Yes - this is true. Sometimes, you have to "help" the LSD to transfer torque to the wheel with traction by using the brake pedal (gently.)
I have a Torsen in the back of both of my trucks, and a TruTrac in the front of my '93. I love them. While not a locker, for 99.99% of the wheeling I do, these are fine. I do drive a lot on the street, and really wouldn't want a locker for that reason.
In your case, I would recommend the TruTrac - you won't be disappointed. I suggest spending some time in the dirt, learning how it works/feels, and how to use the brakes to help transfer power from the slipping wheel. An afternoon of this will build your confidence and knowledge - then you're good to go!
