Best selectable locker for D30?

Okay so here's the final plan Im gonna keep both the D35 and D30. In the rear Im going to be running a detroit locker with the Super 35 Kit (w/ c-clip eliminator). I will also be using a TNT Customs Truss. I figure if people like Silvergoat get keep them going on their TJ why not me. Considering I do Jersey and PA wheeling mostly mud, water, and a few rocks here and there is nothing like you guys have out west. In the front I'll be running a selectable locker haven't decided which one (but DO NOT want to run an ARB). Just have heard too many stories about having to rebuild the seals and what not and I don't want to have to run an air supply. So instead I'll go with an electronic or magnetic actuating locker. Ill also be running the Super 30 Kit also with the TNT Customs Truss. Both will have Riddler diff covers. Please let me know your opinions on a good front locker tho and anything else I should ***. Also the gearing will be 4.88. Thanks!

There's not a lot of choices left especially if you do the Super 30
The Auburn Ected is actually a dual stage limited slip
Eaton Elocker - I think they make them for the D30 now
Ox locker - has it's own cover and is cable actuated.

Why not just stick to 27 spline alloys - much easier to find if you do break one. Keep the stock axles as spares

The ARB is air actuated

The OX is cable actuated

There both great lockers, just decide if you want to press a button or pull a lever.

Since your not a fan of ARB I would go with OX

Personally the rumors of ARB issues are nothing more than internet my brother's buddy's friend's cousin had problems with his or similar BS.

But if you truly are dead-set against the well proven nearly bulletproof ARB air locker (and I run a Detroit Locker so I have no dog in this fight), I'd definitely go for the Eaton E-Locker over the far more difficult to install Ox Locker. Ask Wheelin98TJ about his, he's very happy with it.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
