Why is the locker in the first picture different than the one in the rest? Which carrier is that?

When you go to mark your ring/pinion position, use a crayon or grease pencil, or score it lightly with a screwdriver. I used a Sharpie and it's mark was lost when I lubed the locker with axle grease prior to reassembly, as recommended by 4x4xplor.com's write-up.

That is the same locker. Just took a pic before I started greasing it all up. All those pics are from the Front install (D30)

you are right, I think I downloaded that first picture from the companies site. must be a model for a different axle. But they still work awesome! In these two videos both these guys struggled with the hill or couldn't make it at all. The blue YJ has an ox locker rear. The TJ has a lunchbox in the front. Of course no one videoed me but with both lockers in mine I just creeped up the hill, no trouble at all

I know what you're talking about... I have the Aussie in front and LSD in the rear and as I said before, wow what a difference it made

So I took it apart and switched the pins and springs and worked just like it should!
you didnt do the click test as per the instructions to see if it unlocks? before putting the cover back on, this should be done. you need to watch the locker unlock for both sides.
