So time for an update. Again from my contact at Eaton, there was discussion over which of the two Eaton differentials (the ELSD or the TrueTrac) that are currently listed for application to GM HD trucks 2010 and earlier would POSSIBLY fit the new (2012+) GM HD's. Upon learning of this from my contact I forwarded the link supplied by Aprilwine regarding the attempt to install an Eaton ELSD into a 2012. That link has a couple of pages of photos showing some of the unique characteristics of the new/current GM front differential. All I can say as of now is that I have received confirmation that the info in the thread found by Aprilwine has been received by Eaton and being reviewed. If I hear more I will update accordingly.

OK, enough time - prod them with a pointed stick.

I too would love to hear that either the Elocker or the Truetrack was available for the 2011+ 9.25" front diff. However, I also have a question. I've heard others say that a limited slip diff in the front is a really bad idea on snow and ice, because you can lose control too easily. But others on this thread have said they have used the TrueTrack in other vehicles as the front diff, and they say it's great. Why doesn't the TrueTrack have the same issues? Is it because it is helical gears instead of clutches?

I can't say why one limited slip would be better than another but the reason you don't one up front on snow or ice is you loose the ability to steer when both front tires are spinning.

Do you remember the good burnouts when you were a kid? How the back end would start going sideways? That's because a sliding tire has no directional control. That's whether the vehicle is moving and the tire is locked (skidding) or the tire is moving faster than the vehicle (spinning). You need at least one of your front tires rolling at ground speed to allow steering.

Selectable lockers are good for the front end because they allow maximum traction for low speed maneuvering but can be left open for normal driving.

I have no updates on this, but some food for thought,

I had one installed in my 01 2500, besides using it playing when it was first put in, big ditch twist the truck so a tire is off the ground.. push the button it locked and went, kids thought i was magical.... no abuse just crawling, 4L 1st gear type of deal...

flipped the switch last night, and nada, the dash light comes on to show you its locked but its not... also ad in the fact that YOU CAN NOT TURN when its locked... they forget to tell you that on the web page.. So its pretty much you have to have the tires dead straight to lock it, then you have to go straight, if you turn the wheel any it binds up and blows the power steering hose,

if i had known this before hand i would saved my money...
