you shouldn't spend money on a locker. What tires are you running?

    I fail to see how this has anything to do with this thread.
