There are a boatload of possibilities on the rear end and I'm going to presume you mean the one you currently have in your truck. If you care to PM the last 8 of your VIN and approximate mileage, I can tell you exactly what you have. Detroit lockers do what you have in mind. I'm sure there are other brands that someone will recommend shortly.

I recently did a gear swap from 3.92 to 4.56 and added the Detroit Truetrac at the same time. It works great...no clutches...all done with special spider gears. I also added the large capacity finned PML cast aluminum cover. Along with Lakewood traction bars. That pretty much takes care of that. Now I need drag radials.
