    Howdy, The quickest, easiest and probably the cheapest way is a "lunch box" locker. It can be installed without taking the carrier out of the housing and requires no bearing replacement or set up. It can be done at home with a minimum of tools.
    Next best way is to get a complete posi axle from the bone yard. Another easy swap that can be done with a minimum of tools.
    Next comes adding a posi to your existing axle. I would recommend an Eaton Auburn style Posi but there many more to choose from.
    A Posi like this requires special tools and knowledge and should be installed by a professional for best results although if you have the tools it can be done at home depending on your skill level.

    If you are looking for traction and street ability I would run an ARB air locker. It's what I plan to run in my truck

    I'm looking at the powertrax no-slip myself. Easy install and excellent lockup but still streetable and no wearing parts like clutches. Theyre breakable on the drag strip or with a high power V8 and huge tires but for normal people theyre quite nice, look up the pros and cons on the web.

    First you should figure out exactly what axle you have so you can accurately see whats available.
