Alright, anyone have any experience with Eaton, Air Locker, etc.?

My rear diff sucks. Second factory one in my truck so I am gonna say screw it and put something else in. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, if I am doing the rear should I just get it over with and do the front too? How is this going to effect driveability?

Thanks in advance.

well if u go with an E-trac or an ARB you have the availabilty of turning them off and going to an open diff. a detroit is nice as well but i would go with an E-locker or an ARB and unless you plan on wheeling it hard i would just leave the front alone for now. you wont notice a diffrence unless you wheel it

I don't think there are any aftermarket lockers avaliable for the AAM 11.5.Dodge's LS diff in their AAM 11.5 will fit and is considerably better.
{I assume this is in a D-Max?} If not and it's a 14bolt you have two options, Detroit or ARB.

I'd ask Brandon (BMDMAX). I recall he installed a Dodge pumpkin when he blew his G80 up.

Torsen style diff, fits the 11.5 Dodge and Gm, works like a charm, fits like a glove.
