Which locker to choose?

Hey everyone. I'm in the market for a new locker and need help finding a good locker within my budget. I have a 1991 jeep wrangler dana 30 front ford 8.8 rear, 33inch tires and 4.10 gears. I drive onroad 75% offroad 25% which locker would be best for me within $350. I am thinking some sort of lunchbox style locker, but which brand is most durable and dependable? I have heard good things about the aussie locker. I have a friend with spartan lockers and he says they are great, but I have also heard some bad things about them. So what is your guys opinion?

I believe most lunch box lockers are basically the same. Maybe the one with the best warranty and customer service in case something goes wrong.

I have an Aussie Locker in my front, I would put it in the front for sure. They see to be a bit annoying in the rear. There are several different ones to choose from, I bought the Aussie because it seemed to be the most popular. 2 year warranty with no restriction on tire size or horsepower, and its made in 'Murica.

I have had several Aussie's and still use them. The newer ones seem smoother and I believe that they underwent a slight re-design when they moved production to the U.S.

The original Aussie is still made & sold under the Lokka name. For me saving a few bucks by buying one is not worth it. Torq-Masters, Aussie's parent company, spent millions to move production to the U.S. and to use U.S. steel. When Lokka made the Aussie they were made in Australia of local steel. Then they started using Chinese steel and the failure rate climbed. Then they moved production to China, a fact that they try to hide. Their website implies ties to Australia and it was designed there but that is misleading. This move and the increased failure rate was the main reason behind the move to US production.

I will say that I have friends that swear by the more expensive Lock-rite No Slip and they are the smoothest drop in I have seen. This does not apply to the cheaper Lock-rite.
