Project Locking Rear Diff

As I offroad with my compass quite frequently I have decided to take on a project that to my knowledge no one has ever tried with their compass or patriot, and that is a rear locker or LSD (limited slip).

The brake lock diffs BLD used on the FDII are great but sometimes they are too aggressive and the vehicle can get bogged down, having a mechanical device other than brakes transfer torque should really help out offroading.

I have bought a spare diff out of a FDII 09 patriot, and will update this thread with the progress I have.

I may end up not being able to do anything with it, but at the very least i'll be able to show pictures of the teardown because I've never seen our diffs taken apart before.

I have a '07 with a manual transmission, would something like this work for a manual, just to be clear the manual does not have the FDI, is this correct?
