The Eaton ELocker is an electronically-selectable locking differential designed for drivers that need maximum traction on-demand. The ELocker works like this: while driving under normal conditions, it performs just like an open differential. However, that’s where the lone similarity ends. If an obstacle is encountered – a rocky trail, muddy ditch or other challenge – the driver has the ability to actuate the dash-mounted switch to activate 100% axle lock for maximum traction. The electromagnetic mechanism locks, capturing all of the engine’s torque and sends equal amounts of it to the drive wheels. A second flip of the switch deactivates the unit to resume normal driving. In addition, the ELocker’s internal gears are net-forged, providing the strength and durability necessary for off-road and recreational driving. Unlike traditional forging, net-forging allows for a more precise gear which improves performance and reliability. Moreover, the electronic control also provides added reliability over similar air-controlled products and a cleaner overall install. Only Eaton offers the broadest portfolio of differentials to meet the unique needs of performance and enthusiast drivers on the market today. Their lineup includes locking and limited-slip differentials, automatically engaging and driver selectable units as well. Choosing an Eaton Performance differential not only ensures ultimate performance, but their superior product quality reduces time spent in the garage and decreases wallet-draining driveline repairs.
