What about one of those lunchbox lockers like a lock right or the other one they make. I've been considering one of those (or possibly 2) but haven't been able to convince myself they won't ruin the road manners of my dd.
Ok well. You know the Auburn and the Ford unit would need to be rebuilt after a certain amount of mileage. So I'm just wondering if you realize how big of a pain it is to do the maintenance? The auburn unit must be sent off to be rebuilt so that means close to 2 weeks of down time for your truck when the unit is being rebuilt. Both units are full carrier replacements so anytime the unit needs rebuilt they will have to be pulled out of the axle. It is not a good idea to take a carrier out and then put it back in without setting up the gears again.....so do you plan to pay someone to re-do the gears every time the units need rebuilt?
I dunno but it seems to me you should go with the E-locker if you want a locker and the Torsen if you are dead set on LS. Since both of those units are gear driven then you would never need to rebuild them and you'd save yourself headaches and cash in the long run. If you don't mind the downtime and extra cash to rebuild the units then its up to you about the other units.

I like the fact that the E Locker is gear driven. I can also select it or not. Also, if L/S's and Lockers act funky on ice, I just as well get the E Locker, that way, I can have an open if I need it, and a locker for boat ramps, or just in case I ever take the truck offroad. It will never need to be rebuilt and it will not eat tires! I think I'm going with it.
