Agreed, I went from a Gov-Loc in the 14 BFF in the Jeep to a Full Spool...   now THAT's a locker.  Not so great on the street in the snow though...  :-\

Went from the Gov-Loc (aka - "Gov-Bomb") in the 8.6" 10-bolt in the 99 GMC to Detroit TruTrac (TrueTrac? whatever) when it blew... I was pretty happy with it...



Regional differences in what some call one thing and others call another get complex pretty quickly...

Once overheard at camp... as we were standing at the FRONT of my Heep looking at the Dana60 (words I THINK he meant in ()):
"Wow, look at that "pig"... (differential)  That's a bigg'n.  What is that "rear end" (axle) you got in the front there?"

Referring to an axle at either end as a "rear-end" is one of my favs...  :D
