hey guys,, im eventually gonna regear and go with some lockers both front and rear.. i saw the aussie's were priced good. i dont do much off roading. mainly 2 or 3 diamond trails. nothing too hardcore. and i to a touch of mudding. so i was curious if anyone here would slap me in the head if i got aussies up front and rear. I dont want to make a mistake and end up paying more for a selectable locker later.

of course before i get to that point i need to figure out my 6mpg problem first. lol

Isn't an aussie locker a selectable locker? I'm thinking of the ox locker, which is cable actuated. Are you talking about something else? I've had excellent experiences with a detroit in the rear of both pickups and the bronco.

aussie are luchbox lockers that fit in an open carrier.

read the "All About Lockers" sticky from the Tech Write-ups & installs Forum.

there is some Aussie discussion there.

i am thinkin of an Aussie for my 8.8 to cut down expense until i go 8 lug. i imagine i'll be able to sell it easily.

i ran the aussie up front on the ttb, it was pretty damn reliable and worked as advertised. only issue i ever had was snapping a stub shaft on a cold january day when i caught some air and had the hammer down when it landed...axle shaft didn't like that. for the money, i think the aussie is a great product.

That probably would have taken out a Detroit. I myself have an Aussie in the front solid 44. I have no complaints so far except it seemed a little louder than other lunchbox lockers I have ran, but that could have been the bad u-joint. :toothless
