    The Company's web site is

    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.tractech.com/>http://www.tractech.com/</A>

    Of course there is nothing objective there. Do a search on this site for it. There is always talk about it. I posted some decent info on Powertrax's soft locker (No-slip) a while back if you want to search for that too. I'm not sure if you are set on a hard Detroit locker.

    Hope this helps.

    I dont know of any on-line comparasions, but I do know that Leon Rossers says not to use the EZ-locker on any vehicle with tires over 33inches.

    I'll second that. I had an EZ in the rear and it worked great with 31s. On the second trip with 35s it broke. It was on trail 5 at Tellico. I got to pull the rear shaft & drive back home on the front end. My friend Tony just broke the EZ in the front Dana 30 (?) on his CJ-5 last weekend. That was on trail 9 at Tellico. Maybe there should be a "No Tellico" warning. The Powertrax/Lockrite brand seems to hold up much better. If you want a drop in spend the extra dough and go with one of the Powertrax/Lockrite units.
