3J = the actual TranX guys. They left and started 3J as soon as it was sold to Quaife.

 

This is a Gripper LSD.

My gripper looked different to that, mine was fairly old though

@ Allan, ours has more lubrication holes, a chamfer in stead of a radius and a blackening treatment, for the rest they look pretty similar to me. So it looks like a slightly revised design. This one was bought in 2015 if I remember correctly.

 

Currently regretting I haven't bought one for my own street car atm since the Quaife ATB is slightly disappointing once you have driven with a Gripper.

Yeah the chamfer and the holes are what stood out to me, I know the internals haven’t changed as I had to buy plates and their was only 1 kind. 

Mines was at least 15 years old I’d  have thought, possibly more.
