This is a continuation of a post I made a few days ago. My rear end went out last week. I have since determined that it is the locker (stock-Gov-lock, or so I am told) that broke. At this moment, I am considering 1 of 2 options. Either put a new locker in it, or put an open carrier in it. I need to get this thing up and running NOW. I am going to put new gears in the front and rear this spring. Will the locker I buy now work with the gears I buy later? currently I am running 3.08's, but will switch to 4.11's in the spring. What do y'all think, and how the H@LL do you install a carrier/locker? The spider gears and ring & pinion are in good/excellent condition. All I plan on doing is installing the locker or carrier. God has a hard on for Marines, because we keep Heaven chock full of fresh souls!
