    I know that 87GMCJimmy runs one in his D44 front axle. I have run a couple trails with him and it seams to work just fine. He would know more though.

    I personally run a Lockright in my 10 bolt front and it works well for me, and the price is usually pretty good.

    They are almost identicle to a lockright or EZ-locker. There is also 4WPW quick loc which is another cheap locker. I don't know anybody that has them but PBB has a full write up on them in their 'yota forum.

    I can't say anything about the Aussie locker , they don't make one for my rear ( they answered my e-mail saying soon ) . I can say something about these lockers in general though ( lunchbox lockers ) as I have a Detroit EZ / GG Quic Loc . In a front application they are really good , in a rear application you need a good carrier and new thrust washers , and then you need to watch your tire pressure , you need to keep them close on the street , on the trail it doesn't matter . I have installed locker in a d44 for k5redneck , you need to remove the ring gear in some d44's because the ring gear keeps the pin from coming out :xmas:
