    Have you guys seen this?

    I just read about it in the newest 4wheel and off road mag. They tested this vaccuum locker on a first gen blazer. It's operated by a shifting fork inside the cover!?
    It's like $790 for a Dana60 application and they make these lockers to be activated by vaccuum, air, or electric selenoid.

    <font color="green"> Hey that's the locker with the toaster oven on the cover that I posted a couple months ago. The guy that makes them in Germany posted to the thread in which I talked about it. He said that it was coming to the states but I didn't think it was going to happen so soon. I'd hold off on getting it fora bit, he said that they were trying to fit the toaster oven inside the diff in future models. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif</font color>

    That locker looks pretty cool, the price doesn't. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I guess it fits in the same category as the ARB and OX. My only concern is the "toaster oven" as Shaggy put it. It would suck to bash that thing apart on the rocks or in mud.

    But, it always helps to have more options on the market, maybe it will help drive the costs down with a little competition. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
