    Anyone hear about these? I searched but very little came up. They list a 14bolt FF on thier app guide, I emailed them for a price but am still waiting for a reply.
    Anyone have experience with them?
    Heres thier site https://offroadlockers.com/index.html

    I hear they are pretty sweet. My buddy ordered his a while back (atleast a month, maybe 6 weeks), and they just now sent it a couple days ago /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Do a search here and at Pirate.

    I was going to order a pair for my 10 bolts but they weren't starting production until this month so I ordered a pair of LockRights from National Drivetrain.

    lots of info on them over on pirate... IMO they are a good deal. easy to install and cheap ($200 intro price). They are basically a slightly improved version of the lockright. Not as good as a full detroit, but then it costs a lot less than a detroit too.

    i was looking into those when i forst got my 3/4 ton's and e-mailed the guy at aussie about the 14FF and he said they do not make them for that axle yet, only for Heeps now, i was kinda bummed cuz they look pretty sweet for the price, i never did ask why they showed the 14FF on the application chart though.. I'm interested on what the guy at aussie says.. keep us posted. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    toy drivetrains are actually pretty cool... im definitely gonna use em to build a buggy someday. amazing how durable these parts are on lighter rigs, considering the weight of em.

    question to anyone who knows more than me... :
    is the aussie locker the same thing as the powertrax no-slip? they look identical. i read two large threads on pirate about the aussie and am still confused. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif
