Don't over-analyze this Aussie locker thing TeeJay, you're getting into analysis paralysis. It works fine, lasts a long time, and parts (not that I think you'll need them) are available for it.

When I installed mine, I was kind of impressed as far as the quality look of of each of the main pieces. The Aussie is not what I'd consider "cheap Asian" import stuff at all. the pieces all looked pretty damn nice and perfect. I guess they could raise the price to $400-500 to make it feel like a better product, but I'd guess that would lessen the competitive nature of the product. As far as replacement, there are like 4 pins, 4 springs and 2 gears. I've been keeping an eye on the sites and have only seen a couple of failures, and those were questionable on the installation being done correctly. If one of the gears was destroyed, the other would side would probably go too. meaning $200 bones to get you going again. but as others have said before, I don't think you'd have to worry about breaking the locker.

Where the TJ is concerned, that is true when you're in 4x4 but not in 2wd.

I have analysis paralysis syndrome myself I tend to over think things. I just bite the bullet now.

Dollar-for-dollar, an Aussie Locker or one of its cousins is one of the best improvements you can make to a Jeep.

Not at all Jerry... I just like to know that I'm covered if anything should go wrong in the future... But since replacement parts are available to service this locker I will be ordering it in a couple of days

I've been emailing a guy called David Johnson at Northridge4x4 and he was pretty helpfull the part number he advised me to order is AL-XD-13027.

So I have just placed an order for one D30 Aussie Locker from Northridge4X4

It should take two weeks to arrive here. And then I will annoy you guys as much as I can when it's time to install it... I hope you would all bear with me and forgive me if I ask too many stupid questions ... It would be my first time installation of such thing

I have just thought of something.

If in the future I wanted to regear my diffs. I wouldn't need to replace this locker aswell, would I?
