New axles, locker identification..

I just picked up a Dana 30 and 35 for 400 for my jeep. The seller said it they had 4.56 gears and a rear Detroit locker, which i believe is correct.


The Dana 35 also came with a disc brake conversion from a ford 8.8?


The thing i noticed is the Dana 30 seemed to come with a locker...
Is this a Eaton locker?

Eaton locker? Technically speaking, Eaton makes the Detroit lockers. There are quite a few lockers with just the eaton name: their posi unit, the truetrac and the e-locker. Not seeing the top of the pumpkin, I can't tell what you have. Just google the numbers on the locker housing, that's how I found out I bought a truetrac in my 8.8 rather than whatever the guy was trying to sell me.

It also seems that other companies that make lockers like ox made something like "super 35" kits, so I was just wondering if there it was made by a different manufacturer.

I don't have the kit in mine, just the locker, looks like i have stock axle shafts..

That is definitely the same locker in the rear.

The front has no writing on it that I can see..

Thanks guys so far, anyone have any idea what the front "locker" might be? When i spin the axle shafts they seem like they are completely solid, no ratcheting..
