Home-made Posi-Lock

Has anyone made their own Posi-Lock (positive axle engagement)
system for a YJ? Is it hard to do? Is it worth trying yourself or better to just fork out the $200 for the real thing?

In case you decide to buy one

In case you decide to buy one, Collins Bros has the Posi-lok kits on Ebay for $149.

I dont know why they call that a posi lock, it just engages your axle, it doesnt lock your differential
