Eaton? Sure looks like a Trash-Loc though. You are positive on the axle id.?

Its definitely a limited slip of some kind, but its not a Dana trac-loc. Trac-locs are a little beefier on the body, have round holes where the retaining clips go, and you cannot see the clutch tabs from outside. By beefier I mean the case covers more of the side gears and spiders.

I have never heard any thing good about the Trash-Loc in the front. Pretty lame in the rear also unless you are on flat ground or pavement. I would save up for at least a drop in locker, or weld it....
