Here's a great writeup for you. It's for a TJ, but the YJ Dana 30 is mostly the same. The only difference is in the CAD and intermediate driveshaft. Should take you a day at the most (3-4 hours if you are efficient). Put on a Solid differential cover at the same time.

An Aussie is a great way to go as long as you don't use 4wd a lot in winter. I had an Aussie in my tj and absolutely loved it. It'd make a noise here and there but it wasn't bad. If you don't feel confrontable installing it I think I paid about $250 to have it done so it wasn't outrageous.

I live in Chicago and never really needed 4wd with the wrangler. I did engage 4wd a few times to see how it handled and anything over 10-15 mph it was a different vehicle and because of that I am going with a selectable locker in the front axle.

Heck! Its not even a noise but more of an audible click that is ONLY heard when 4wd is engaged.
A clicking noise from an unknown source like a bad u joint would be a concern, not a properly functioning locker

The clicking actually lets you know the locker is functioning properly and ratcheting like it should.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40

It only clicks in turns. Alot of my wheeling includes driving straight too, Then what?. That sound is not there to let you know if its operating correctly. Its a bi-product of its function.
My Aussie rear clicks on the road in the 8.8 but I rarely hear it. Maybe its because the 8.8 is so thick and deadens the sound or maybe its because the 4.3 duel exhaust.
Aussies front and rear are very safe off and on the road in all weather conditions

In the rear do you have the same issues with tire wear as a full case locker?

Tire wear is whats stopping me from putting an Aussie in my 8.8.

Love it in the D30 but afraid of the damage it would do on my new meats

I drive like 50/50 on/off road

I ran a Detroit in the rear of my TJ for a couple years and never had abnormal wear on the rear tires. I also had an Aussie in the front during that same time period. I welded the rear axle in my XJ and that one wore through tires. LOL

Bogle, update your profile, it says you still have a D35. On the rear axle, I finally bit the bullet and installed an Auburn electric locker and WOW what a difference from running a Detroit! OP, run the front locker and you're good to go. Leave the D35 as is and when you want to upgrade to a stronger axle spend the money for a locker. (I have a great deal on an Aussie locker for a D35..... ).

How are you liking the ECTED? Did you get it dialed in? Its gotta be worn in before it will unlock after stressful situations.

Yes, with a front lunchbox-style locker your front driveshaft will spin all the time.

You will probably need to balance your front driveshaft if you use the jeep as a DD.
