Thanks for clearing that up. I guess I better tear down the old one before I order the locker

Thanks for all the info on the various lockers. I'm also looking into locking my newly acquired (old) jeep! So, for a ride that will not be a daily driver and primarily a "play" vehicle, would you go with a Detroit locker or the PowerTrax (AMC 20 rear and Dana 30 front).

Welcome abord newb. Just make sure you know exactly what you have, and hope you have a open rear. You will have more choices and save some money too. Post a pic of your new old jeep too. https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=240944

The Detroit locker is going to be stronger than the Powertrax, but then again I've rarely heard of a Powertrax lunchbox locker breaking, even when beating the hell out of it. I think Aussie even warranties their locker for ANY amount of hp that you can supply your axle. All in all, I'd go with the Aussie/Powertrax just because it's cheaper and it will do the same thing as the Detroit.

Ordering my aussie for the front dana 30 tonight. Probably going to order the powertrax no slip system for the rear dana 44. (a little more pricey, but it is supposed to be quit, and more streetable. I will keep all of you posted.

Sounds like a good combination to me. Eventually when I rebuild my rear AMC 20 I will probably go with the Powertrax No-Slip as well, and I already have the Aussie in my Dana 30 up front.

Does the aussie come with a cross shaft?

Yes it comes with everything you need. When I put mine in it was pretty straightforward. The instructions suck, but take a look at that website I linked to earlier.

Really the hardest part for me was getting the axle flange off and then pulling the carrier out of the differential housing. Sometimes it will come right out with little effort once you take those 4 bolts out that hold it in place, but mine was difficult. I ran a strap all the way around it, wedged a crowbar in there against one of the tie rods, gave it a few good pulls, and then it finally gave and I flew back, hit the back of my head on the front bumper, and then the carrier landed on my right leg and left a nice bruise for a long while.
