Aussie locker max tires?
Date: Jan 15, 2010
Reviewer: A JeepReviews.com User from (Netherlands)
I bought mine a few months ago, I live in the Netherlands and we were out in the woods with some mud and water pits. I have a cj7 4.2 with stock dana 30 and amc20 in the back, the Aussie locker was installed in the front. I had 35 inch BFgoodrich muds and I tried to get out of a little mud pit, very slowly I drove my left wheel against the wall and tried to get out, then I heard a snap and my u-joint broke! A few weeks later again (now the other side) again my u-joint broke off. I've de-installed 35 inch tires because I think that Aussie - 35 inch are a bad combination.
Oh man I'll be sure to stay away from Aussie then! I'll go with a Detroit or anything else but not an Aussie!

Hilarious

I thought my computer caused all those spelling mistakes in my post.... I now suspect that my Aussie locker is the real cause....

I broke a ujoint and an axle shaft with an Aussie. I certainly don't blame the locker. The Aussie survived the break - it works just fine.

You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.

An aussie claimed a u-joint AND an axle shaft? You better get rid of that thing man... I've been running a Powertrax for a while now and haven't broken anything. They just must be better lockers

With a Detroit in the rear, I broke my front drive shaft.

Note to self, let off the skinny peddle before the front tires land.

I broke them, the Aussie just happened to be installed. Different trips too, but both were on the same side.

I blame Canada and you need to push it a bit more.
