    I was just wasting time online last night and came across this type of differential. I talked to a co-worker who has this system installed in his FWD Mazda 6 and says it's the best thing for differentials since sliced bread. The concept is cool, I was just wondering how well it works in our Front, real world style (Using 4WD in normal traffic conditions as well as Off-Road). Has anyone messed with this?
    I really do not have any way of justifiying the expense, just curious.

    I had one in my old 2WD Suburban, and, yes, they are awesome. I have been told that Detroit doesn't make one for the newer Toyota axles yet.

    Besides, you already have a locker in the rear. If you want something for the front, you should get another locker. The Limited Slip of the Tru Trac isn't made for serious off-roading. With the 4WD and the locker, you should be able to get through anything. If you were just using the LSD in the rear, that would make more sense.

    Hope this helps. Cheers!

    Chevy/GMC label these as G-80 rear end diffs, and they work great, there is even a clip on youtube. You could also check Richmond gear, they have one as well, bring your wallet, Chevy/GMC adds about 4000 for this option.
