Who here is running a powertrax no-slip in their Rear end (8.8)?

Wondering what the experience is like. I'm getting rid of my ECTED and was either going to run a no-slip (cause I already have a L/S carrier) or a lockright (going to get an open carrier). No more push button stuff for me. Too many probs and the pinhead mechs and stevedores at the docks love to play with "bright shiny switches" too much; in my case they played with it until it shorted.

I want to know how a lockright would be for a DD truck, on the highway, in the rain, etc...

in my book...lockright = aussie = e-z locker = no-slip. All are very similar to eachother, but the no-slip being the most differnet of them all.

Isn't the no slip the only one that requires a L/S housing, versus all the others requiring an open housing?

review of the lock-right by a member a few days after having it installed...

the no-slip fits into an open carrier.

They make a no-slip to fit an open and a L/S carrier, the part number is slightly different and the one for the L/S is a few dollars more. They also make them for 28 and 31 splines depending on your axle.

I ran a No Slip for about 2 years, never had any problems. Can get a LITTLE weird in the snow, but I had no probs even in upstate NY. Drive carfully and you'll never know it's there.

I also blew a shaft and carrier when I had it, only thing broken from the No-Slip was a spring....15 bucks later it was good as new. Strong little things...

Thanks all for the sound offs. Thanks Carl, I think I'll go with it (the no-slip).
