    its good stuff, replaces the spider gears, not for use in the front if you have full time front hubs. great for the back though, a little noise but other wise great!

    I had Lock-Rights in the front and rear of my CJ-5 for years. This was my daily driver and my wheeler. Of course, I had lock-outs on my front axle. They were easy to put in and would run them again if I wanted lockers, and was on a budget.

    Notice that Jon stated "wanted lockers and on a budget"......if you can afford selectable lockers then do it and only cry once.

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    Selectable Lockers are great, but I'm still a big fan of just sticking a Detroit in the rear(this is just my opinion), and calling it a day. By all means though, if you have the opportunity to stick a selectable locker up front, go for it.

    I think I bought my first Lockright in 1989-90 or so.. I just knew I had the baddest CJ7 in town! Click click click click..

    I just found a brand new Lockright for my front D44. I think I bought it about 4-5 years ago.. thought I'd lost it or sold it.

    They're decent lockers for 35ish and smaller tires...

    Another brand of lunchbox lockers is the Aussie. They are said to be better then Lock-Rite at a cheaper price. I don't have lockers yet but I would go with the Aussie or a Detroit.

    Well, the Detroit line was bough out by Eaton, so it's now theirs. I would get Aussie.

    I have a detroit no spin in the rear of my jeep. It came with it so I am lucky. i don't have any complaints and it really works well. Pulled out a JK a while back without a problem. I am sure that it was in large due to the locker. It was buried to the frame in some mud. On road, there is some binding taking 90 degree turns if I have a little too much peddle, and my rear end will also come out, but I'm happy with it. I will be able to test it better soon.
