I own a 96 Dodge ram 1500 and I want to put a locker in the rear differential. 75% of the time my truck is on the road so i don't need a heavy duty locker. I'm looking at an EZ locker or truetrac but I'm not sure which one is best for me.

Also consider the Power Trax ?sp? locker. That's what I'm going to install when ever I can afford to do that and change the gears at the same time.

Well, the EZ Locker is made by TracTech, the same folks that make the Detroit/NoSpin locker (same product, different market segments) so you know the quality is there.

The TrueTrac is a limited slip made by TracTech as well. Here is a <!-- BBCode u2 Start -->http://www.4x4review.com/products/drive_train/truetrac.asp" TARGET="_blank<!-- BBCode u2 End -->.

If I get the EZ locker does it come with all the necessary hardware? Do I have to change the gear ratio in the rear axle?

The EZ locker sounds like the best one for me.

As far as I know, it comes ready to install.
You do not need to change the gear ratio to make it work. In fact should be able to install it without removing the carrier (the part that really needs professional help) so you can do it in your driveway if you are mechanically inclined. Even if you have to remove it, you are not disassembling the carrier, so you remove it and reinstall it without worrying about shimming, backlash, preload, etc.

Sounds good. That will be my next project.
