Ok, lunchbox lockers in a Dana 30. Good idea, bad idea? Thinking of tossing in an Aussie until I can afford a nice selectable. I really want the front locked up for the jamboree in October. I want to play on the hard trails!

Certain gear ratios require you to move the carrier to install one. Do it!

I am running 4.10s if I upgrade to a full carrier unit down the road I'll re gear to 4.88. Any recommendations on best place to buy? Direct from Aussie?

3.73s require the carrier to come out.

They aren't called Aussie anymore. But yes, straight from them.

Been awhile since I checked prices but Northridge 4x4 always seemed to have good prices. http://www.northridge4x4.com/shop/au...-dana-30-13027

I installed my front locker today. I didn't take as many pictures as I had meant to.

I started by jacking the Jeep up and putting some jack stands under the frame. I removed both wheels, front calipers and rotors. I then removed both axle shafts and removed the diff cover and carrier.

I then removed the ring gear from the carrier.



Using a punch I removed the roll pin that hold the diff pin.




Turn the spider gears inside the carrier and remove





Be sure to remove the thrust washer from the side gears and swap it over to the side gears on the locker





Locker side gears installed


Assembling inside case, diff pin there just to help hold things in place.


Locker all assembled, diff pin reinstalled with roll pin.


Installed back in axle

After the locker install I started building my rear bumper.

I started with a piece of 3"x4" rectangle tubing. Will have a 2" receiver and 2 d ring tabs.

I only finished about half tonight. I think it will look and work great when done!

Sounds like fun I think I might have to get myself down from Quebec one time for this kind of event. Post some pictures for us please and have a good time.

This was a very common conversation at the Jeep jamboree this past weekend!
