that does look pretty legit. I will probably just stick with the locker only though. And try to install myself and save some duckets!

Just get an aussie for a quick fix at the moment, but if you got the $$ then get a locker. Have you not considered ARB or you just dont want to deal with a compressor

I do want to keep my jeep for a long time but I wont be able to drop lot of $$ in it for at least a year and a half so I just purchased some aussies w/ 4.88s to wheel for that time. Future plans would be axle swaps so I decided not to go ARB or Ox due to price and time I will keep them.

I decided to go with OX because I like the cable actuation. and it is straight forward on/off. I did consider ARB but yea, don't really want to deal with a compressor. I figure, both are pricy and if I have to spend the money to fix the jeep, I would rather just get a selectable now over a lunchbox or aussie locker because that way, I won't have to go back into the diff again.

As for the shafts, I pulled one, it is totally fine. So I have no problem riding on the stock shafts for a while. Untill later on when I break one, or just want to upgrade. And yea, Superior Evolution series was the plan

forgot to add: I have a pickup truck to drive also, so it's no big deal waiting a little bit longer to get a selectable locker.

And Hollister, wish I could go, but my jeep's broken!

Hey Andrew I don't know if you will actually see this. But I have been meaning to ask you about the Antioch hills. A few people keep asking me about them for wheeling. Last we talked, the cops were trying to get back up there at night. How is that whole situation going?
