    What kind of traction device would you guys recommend for a DAILY DRIVEN 14bsf that turns 36" tires? I have open difs right now and I can live with those because it is daily driven. However, if I do a gear swap then I might consider putting in some kind of traction device.

    What do you guys recommend, experiences, etc?
    Thanks

    I have a lockrite in mine. have had it in there for ..umm.. coming up on 2 yrs now. no problems to report with it so far at all. Was a simple drop in to the open carrier. Took less than an hour. Was also the least expensive option that I could find. Was just under $300 delivered.

    I friend of mine has a detroit locker in his sf 14. He has run it for coming up on two years. It's his daily driver and has 34" tires. No problems to date. I recommend a detroit to you with a truetrac as a less aggressive alternative.
