Pros: easy install and good directions
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Easy install for the do it your selfer and the directions were perfect. An inexpensive way to increase offroad capability. I will update after some offroad use.


This thing works like a champ off road and is barely noticable on road. If it were not for the little bit of ratcheting/clicks at full lock on the pavement turning you would never know it was there in 2wd in the wifes TJ.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Double your traction, inexpensive, relatively easy to install.
Cons: It's not selectable
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought mine used from another Jeeper for my D44. By far the best thing I've done to the Jeep. Now I can go places in 2 wheel drive that I would have normally used 4 wheel drive. Adds so much capability to my rig. Even with a small lift, I feel I can hang with the big boys on some moderately difficult trails.

Pros: Great traction on-road and offroad. quiet reliable
Cons: locks when taking some tight corners at slower speeds and eats at tires because of this.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have these lockers in my front and rear axles on my 96 zj. I have not yet had a problem with them, though I do not try to tear my vehicle up while offroading.

Price: $249.00
Pros: Inexpensive and effective. Relatively easy installation, though I had a "real" mechanic do it. I hate to admit it, but, the installation was over my head. To many thing's to overlook and/or screw up. Cost me $200 for the install. I added outside axle seals, too. And, I got to watch and take photo's of the installation.
Cons: Not sure yet, it's exceeded my expectations so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The installation instructions from Aussie aren't the best. (Aussie Lockers: Lockers, aussie lockers, torq-masters technology, automatic positive locking differentials, automatic precision locker differentials, off road, off-road) I used installation write-ups from other sites (Stu Olson's Jeep TJ Web Site - N7QJP) plus (Aussie Locker - Dana 30 Front Axle Installation Write-Up) to supplement Aussie's instructions. I brought all the printed write-ups with me plus the factory service manual pages specific to the d30 to the mechanic that did my installation. Really glad I had it professionally installed by a guy that loves his work...$200 (installation) well spent as was the original $249 for the Aussie from Northridge 4x4 (Northridge4x4 Jeep Parts: Lockers).

Install Thread:

1st trail trip with the Aussie installed

This upgrade has, so far, done more to increase my off road ability then any other, except maybe ties (BFG KM2's/33's). Along with the ability gives me some additional confidence and peace of mind. I would absolutely endorse the Aussie.

I make great winch switches! PM me and I'll hook ya up!

Price: $263.00
Pros: Cheap, no differant than a (lock-right)
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is very easy to install, it took a little longer on the install time because I wanted to be as close as possible to the spec's. I had to go to the 4x4 shop and get some smaller shims you need to be .150 to .175 no more no less, I got .160. If you go below .150 you will not get your full lock-up (this will make more noise and slipping of teeth) If you go over you could break the locker (no noise until it breaks under lots of pressure) I have a 82 CJ7 running with 37” Boggers, Dana 44 front and rear, 4:88 gears, Aussie Locker in the front & Lock-Right in the back, 258ci, T-5 and a Dana 300 transfer case. So fare my jeep is unstoppable. I can barely tell the difference between the Aussie locker and the Lock-Right Locker other then the price$$.

Price: $399.00
Pros: greatly improved traction, very easy install, rear only!!!!!
Cons: none that bother me.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: the increased traction is nothing less than WOW! dont worry about the driveability issues that are pounded so hard by others. i am in ice and snow. anyone that knows how to drive wont have any problems. take it to a parking lot for 10 minutes and you well let your 16 year old daughter drive it no problem!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! i feel more confident in my jeeps ability than ever before. buy it.
suggestion: catagorize the directions per popular vehicle type and year first then axle style. (it is just a matter of adding a few words and rearranging the page layout)

Price: $230.00
Pros: Easy to install Phenomenal value Smooth operation Very solid when engaged
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I installed this in my front D30. I love this locker. There is a slight clicking when turning in 2-wheel on the street, but only noticed when the windows are down or top off and radio muted. This helped me hang with GSA-type tires, where guys with more aggressive tires were spinning. Possibly one of the best upgrades I've done.

Cons: None so far.

Comments: Bought this Aussie used from another JF member. It had 1.5 years of use and still looked almost new once I cleaned it up. It was a super easy install. Locks up great. Makes some crazy noises that makes normal folks stop and stare at you.

Price: $289.00
Pros: easy installation don't have to set up ring and pinion gears improved off road traction
Cons: full time auto locker handling quirks in slow tight turns not desirable on snow/ice
Recommended? Yes

Comments: It took me about half a day to install the Aussie locker in the front Dana 30 of my JK with no problems or surprises. There is a JK specific model number which uses different thrust washers. The instructions are clear and simple. The Aussie locker is unnoticeable on the street in 2WD except on very tight slow turns on hard pavement where you can feel and hear a clicking noise. In 4WD the traction improvement is very impressive on the trail. Any front axle auto locker is not recommended for snowy/icy road conditions unless you plan on keeping the JK in 2WD.

Price: $225.00
Pros: Invisible, strong, no maintenance, easy install, lifetime warranty - what's not to love
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: IMHO, the cheapest, easiest, best bang-for-your-buck mod I've ever done. I was able to install with basic hand tools in a few hours. The Aussie has a lifetime warranty against breakage. It's much cheaper than selectable lockers and always there when you need it. If you install one in your front axle be aware that you're steering on the trail will be a little stiffer because when your axle is locked the vehicle wants to go straight - all the time. This is a minor annoyance for the performance gain Vs. cost of the Aussie.
