Trutrac rear 3rd member

Looking for a drop in rear third member with trutrac and stock 3.54 gearing. For disco/defender 24 spline. Could go for an ARB instead, but definitely not a detroit. Preferably with low miles. Seeing if anything is out there before I just buy a new Trutrac. Thanks

What's wrong with a Detroit?

Nothing that I've found. I've had one in my daily driver going on nine years, 80,000 miles. I can give you a list of the guys I've wheeled with over the years. They'll attest it has never failed me.

Locker of choice- mechanical, and always on the ready! Holds up ok under the 600hp K-30 ;-)

I wanted to hear his reason? I have run one in multiple vehicles with no fault ever! Blew a ring once but the locker was still good. Put in and forget about it! Best there is in my opinion, simple and you don't have to worry about compressors, lines or other issues. I wouldn't put up front but that's a different story. I do have a Detroit in a third set up that I'm selling! but you don't want a Detroit.

I don't have anything against a Detroit and they work great off road. I had one in the rear of a vehicle I drove in the snow/ice quite a bit and it would engage inconsistenly and I would be correcting oversteer quite a bit. Maybe it wasn't working properly. Anyone else ever have that issue?

That is why I went with a selectable locker. A friend of mine had a truck with a detroit in the rear and TT in front, snow driving was very sketchy in corners.
