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.

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.
