    I have a 14FF w/ a Detroit, D44 open. I am trying to decide if I should go w/ the Powertraxx No slip ($ 410), or an ARB ($670). Or any other options? This is for the D44. Any experience's w/ these would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    i would put the money aside and try and find a dana 60. but if you don't want too i would go with the ARB. the olny problem i have heard about them is that they unlock sometimes. but i don't think that it is a very common ocurance.

    ARB if you have/ want to shell out for a compressor. I personally like the powertraxx and it works great in my bud's car.... thinking it is how I'll go in the rear w/ mine. Not sure about a front, but why not... arb would be nice if you still street drive the truck in snow and ice. If it is strickly offroad I say why bother w/ the extra cost because chances are it will be locked all the time anyways.

    Here's another option that should be available soon. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.oxtrax.com>http://www.oxtrax.com</A>. You get the ability to select when you want the diff locked, without the leaking air lines and o-rings of the ARB.

    Hey Harry,

    Thanks for the link to Ox Trax. It looks like a good idea. I e-mail them waiting for a response..
