Need help installing Aussie Lockers in Las Vegas
I have some Aussie Lockers that I want to install on my 2000 TJ - front and rear. Unfortunately I don't really have the tools or experience to do this. The directions don't look too bad and I could probably grind through it over the course of the day, but would prefer someone experienced to get it done right.

Can anyone recommend any affordable shops in Las Vegas that can do this for me? Or even a forum member with experience doing this that wants to make a few bucks helping me install them (or more accurately me helping you install them). I am in Las Vegas, NV.

2000 TJ with D35 in front and D44 in rear. Thanks for your help.

Tried to PM him, but it says his private message quote is full and can't accept any new messages. Thanks though.

dont forget to get a set of feeler guages to measure the gaps for the aussie. i had a buddy help me out with mine and he had all the tools luckily.

Yeah I read that in the instructions. I haven't got any response for private parties to help with this. I even emailed a few of the of the 4x4 clubs here in LV without any response. I guess it is either a b*tch to isntall and no one wants to get involved or everyone is on vacation this week.

I probably will end up taking it to Adams Driveshaft in Henderson. They gave me the best quote and seem to get glowing reviews. Still more than I was looking to spend but apparently they do good work.

It's really not very difficult if you just take your time with it. I'd suggest having a vise handy as well.

I would be more then happy to help you
unfortunatly I'm in pahrump about 45.min. away
allthough you can bring it to me and go hang out have some lunch and play some slots I will have them installed in a couple of hours

I never recomend the aussie or aany lunch box locker in the rear they work good in the front but are short lived in a rear application your better off with a full carrier type of locker like the detroit

when I say short lived it could last 2-3 years or just a couple of months

Thanks for the offer. I ended up going to Adams Driveshaft in Henderson. They were pretty helpful and seem to do quality work. Next time I need to some work I'll hit you up.

Funny your comments about the "short lived". I think you could pretty much say that about anything you install - might last a few months, might last a few years. For a few hundred dollars, if I get 25k miles on them, I will call it even. My jeep is maily for recreation and offroading, not really my DD. So if they help with the offroad, which they do wonderfully, I am happy.

The time now is 12:05 PM.
