I run Lockrights front and rear.

The Lockrights are less expensive than the somewhat quieter Powertrax.

I went the less expensive louder/route as mine is not a daily driver. They are bearable. I incorrectly put lighter gear oil in the first time and they were pretty loud. Everyone who heard them as I was making sharp turns in parking lots etc. would flag me down and tell me something was terribly wrong with my JEEP and I would have to repetitively explain that it was just the lockers. Got kind of old but I do love the way they behave offroad. Worth every penny!

When I recently got off my dead butt and changed gear oil to 90W-145 (I think? there abouts anyway) and they have settled down a whole lot (you can still hear them click when axle is differentiating) but bearable and MUCH, MUCH cheaper than selectable lockers.

I run stock axles (D30 and Chrysler 8.25 rear) with only 32" tires and they are well suited to my wheeling and budget.

Hope this helps.

I MUST take a newer picture!

so i got a powertrax on ebay, new for a great deal but reading into it more, and looking at the part number....

Lock Right/Powertrax 92-0382-2705 CHRYSL 8.25 27 SPLINE OPEN TRU

Lock Right/Powertrax 92-0382-2725 CRHSL 8.25" 27T TRAC-LOC TRK

idk if i have trac loc or not, but the one i ordered is the 2725, with trac loc.... does this matter?

Trak lok is for the limited slip type differential from the factory. Check you diff tag to see if it says limited slip, or limited slip additive or something of that nature

as to whether it will work or not, If you do not have trak lok I would guess that the trak lok locker will not work since they have different part numbers, but you never know
