Thread: lockers for D30?

  1. #1

    Default lockers for D30?

    Just trying to get some opinions before I buy.

    I'm looking at the following ::;

    Aussie $249.00 (on back order)

    detroit e-z locker $259.00

    Power Trax Lock-Right $227.00

    I'v heard good about the lock-right and the aussie but not much on the e-z locker. Which would be best? This will be going in my TJ that is a Daily Driver.

    Thanks Jason

    Well i havent had any experience with the lockright and e-z locker but ive had a aussie in my d30 for a couple of months now and I like it alot. It was extreamly easy to install, its quiet on road, the only time I hear it click is when im doing a slow, tight u-turn. Offroad, it works just as it should, no more "2-wheel" drive when im stuck in the mud, and now I can climb stuff a hell of alot easier and I dont have to try to bounce my tires over a rock like some of my wheeling buddies that are unlocked upfront

    From what I've heard, I doubt you would be able to tell the difference between the Aussie and the Lock-Right. I've heard good things about both.

    Lock right and aussie are the same thing, the lock right is cheaper and not on back order so I'd order that one. an e-z locker is the same thing as well, but its the only lunch box style locker I've seen break so personally I wouldn't run that one.

    I think the e-z locker has clutches that can wear out and it great on road but a little weak sometimes off road. I have the Lockeright locker in my D30 and love it I am very impressed with how it works off road! :pablo: :pablo:

    An ez locker does not have clutches that can wear out. But all the same I would stay away from them. They have had a history of releasing bad batches of them and not doing anything about it. I'd vote lockright or aussie.

    lockright here, many years, no problem. Everything I hear is the aussie and lockright are basically the same. Get the cheapest or the one that is avaliable, you cannot go wrong.

    lockright unless you can get an aussie, theyre quieter, depends on how bad you want it!

    well according to northridge 4x4, the aussies should be in in 2 weeks so i guess i can wait since that seems to be the best choice. Even david at northridge recommended the aussie over the lockright even though the lock right was more $

    Same as everyone else has said. Go with either a lockright or aussie. I've had my lockright so far with 33's, 35's, and 37's. Has treated me right and no problems in over 3 years. I have friends who have aussies and they do fine as well.

    i've held a lock right in one hand and an aussie in the other and couldn't tell the difference. Half the people I wheel with run lock rights and the other half aussies and I couldn't tell any difference between the two, get whats cheaper.

    I have a lock rite in my TJ, Love it. No problems. I helped Tupton install his aussie the other night, the only major difference I could tell was the aussie has a single spring, and the lockrite has a small spring inside of a larger spring. I believe both are great lockers. Get whatever you can get the best deal on, they are essentually the same.
