Front Trutrac diff?

Is there any negatives to running a front Trutrac diff? I do live and drive in snow country and my only concern would be how the front wheels adjust to the different speeds during turning when traction is low.

Thanks

Re: Front Trutrac diff?

Juls, all I can tell you is it used to be "the" diff to run in the front years ago. I don't know what happened along the way but I don't hear too many people talk about them for front applications anymore. I'm not sure that you can run a limited slip in the front and never have any negative effects in snow. They sometimes don't like to steer so well in the snow, but it's nothing that you won't learn to deal with.

I'd go with an E-Locker over the TruTrac, that way you can have a true open differential when you are driving on ice.
