    I was wondering what you all would recomend for a locker or limited slip. My 85 is a daily driver and is running 32" tires, I don't plan on going over 33s. I have the stock GMC 10bolt 28 spline. My four-wheeling mainly just consists of mud. I am also limited to about $300 - 400. Recomendations?

    I have friend that has a 2000 GMC Z71 pickup he is going sell and asked me if I wanted the PowerTrax unit that is installed. We installed the unit about three months back and it works fine. I think he paid about
    $400 for it. We would have to check with PowerTrax to see if it will fit an 85 10 bolt. Let me know if
    interested.

    I had an 86 K10 short bed once and installed a Lock Right in the 10B rear. It is still going strong today after I sold it to a kid. He says he loves that locker. He goes in places where others who dont have any lockers. And this is in 2wd for him!! When I bough and installed it, it cost me $290.00 and took about an hour of taking my time. Taking my time meant cleaning everything, drinking beer, and installing everything back together. Oh yeah, and drinking more beer again!!!

    I would not get a lock right or ez-locker, I had one in my front axle and broke it in less than a month. I put a detroit in and has worked perfectly for over a year now.
