    I have a 12bolt rear with factory limited slip.

    I want to install a locker, any suggestions for a truck that is used both on and off-road?

    I heard I can't install a locker in a limited slip diff? So I am screwed? This can't be right.

    Thanks all.

    I can't think of any lockers for a factory Gov Loc or posi 12 bolt .

    You need to either :

    Get an open case , a lockright , then reset gears , or pay someone to reset gears .

    Get a full case Detroit and reset gears anyway .

    Do the open case and lockright yourself , and hope for the best just removing and replacing with same setup .

    Or just get another 12 bolt with the same gears , open carrier, and add a Lockright .

    OK well this sucks. I guess I am going to get a 14bolt and install disc brakes and locker.

    HOW DO I FIND OUT WHAT MY GEAR RATIO IS?
    I think it's 4:56?

    do you mean you cant find any 4:10 gears to buy for your 44? ive never herd of 4:09, or are you talking about checking to see what gears you have and its only rotating to 4:09? if thats the case then you have 4:10s

    As far as driving, wheelin or whatever 4.10s and 4.09s are the same. You won't notice the difference. Make sure the 14bolt you get is open also, or the locker won't fit in there either.
