    Hey is there another locker availible for the 1/2 ton IFS diff than an ARB? My buddy just put 4:56's and a rear Detroit in his 95. He left the front open, because he couldn't afford an ARB, and was told that was the only option. Is there a Detroit or Lock Rite or even an LSD?

    Thanks

    Umm, not even ARB makes a locker for the 1/2 ton IFS front, only the 9.25" 8 lug IFS. As far as I know no one makes any kind of locker for the 6 lug setup...

    Umm, no, 1 ton front is 8 lug 9.25". 14SF was not available in 1 tons, just 3/4 ton LD's and 1/2 ton HD's. So no, it's a 3/4 ton axle, 1 ton axle is the FF. SF was available in 6 and 8 lug however.
