Which system is best? As with any facet of purchasing 4WD parts, there is no one item that is far and away the best for all applications. John Hendricks, owner of Northwest Off-Road Specialties, has over 35 years of off-road driving experience, from Southern Mexico to above the Arctic Circle, and he offers his advice:

All differentials sold by NWOR feature heavy duty cases that are up to twice the thickness of the stock Toyota. These heavy duty differentials eliminate case flexing which is the primary cause of gear breakage with oversize tires. The following differentials are full-time automatic traction devices and do not require air, cables, solenoids, and numerous small parts or hoses which will eventually fail-usually when you need the differential the most. Under real off-road conditions the less complex the product the more reliable it is!

LOCKER
The standard Toyota differential works great until one wheel loses traction. When all the available torque runs out through that weak link the vehicle is stranded with a spinning wheel. Another familiar off-road situation that will leave you stranded is the position encountered on rutted roads.

When one front wheel and the opposite rear wheel drop into deep holes, causing the axle to become crossed up, the upper wheels will turn to help get you where you want to go.

The Detroit Truetrac™ is a worm-drive, torque proportioning differential which makes it an ideal unit for front drive axle. The Truetrac provides superior handling a traction at high speeds, even in heavy snow or icy conditions. The Truetrac offers no resistance in the steering wheel because of its smooth power transfer between the wheels!The Detroit Softlocker™ is a tough depndable, automatic locking differential. The new Softlocker features special dampening in the unit without a backlash feel and sound! Extremely durable and helpful in downhill operation.

A WARNING TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS!

The “Lockrite,” or LA Locker, utilizes the stock Toyota case and replaces the stock spider gears using the original shaft. The Lockrite kit has stronger than stock internal locking gears and can cause rapid case wear, loose shafts and premature failure of your stock case. The Lockrite, we feel, should be installed in new stock cases only. Due to the above problems we do not offer the kit in our catalog.
