    What are the differences between the PowerTrax No-Slip locker and the Detroit locker? Which one performs better? Which one is more consistent at locking when it's supposed to? Etc.

    They both have automatic actuation so I believe they are considered to be in the same class.

    Thanks.

    Money pit.
    The lockright is a "lunch box" type locker, the detroit is a more comprehensive install. (Google lunch box locker)

    The detroit will scrub the tires less/more smoothly on the pavement. Both lock up on the trail, but unlike selectable lockers they sometimes need a little wheel spin/throttle to lock up.

    If you are still going to DD the truck, spend the money for selectable lockers.
