I would watch this video starting at 1:50. It is the best visulazation your ever going to get showing how open diff's work. By the end you should see why one tire can go limp if the other side doesn't have traction. @2:50 you will see the downside of lockers and how they essays put stress on the axle when turning. Bld-break lock differentials - jeeps answer to Open Differentials spinning wheels All wranglers have bld - break lock differentials. It is basically like a computer controlled lsd(Limited Slip Differential). It will sense one wheel on an axle spinning much too fast to just be turning. It gives a little break to that spinning wheel to transfer torque over to the other wheel, that has more traction.
If you like trading off after 3 years then it would probably be a good option. Terms diff differentialgears in the bulge in the middle of the axle giving power to both wheels torque ability for a wheel to put pushing weight on the jeep. To produce torque you need traction and power. A spinning tire produces very little to no torque. Bld -break lock differential - computer Traction Control System that mimics lsd differential options - i will go through each in more detail below Open Differential - what you get without the option or the only option for Rubicons (They will have bld -break lock. Open differential both wheels on an axle are only going to get only as much torque as the wheel with least traction. So if one wheel is off the ground neither wheel would get torque.

It makes rebuilding the diff. It makes fluid changes more expensive. It adds complexity to the axle, costs you 295, and doesn't really do much at all to propel the vehicle in harsh conditions. I'd skip the option if I were you. Automatic lockers start at 300 and go up from there, and they really work. I find that the standard traction control system on these new JKs is plenty for the average guy. _ Lots of modded jeeps, trucks, and cars my favorite" from the press release.

Please correct me if you feel anything here is incorrect. Factory Option Anti-Spin Differential rear lsd trac-Loc (I'm not sure of the exact right spelling. I have also seen it Trac-lok, trak-loc, Track-lock, or even Trash-Lock) my quick opinion on it its not bad other than it will wear looking out and is rather weak from the start. I personally the would see if you like the factory equiped bld-break lock differential, and/or upgrade to an Eaton Truetrac that is a better (as most aftermarket stuff is).

Now, there are much better limited slips out the jeep one is a fairly poor one. But jeep lsd is fairly inexpensive (295 msrp and the best part is that it comes installed. If you are going to use it as a street vehicle, and you live up north where you will have to deal with slick roads in the d you don't feel like pulling axles (or paying someone to do it).just get the lsd. If you are big time wrencher, that would be doing a lot of wheeling. Avoid the factory lsd and get something better., 01:45 pm 4 12jkur, jeeper, join Date: Jan 2012, location: D/FW.

If it "senses" a wheel slipping, it tries to push more torque to the opposite wheel. It works just ok for a while, then as the clutches wear down it doesn't work at all.

Posts: 2,232, this forum has more pro-Anti-spin axle people on it than any that i've seen. So you'll probably get a lot of "yes, get it!" responses. But most forums and myself included feel like it's a waste of money. For the price of the option, you could be well on your way to a real automatic locker that works and will not wear out over time. The factory anti-spin axle doesn't work well, adds cost, and adds complexity. I personally would avoid it but that's just my opinion. Save the money and put it toward a real traction device later if you feel you need. Keep in mind that the jks have traction control that works better than the limited slip differentials ever did before.
Location: Hudson Valley, posts: 31, dsa drivers anti-Spin Differential rear Axle, here. I'm in the process of researching my 2013 Wrangler Sahara and have learned quite a bit on these threads. One of the options i am going with is the dme.73 rear Axle ratio and aht trailer Tow Group. What I haven't seen or read is an opinion on the dsa anti-Spin Differential rear Axle. I don't have any plans for any serious off-roading, so the question this option necessary for local commuting? Location: Hudson Valley,.

Upgrade to a jks telescoping Trackbar instead for uncompromised performance on-road and off. The front trackbar, or panhard rod, provides stability and safety on leaf sprung Wrangler models at the unfortunate cost of reduced suspension travel. Removal of the front trackbar dramatically improves off-road performance and suspension articulation. However, the additional forces absorbed by the leaf springs and bushings can quickly lead to premature failure and unsafe operating conditions.

Improve suspension travel on Wrangler yj models without sacrificing stability. The jks telescoping Trackbar provides 31 more suspension articulation off-road without sacrificing the stability necessary for safe on-road operation. In fact, the amount of articulation prohibited by the oe front trackbar is comparable to the amount of articulation gained with jks swaybar disconnects! The telescoping Trackbar is a direct replacement for the original and features a locking, slip-shaft mechanism that is greasable for smooth, silent operation. When unlocked, the trackbar becomes transparent to the vehicle, allowing unrestricted suspension travel and maximum off-road performance. To prevent binding, high quality, teflon-lined heim joints attach the trackbar to the axle and chassis. The relocation brackets supplied with most lift kits change the angle of the trackbar in relation to the steering drag link. The alignment of these components is critical to prevent bump steer—a condition that changes the direction of the front wheels in response to suspension movement, as opposed to steering input.
