The Torsen and TruTrac are the same type of differential. Does Eaton make a TruTrac for the Super 8.8? The only reason to wait for one if the other is available is brand-whoring.

The F150 is the same type of vehicle as the Ram 1500. But there are more reasons to want one over the other than simple brand-whoring. Those diffs are the same type, but they're NOT identical.

Isn't that what I said?

I will never buy another Eaton e-locker.

Have had both fail in my TJ. 1 just will not engage and another grenaded.

IMO if you're wanting a locker, get something like an ARB or Yukon that is either completely engaged or completely open.

The Eaton uses a ball/ramp actuator, and I THINK the Ford unit does also. If you have it engaged in 2WD and very low traction, when the tires start to spin you get this torque lash effect that feels/sounds like it's stripping the engagement pins. I'm pulling my ELD and putting in a TrueTrac.
It would be interesting to know specifically how the ARB and Yukon units execute their locking function.
