Ford racing 7.5 traction lock slip diff.

Is it really worth the money? I'm def. doing gears so should I just go ahead and do both??? My mechanic said same price for install. Whether I do one or both

Don't do gears without one, otherwise all the gears will do is make you eat the right tire up with the factory open differential
You'll spin your @$$ off everytime you try to take off hard

Here's the link http://www.troyerperformance.com/scr...?idproduct=404 it has the same parts number so I think it's the same... What do you think?

Read the reviews on am link for the ford racing ones it's a 4.8 star product good enough for me to keep 300 bucks in my pocket.

The last I've seen the ford one can handle ~300whp, a random few have broke it with stock power but there was bound to be something special in that case, the auburn is worth the money if you can pay it of course, my friend called auburn up and they said its rated at 500whp with using slicks >_>

300 seems a little low for the ford one I've heard higher but I guess it depends from the 48 reviews on am and the reviews on other sites as well as ford racing and the trusted name and 300 dollars difference I thought it was an easy decision.

Lol I'm not down talking them or anything, hell I probably have a good review on there too for this diff, but I am worried about how it's gonna take the sticky tires I plan on putting on.. It does great for the price that's for sure

I think im going to go ahead and get the auburn. The guys in the local jeep clubs (and my father and uncle) use a lot of their stuff, these arnt street jeeps either, and they beat the hell out of those trail rigs.

It's just whatever you like I'm on a budget and I'm not installing myself so that's part of why I chose the ford one.

Ive done some more digging. It seems to be a reliable unit. You should be happy with it. If your having someone else install have someone reputable do it. Its not fun to get your new gears in amd the whine like hell because the backlash wasnt set correctly.

If your going to put some serious power down invest in a 8.8 rear end.
