Im making the call, till the 2nd of the new year everything you eat is at free and 0 calories and non alc. so enjoy your life and over indulge, we have a great excuse.

Im off to spend the 50th and last Christmas at the homestead with Mom in a couple hours, she's 85 and the big house has got to go.

So Im trying to beat the coming snow in the mountains thru Virginia and West Virginia up the gauntlet of I-77 corridor. awls some type of weather this time of year Im I'm sure I won't be disappointed.

So hard drinkers drinks hard. 

Cheers m8's

I've been wanting to make a snow/mild offroad machine out of my XJ for awhile. I was kinda put off by reviews saying Detroit lockers were terrible in the snow because of the hard locking/unlocking of the faster wheel. I've been considering an elocker or a limited slip for just the rear. I would keep the front open. What would you recommend Piston?

I had an old 1977 ford f250 pickup 4x4, had positrack in the rear and limited slip in the front don't remember if they were mechancel or clutch rear ends , but hell could drive through 3 feet of snow all day long, was like a tank, use to skid 3 ft butts by 30 to 40 foot long logs out of the bush for fire woods, high and low range transfer case and 4 speed trany, only problem was it got 10 miles per gallon empty or loaded, one tough old truck for winter, my Dodge cummins diesel beats it hands down for power and MPG but truck wise no comparison.

Marketing departments have put a whole bunch of names on things like Posi-Tractin back in the day then became Limited Slip from GM, Ford uses Trac-Lok in one place and in some option choices call it a Detroit Locker.

I think the locking device your referring to is this for a Dana 60 rear end.

Now look how marketing attached a whole bunch of names.

The above is more what I have in my Interceptor and in my  91 Silverado. a Clutch type limited slip Detroit Locker by Eaton corp.

Eaton axle was a very long time customer of my father, they were out of Cleveland..

The jeep world calls that a "lunchbox locker" but it's really a cheap way to get a Detroit locker typology. If I would go with the Detroit style, I'd get the true Detroit instead of the lunchbox. Stock my Jeep still has the Dana 30 in front and the 35 in the rear:046:. I'm thinking of getting G2 Dana 44's for the front and rear and they have some options for lockers or LSDs installed.
