Price: $250.00
Pros: Superior traction in difficult terrain, reliability, quality construction, made in USA, low cost
Cons: Nothing that could be considered a "con" with this product.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This product is of proven quality and is as effective, convenient and reliable as an auto locker can get.

I installed it in the Dana 30 front axle of my Jeep Wrangler. It has made an enormous difference in getting me through difficult terrain, namely muddy fields and trails during rainy hunting seasons. Since I've installed it, I have almost no need for my winch, HiLift jack and other mud-extraction devices, although I still carry everything along with me, being a Boy Scout and all.

When in 4WD I no longer fear getting stuck in the unpaved world I travel through while hunting in the fields and woods. When in 2WD back on pavement , I cannot tell it's there except for a very rare, soft click which can occasionally be heard in tight turns if the windows are down and the radio is off.

The Aussie is a top-of-the-line locker. I cannot believe that for $250 it has made so much difference. But it has.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Product works exactly as advertised. It's simple to install and can be done by a complete novice.
Cons: Unlocks going around turns. Will make people think your front axle has issues.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: **THIS IS NOT AN AUSSIE LOCKER. This review is on the 27 spline Spartan locker, and it operates on the same principle, so I went with it. **

I got this as a gift, but I knew the price beforehand. I installed it in the front D30 of my JKU, and I've been nothing but impressed. I did have to adjust the locker once post installation, but this was entirely my fault for doing a sloppy installation job the first time and not checking the backlash.

This locker is without a doubt the BEST $300 I've spent on mods thus far. It adds a HUGE amount of capability to your jeep; and to yourself as well. You can install it yourself in a weekend going slow, and you'll learn invaluable information about your axle.

I've run this locker for about 10k miles now, 1k with 35's and I haven't had any issues. Was very loud initially, but I switched to a heavier oil (80w140) and over the course of the last 1k miles it has been butter smooth. Would HIGHLY recommend.

Price: $260.00
Pros: Easy install. Works as advertised. Quieter than the earlier versions
Cons: The clicking on slow-speed parking lot turns may bother those super sensitive about such things
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Mine was for an 8.25. Rumor is that Torq Masters redesigned the Aussie when they moved production from China to the U.S. It does seem more smooth and quiet then the one I purchased in '08 for the 8.25 in my KJ.

Pros: Simple affordable and it works
Cons: Non as of yet. Took a little time to get use to.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Installation was a breeze. Dana 35 can have some clearence issues. If you get these go ahead and call ecgs and order up a new set of spider gear side thrust washers. Instructions were good and cusomer service was above and beyond. I was instaling mine on a sat and my clearences were off so I tried calling and one of there engineers called me back 30 mins later and answered every question I had.

Price: $249.00
Pros: Amazing off road performance
Cons: The benefits far outweigh all negatives...
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the Aussie installed in my rear axle. The added traction off road is amazing. They do make some noise and have a learning curve on road. I've found to take it easy shifting while raining because it unlocks and locks upon shifting. My jeep isn't my daily driver but even if it was I would be happy with the Aussie installed in the rear.

Pros: Gets you farther than you would have gotten un-locked
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Easy installation. I've never messed with differentials before but this was straight forward. Read the instructions or watch a video about it on YouTube and go for it. First time on the trail after I installed it I was easily going places I couldn't before. Wish I had done it sooner.

Pros: Locked Axle Cheap Rugged
Cons: Clicking is sometimes annoying in very tight turns as those in a parking lot. Not Selectable
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have run this locker in my HP Dana 30 for nearly a year now. It provides awesome traction. I've only gotten stuck once so far and that was because my open diff in the back dug me in to the axle.

The clicking is annoying at first, but after a while, I forget it's there.

Pros: easy infall, quiet, effective, don't know its there until 4wd is engaged
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install was fairly simple and only took a couple of hours. Gave me exactly what I needed as the jeep is still my daily driver. Don't know it is there until engaged into 4wd because it is installed in my front Dana 30. Once put in 4wd and the axle locked, the off-road improvement is like night and day!

Pros: great immediate traction, easy install
Cons: clicks sometimes around corners, put a magnet in the bottom of your diff to collect all of the crap that comes off after install
Recommended? Yes

Comments: highly recommended for the budget locker install on the d30. if i had a beefier front end, i would have went for something a little more pricey

Price: $300.00
Pros: Dependable. Releases the outer wheel with just a slight let-up of the gas pedal.
Cons: Clicks while turning when disengaged, not a big deal really.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I'm now into my 3rd winter with the Aussie Locker installed in the front diff of my Wrangler. No problems whatsoever with steering or handling on packed snow and glare ice. I run true winter tires in these conditions, the extra bite is what gives the Aussie the sensitivity it requires to know when to release the outer wheel in turns. Even when using my BF Gooderich A/T KO's ( not winter rated ) the Aussie will release instantly with the slightest let up on the accelerator.

Winter traction is greatly enhanced with one of these lockers up front and that is why I bought it. It also makes my Jeep far better at tackling mud.

I love the Aussie!
