I am building Waggy D44's for my YJ in an SOA application. I am on a serious budget and want lockers. I originally going to go with Detroits. The front will have manually locking hubs. But now I've almost convinced myself to throw in a mini-spool in the rear and a lockrite in the front. that is the cheapest I thing I can go, except maybe a lincoln locker...
So what do you think of this setup for a non-daily driver...basically a weekend trail rig with causal road running?
if its a weekend rig maybe save up and make it bad-***. my buddy put an aussie in the rear and it works really well. i have a detroit in the rear of my axle, the PO put it in a d35 . but on a budget aussie's IMO are the way to go.
'90 I6 258 w/ Weber 32-36 Carb.
32" BF M/T's with cragar rims
5" BDS springs, MORE greasable shackles, XJ driveshaft, AA SYE kit, RE SS brake lines. Bilstein 5150's, 255/70 valving all around, 14" travel in front, 10" in rear.

The construction of both lockers is essentially the same. Just that the aussie's price and warranty are a little better then the lok-rite. I run a lok-rite and havent had any issues, I love it, but you'll save with an aussie.
