“Eaton’s aftermarket team continues to listen to feedback from our customers as we add additional products for vehicles operating in North America. We are excited to launch a Truetrac for F-150 trucks with 8.8-inch axles, and expand our performance differential portfolio,” said Jason Denardo, product manager, Aftermarket, Eaton’s Mobility Group. “This Truetrac will allow F-150 owners to easily improve their truck’s traction and performance.”

The Detroit Truetrac is a helical-gear style, limited-slip differential that maximizes wheel traction and enhances driving characteristics. Maintenance-free, it features smooth, automatic operation in forward and reverse.

Truetrac operates as a standard differential under normal driving conditions, allowing for unobtrusive operation. When a wheel encounters a loss of traction or the terrain changes, the helical-shaped gears mesh with increasing force, transferring torque to the high-traction wheel until wheel spin is slowed or completely stopped. When the vehicle exits the low traction situation, the differential seamlessly resumes normal operation.
