    What is a Detroit or Detroit Locker??
    I know its a dumb question, but I've heard so much about it and its great feeds, but what is it for and whats its due purpose?
    I have a friend in the junkyard that is selling a GMC Sierra that has Detroit Lockers and he puzzled me when he mentioned it, I didn't want to be a dumba$$ and asked him what the hell is that suppose to be, so I'm asking you guys out there. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    You may want to go back and ask your friend to make you a deal on that truck, unless you don't like wheelin very much.

    Yeah, I like wheelin alright, but here on this pebble of an island we got mostly mud and the rocks are usually straight up, I don't know if a K/5 can go up at that angle, but will check on that GMC, if he really wants to sell, but right now, I already have 3 K5s and two Preludes to work on and so far one K5 is about to go after I strip the hell out of it.
    Thats the 1976, its got a good cab but a shi^^y frame.

    most people that claim their truck has detroit lockers are full of it.
    verify before you buy
