    A Lockright in the front axle would be awesome, and not affect your Jeep's driving or steering on the street while you're in 2wd. The Aussie is very similar to the Lockright in terms of on and offroad characteristics with their only minor trait being some occasional mild clicking when you're turning left or right on the street when you're in 2wd. The Powertrax No-Slip (Powertrax also makes the Lockright) is very similar to the Aussie and Lockright but it is virtually silent when in 2wd on the street. That's what I have in the front of my TJ, it works great offroad... same as the Lockright or Aussie would.

    There's no gear setup involved in installing this kind of locker. Most guys who are handy with tools and work on their own Jeeps who can read and follow instructions should have no real problem installing a lunchbox locker like a Lockright. Remove the axleshafts and spider gears inside the carrier (case), insert the lunchbox locker inside the carrier where the spider gear used to be.

    Hey Sapper,
    I've had Aussie lockers for 3 years now and they work great. Another point is their Customer Support and Tech Support are the best. I had a problem with the new one I installed a few months ago, so I called them and Bill, Aussie Pres., got back to me within a couple of hours and told me he had another on it's way to me. I received it the next day, and sent him back the first one which he sent to the engineers in Australia for examination. You can also buy direct from them, saves a few $$$. Hope this helps you decide.

    IMHO all lunch box lockers are the same. Lock rite, detroit, aussie, etc, buy what ever you get the best deal on. That said, I would run a selectable locker in the front. I was mad yet again this past weekend because my rig steers like a battle ship with the front spooled. The lunch box is more forgiving than a spool, but still takes away from the steering. If your rig doesn't have lock out's your better with a selectable too. I am saving my $$ for a ECTED or an OX.
