I am not familiar with the SoftLock, does it go by another name? The Truetrac is not a locker, it is a limited slip.

What use/purpose are you expecting to get out of them? How much money do you want to spend? Installed or DIY?

Better at/for what?

air lockers are better in that they are only engaged when you want them. So open on teh street, open most of the time off-road, and then when you want to go up the hill or over the rocks, you kick it on.

Downside is cost (double a Detroit), and they can be finiky on the install, and some are prone to leak air and not be reliable as to actually engaging when you tell it to.

Detroits work, though. :):
