Unhappy Locker/Limited Slip options for 3.7 Laredo

I tried to get rid of my 2006 Laredo with Quadra trac 1. No one wants it so I guess I am going to try to keep it.

This thing can't offroad anywhere as near well as my XJ with a limted slip.

I have tried to search for any options on installing a locker or limited slip. Seems like there are none if not any options since newer Jeeps have lockers. Heck I don't even know if I have a Dana or Chrysler or whatever.

Anyone know what I can install to get more traction?
I only have a 55Kmiles and have a "Certified Jeep" warranty. so I don't want anything too aggressive or rough riding...this is my comfortable ride that I use for road trips.

You do have a 8.25 and ARB makes a unit for us, There are a few guys already running it.

Re: Locker/Limited Slip options for 3.7 Laredo

ARB lockers are in the $800 range. I don't trail ride much anymore, not enough to justify the price.

There is a differential place nearby and the owner is really fair in pricing. I am going to see if he has any used OEM limited slips or Lock Rights. He hooked me up with one for my Dana 35 for like $50
