You didn't replace the carrier that's why

So if it's to be a lunchbox, I'm assuming Spartan is the brand to go with - yes?

They all have the same basic design. I've heard great things about Aussie lockers. I've ran a lock right and grenaded two of them.

Thanks. I just looked at the Aussie. Looks a lot like the Spartan, except better warranty, 100% US made and claims "brake job easy" installation.

Incidentally, how did you imploded the Lock Right's?

I run an Aussie and I like it, but I also installed a Spartan in the back of my friend's full size Bronco. He drives like an ******* and it has stood up just fine.

I usually run Lunchbox lockers before I regear my rigs and go with selectable's

I have run Lockrights in my TJ (They are Junk Grenaded both of them (1) D30 & (1) D35
I ran an Aussie in my 95 It was a nice locker I tried to kill it ended up snapping both rear shafts and bent the housing and the locker held up It's in my buddys XJ now (I swapped in a XJ D44)
My XJ has a Spartan. It was the easiest to install, it is quieter and the pins are huge compaired to the Lockright and Aussie.

OK, great info!!! Now into the stories I've heard of front automatic lockers making driving a new experience in short changing. Is this only in 4wd? How much will it affect 2wd driveability?

In 4WD on high traction surfaces like rock you'll want to grip the wheel tighter you will feel it pull the front around corners . in 2wd they will be invisible other then some clicking at lowspeeds making tight turns into parking spots

I emailed Aussie. Got a response within the hour. They said if I drive in 4wd on pavement in the winter to pull the locker in Dec and reinstall in April. Interesting idea.

I honestly cant contribute on that subject. I didn't get the chance to drive in the snow much last winter before she got torn down for the V8 swap. Trying to turn in the mud in 4wd is a pain so I'd imagine it will feel the same or even worse. Just keeps trying to pull straight...

Aussies front and rear on 35. No problem. No, your axle isnt going to explode nor will you do a 360 on ice

Now for the dumb question: Does an Aussie or Spartan fit under the same cover or do I need a new one?
