Default Spartans Lunchbox Locker

Anyone run one? Couldn't really find to much about them besides this article. Was thinking about putting one in my dana 60 front.

after owning a lunchbox locker and having it break within 3 weeks of installing it i don't think i'll ever own one again. mine was setup by a shop so there was no installation error either.

I have a SM465/NP205 combo in the blazer right now. The first stub was from trying to pull someone out in reverse. The second was when i was in 4low and Creeper gear and mashed the gas in a mud hole and BANG!!!

It is similar in design to the Aussie and Loc Rights.

I am running a Loc Right in my D60. Beat it up hard. Even shattered a stub and blew a hub on the 60 and the pins and loc right survived with no problems.

X2 to the similar design. from all that ive read the lunchbox type hold up to a shock load better then a detroit. in situations w/ rocks, 40" tires, and an I-6 w/ a doubler behind it.
