<Bing> That's it exactly. No one has yet to even hear my aussie click, in the front axle it won't click anyways unless in 4wd and even when in 4wd you won't hear it unless you wind down the window and listen for it. Compared to the EZ locker (other than the lawsuits
) it's a smooth cambered dog tooth design, made to lock, but smoothly ratchet when cornerning and locked in. I have driven quik-loks, ez-locks, and lockrites and the aussie has been BY FAR the best out of all of them. (to paultyler) What kind of axle is he running it in? Because in a rear wheel axle it will perform the same if not better than a lockrite, in a front axle it's totally invisble and silent. Oh and BTW about it being "new", it's not "new", it's been out for years now and only 1 had EVER come back for problems within warranty and it was due to an error in the INSTALL PHASE (IE not the lockers fault) but the company STILL REPLACED IT free of charge
Your statement about "I don't know anything about Aussie Lockers." is very evident by your reply
They are still the only locker (lunchbox style) on the market that boasts a NO TIRE SIZE LIMIT warranty. If you want to run an aussie on 48" swampers they don't mind, IF you manage to break it they will still replace it. Say the same for the other lunchers out there
(btw I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, don't take my response as a flame, just stating facts
My jeep has only ever killed 3 things, a cat, a deer, and my wallet. What's the problem officer?
1992 Red YJ. Lifted, locked, and loaded with beer (Disclaimer: This doesn't mean said driver endorses drinking and driving, please enjoy alcohol responsibly and do not operate any vehicle of any kind, thank you....)
Thanks to the price of gas here ($4.25 a gal) I just bought a mountain bike, 0" of lift, 0" of travel, MT's, locked rear axle, oh yeah, it's the sh#$.
