aussie vs detroit ez locker for the front axle

so I will be doing some axle upgrading shortly and was curious as to what type of front locker i would benefit the most from....(these 2 are in my budget) I know a ton of guys run aussies...but the ez locker is on sale for 199 right now...what are the differences between these 2? also what is the benefit one over the other, or are they very similar? also what about installation of them...i really dont know much about the ez locker, i was planning on going with the aussie, but now that the ez locker is on sale, it too looks pretty attractive.

Hopefully others with experience will jump in, I have heard that the Aussie and the Lockrite are very good and either would be a good choice. The D EZ Locker is not as strong a unit and has gotten bad reviews.
