    M J, are you unhappy with your Power Lock? I just bought one off Ebay for my front 60. I currently have a Trac Lock and it will "one wheel" in really thick / deep mud so I want something a little better.

    I have a spool also but I'm afraid it would continually break axles or joints. I can't see spending the money on a Detroit since I have the spool ( I figure they'd act about the same).

    Nobody around here has a Power Lock so I'm guessing about how it will act / drive. How are they?

    they work fine.
    I only want the detroit for the 1% times when the powerlock releases.
    and like your situation no one that I know has a detroit front to let me see how it works so I want to try it.
