    Have my 08 4x4 4cycle no rear LSD or locker. What something back to get rid of the open diff. What would you guys recommend for the rear. I do live in AK so lots of snow and ice (heard a true locker sucks on ice and snow)..

    Stock LSD is probably the best thing for the snow/ice. Very smooth non intrusive

    Do some research on aftermarket. These factory LSD's are nice but they're finnicky in terms of oil & friction modifiers. I'd adleast compare pricing for both, considering you'll have to do a gear setup also. Afterall, if you install an factory LSD, it won't be 'warranteed' like an aftermarket should be.

    Problem is, there is no aftermarket one with 8 clutch packs , and now I believe our ordeal was pretty much related to the fact that nobody else have 8 clutchpack LSD so all the additives are made for smaller number of clutchpacks.

    BTW do you still have rumbling in yours? I have so far 4k miles on synthetic and no problems. So GM additive (2 bottles ) + Delvac gear oil definitely works.

    The aftermarket LSD's with smaller number of clutch paks - would they be just as effective as the ones with more clutch paks? How would you know the difference?

    No more rumbles. I added a second bottle of XL3 to mine (with the mobile 1).

    . More clutch packs will give you more torque transfer. I know lots of people complain about Limited slipps but I had mine in two wheel stand and still had pulled truck up the hill. So there is torque in it. Its not the same as the locker but it is much more then other Limited Slipps I had seen. this is going to be my 5th winter in New England and I am spoiled by its abilities.

    I am quite disappointed that it took so long.

    Google the Detroit truetrac LSD. - or search here. I put one in my 08 DC 4x4. They work great. No special gear oil required. “clutchless”
    Not sure if they have one that would fit your truck or not. Good luck with whatever you decide.

    Yea Truetrac is nice but I am not sure if you want that in Alaska. Unless your truck has Atrac or Auto LSD maybe but if not I would look at something else. Problem with truetrac is that there is no preload on it which means if one of the wheels gets on pure ice with 0 traction other wheel will not move at all.
    70% of 0 is 0 . ;)

    It replaces the diff carrier and would require a gear install & setup.

    Gear setups are critical. It can be done - however, if its not done right might not last. I'd have it professionally installed to ensure long lasting life of both the gears & the truetrac.
