I'm a little late I know but I wanted to mention how pleased I was with the Aussie Lockers front and rear over memorial day. We were at Little Naches in Washington State and did a 9hr ride through the shoe string trail and man what a differance from 1 year to the next. It was nice not having to beat my rig to death because of traction issues. Anyway a big thumbs up for the Aussie Locker.

I purchased mine from offroadlockers.com for 240.00 a piece. I understand the pros and cons but the good deal is I purchased 2 of these for much less then you pay for an ARB or the like and any shadey tree mechanic can do the install.

9.25 ring? I'm assuming that is a larger than stock pumpkin. Is that a heavy duty option?

No I didn't change the birfs and up to this point everything is great. I just have some driveshaft angle issues to work out.

it's always on. it can be annoying when going through drive thrus (or any driving in a high traction situation), but you get what you pay for and this is one of the best deals for cheap lockers

I just finished test driving my freshly Aussie Locked cruiser..... HOLY FREAKING MOLY. Absolutely amazing. The clicking noise is not bad. My friends kept raising their hands up in the air when I would turn tight because it sounds kinda like the ratcheting of a Roller Coaster.

Installation was real easy and the road manners are fine. If I wasn't looking for the difference I don't think I would notice it.

Haven't had it on the freeway yet, but round rural streets and our little bandit trails around here it is awesome!

I idled up some stuff in 2 wheel low that used to be hard to make it up in 4 wheel low. I even stopped cold on some climbs that I used to have to get a run at and was able to get started again no problem.

Very satisfied. When I get the urge I am going to rebuild the front axle with Longfields and other good stuff and I am gonna Aussie it too. Although I am not sure I am going to need 4 wheel drive much at all anymore.
