In my jeep it definitely had a chirping locking popping going on w/ such tight turning radius. The reason I had one in the Jeep though is because I was way happy w how the one in my old 95 f150 ext cab was. It clicked on tight turns but nothing bad at all. This is the truck that had the true trac in it as well. The off road capabilities went down a bit but the on road was better. If I were to buy another plug in locker I would spend a little more and get the Powertraxx. Its supposed to be stronger and quieter than the lockrite that I liked so much. OFFROAD IS AWSOME W A LOCKER. You can almost do as much in 2w than most stock 4wd can do. When my stock LSD goes its either the Powertraxx or the true trac. The plug in lockers are easy to do yourself. Saving BIG $$$$ No need to pull gears like almost any thing out there. Hope this helps.
That was good information, and I'd agree with that 100%. You probably won't notice a locker on a heavy truck as much as a jeep because of the weight difference.
And you won't notice the difference between a locker and a limited slip untill you get stuck.
Even though it's overkill for me, when I gear down, I'm getting a rear locker, but probably a Powertraxx.
The only time my factory lsd failed me is when I needed it the most.
