    Detroit trutrac for EJS?

    So I am going to Moab this spring. I don't have a ton of extra $$. I have a ford 8.8 in the rear with a Detroit locker and an open front Dana 30. I am running 35" tires. The reviews on the trutrac seem good but they don't recommend with 35" tires. Has anyone used them before? They are only like $350. I know they are not a full locker but I'm sure it will help. I would love to go with an arb but I want to get a d44 before I go that route and I don't want to be holding people back in Moab. Any thoughts?

    Honestly your rear locker will get you quite a ways. Most of the time when I have issues, is when I'm stepping up something and it lifts one of my rear tires off the ground. Engage rear locker and I almost always climb rt up. I only engage the front when I absolutely have to.

    If you plan on ditching the 30 at some point then look into a lunchbox locker such as an aussie. They go full lock when youre on the gas and run about $250

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
