It is probably the best lunch box locker out there.

What axle are you planning on putting it into?

I have an Aussie Locker in my D30 and it has gotten me thru a whole lot more ugly stuff that I would not have even tried with open diffs. I don't even notice it until I engage my front axle (Posi-Lok). In addition...it was really easy to self-install.

I've been running one for a couple of years, since they first came out. It still works with no problems.

Best thing I have done to my Jeep. Rear is still trashlock. I went places in one attempt and a dual locked TJ had to attempt more than once, and a Cherokee w/ unlimited slip and a TJ w/ open/open could not even get close.

It is "almost" unstoppable now, and the only thing you will notice is a little clicking when turning in 2WD. I kinda like the sound, makes me remember it is there in case I require it.

I've got one in my 8.8 and I like it. I can here it click and clack occasionally and every once in a while I get a really good pop but now that I know the sounds, it's no big deal and it works well offroad!

I just installed one about three weeks ago in my dana 35 in my YJ. It was $249.00 shipped to my door, and probably the best money I've ever spent on my jeep. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to put in and the only time I notice it on the road is when I turn very slowly it clicks. Off road it works amazing!!

If you're running it in a D35, you should be fine as long as you stay on 31" tires or less. I have heard many good things about Aussie.

Mine was on 38.5s. Tire size wont affect the locker. It is a tough unit.

I was referring to the axle, not the locker. The D35 won't hold up to large tires locked without snapping axle shafts......so unless you like replacing them ditch the D35 for something better or stay on 31" or less tires.

Any of you guys locked in the front DD on the freeway? I work a day or two a week (sometimes more) down in Farmington Hills and some days I can't avoid the freeway if I am short on time.

I have driven mine locked front and rear, both the XJ and the YJ, on the freeway with no problems.

I DD my TJ with a front locker and rear spool on 35x14.00 Boggers 85MpH+ on the freeway.

The locker doesn't affect your steering at all while in 2wd.
