Tractech’s Gearless Locker

Serious traction for serious situations, every four wheeler’s dream. I’ve personally had experience with three different models and makes of lockers in the past. With all honesty I can say the Detroit Gearless Locker has them all beat for smoothness, handling characteristics and noise reduction. The locker came well packaged and included a video, well written installation instructions with good …
