Dana 60 locker. only found one. more?

im looking to get a dana 60 locker for the rear of my jeep. axle came from a 74 j20. it has 30 spline shafts and a trac lock limited (very limited) slip. the only locker ive been able to find is the powertrax no-slip part #92-0460-3025. has anyone been able to find anything else or using something else cheaper??

They do not make a lunch box locker for any Trac Lok applications. You will have to switch to an open carrier to install one or go with one of the above mentioned units.

Run a picture and measure the backlash. When installing the new carrier, move the carrier shims till you get the original backlash reading. This should give you the same picture you had when you started. The procedure will require a way to pull and press the carrier bearings. BTW, this is the same procedure you will have to go through to install any carrier based LS.

It sounds impressive, however, it is actually quite simple. Do some research and when you feel good, give us a holler and we can walk you through it.
