    Most people don't like them in the 10 and 12 bolt axles because they explode. The one in the 14 bolt is much stronger and you can probably get it a lot cheaper than a used detroit. They don't hold quite as well as a detoit but if you drive on the street at all that can be a good thing. If you want detroit like locking power you can always replace the guts of the gov-lock case with a trak-loc (??) locker. I believe that's the one that fits inside the gov-lock carrier.

    I don't have one, but he does (Topdown)... they work by sensing when one wheel is spinning faster than the other and then a clutch releases and locks the axles together. It's kind of like an open diff until it activates (it will jerk the truck a bit) and then it's basicly a spool.

    I bought it for $50.00 from a friend to put in my 14FF that I sold to Clubba... so if I get $20.00 plus shipping out of it I will be happy... mostly I just need/want to get it off my garage floor so I can get my blazer inside. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    So at the moment the ball is in Crazy427's court...
