I have one in my rear axle and like it a lot.

But a search will give you a lot of info. In my opinion, the lunchbox lockers are really all very similar.

Check out the Spartan locker while your at it... It's the new kid, cheap, and so far people like it.

I have one in my dana 30, and i love, obstacles that used to be challenge are a walk in the park.

Mine took about 8 hours to put in though, it probably would have only taken 3 or 4, but i messed up the first time (wouldnt disengage) and had to take it all apart, and redo it.

IMO one of the best 250 bucks ive spent... for the best price to to northridge 4x4.

Not to beat a dead horse, but I've got Aussie's up front. They work as advertised. I love 'em

Do some reading and research before you install one in the rear. A lot depends on your set up and what kind of rear end you have, 35 or 44 and so on. I have the Richmond Lock Right in my dana 30 in the front and I love it. From what I have read, they are all pretty much the same. Mine does click when in 2 wheel drive going around corners on the pavement.

I had one in the front axel my YJ when I sold it. Loved it offroad, but it was a bear in the snow and ice driving on the highway or paved road. If your never in 4 wheel drive on pavement then I say its the best bang for the buck (any lunchbox locker), but if you drive on snow or ice on the roadway in the winter I would save your pennies for a selectable locker and upgraded shafts.
