Most aftermarket part manufacturers dont update thier year compatibilitys til too late. Yes....If it's for a Ford 8.8" 28spline, it'll fit your axle.

you can use either one and they get torqued to like 35 lbs or something low like that. If you use the RTV get the red its the strongest if i remember right

First and foremost....you should have someone knowledgeable with differentials do the install. You are changing the carrier.....with changing the carrier, you need to check the backlash and the tooth meshing of the ring gear and pinion gear....moving of the carrier left or right may be needed and requires the use of shims. This requires special tooling and previous experience. You dont want to roast your teeth and fall apart in chunks because of improper install do you?



I use Copper RTV silocone....color of the silocone really doesn't matter at all....it's all the same stuff.


You want to lay a thin bead like pictured, then start the top bolt. I like to tighten from the top down. Top hand tight, then the next two, the next two below that, and so on. then go back and give it a 1/2 turn in the same order as the prelim tightening. Idk why I do it, it's just how I've always done it.

Ummm you dont change the carrier when installing the Powertrax No-Slip. It replaces the spider gears. Also that is the correct part number. I had the same one in my Ranger. You can do the install your self. Its easy.

The color of the RTV does matter. Each color is made for different temperatures and different uses.

thanks for the info, but the no slip powertrax locker can be installed without
removing the carrier ,it replaces the spider gears this is why they call it a
lunchbox locker ,correct me if i am wrong.

For this application, any color silocone will do.

You wont even notice it. It'll remind you it's there at times.....like in parking lots turning.


I've got a manual and an aussie locker....it's somewhat violent in parking lots. Otherwise, I dont even know it's there.
