FRPP 7.5 TRAC-LOK No Longer Available!

I have posted this elsewhere... but it is important info for almost everyone...

So... I committed myself to buying a posi differential with my next paycheck...

I went to AmericanMuscle.com to bookmark the web page with their 7.5" FRPP differential for $204.99 and
found that it is no longer available through them... I thought "no problem" since lots of people sell them....

Next I went to Summit, they showed the same price that AM had. $204.99 with free shipping so I bookmarked
the page and I waited for payday so I could order it...

Payday came, I clicked on bookmark and got a "This page does not exist" message. I did a search and sure
enough, Summit no longer carries it either.

Next I went straight to the source! (FRPP) and again, they have also discontinued this T-Lok differential
as it is no longer available on their website...

I went to ebay and saw that JEGS is selling them for $218 with free shipping, so I bought one from them.

WTF is going on? From now on are we, the one-wheel-peel V6 owners, going to be forced to spend two or
three or four times as much money just to get better traction? I can't afford an Auburn or an 8.8 swap!

Here is the AmericanMuscle bookmark. Ford Racing Traction - LOK Limited Slip Differential - 28 Spline 7.5in (79-85 V8; 86-10 V6) at AmericanMuscle.com - Discontinued
Here is the Summit bookmark. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/FMS-M-4204-C75/
Here is the Ford Racing page. http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts...rtKeyField=742

All show it as no longer available.
Sad.

Re: FRPP 7.5 TRAC-LOK No Longer Available!

AM has the page available if you backdoor your way to it from the "Staff Picks" list, but when you go to the page it also says this:

AmericanMuscle no longer carries the Ford Racing Traction - LOK Limited Slip Differential - 28 Spline 7.5in (79-85 V8; 86-10 V6). Please check out Mustang Limited Slip Differentials for an updated selection.

Just call American muscle to order one. I call every time I order anything, just to be safe.

Re: FRPP 7.5 TRAC-LOK No Longer Available!

I had considered getting either an Auburn or an Eaton, but since my only REAL need is for increased winter traction I can't justify the additional expense of one of the name brand differentials.

Stangmods.com have them.
-They also have gear sets (3.73 or 4.10) made by FRPP. For our V6's.
