    One of our club members is running one.He said he loved it.
    Its been in for about 6 months or so.He has'nt had any trouble that I know of.If he did'nt like about it he's the type that would never stop bitching about it so it must be pretty good.

    Are they still in business? Their website, <a target="_blank" href=http://www.oxlocker.com>www.oxlocker.com</a> appears to be gone. [​IMG]

    yes, still in business. They are coming out with the D60 version shortly (it's already built). BUT, they told me the cost is like $1500 or so. I have it in writing in my email recently...have to look for it. With that said, I bought an Arb locker for the front instead.

    Cool! The oxlocker link used to work. That's what had me wondering! Glad to see that they're still around. I think they'll be good competition for the folks at ARB. (It is coincidence that since the Ox Locker has come out, ARB has finally done some major upgrades to minimize o-ring problems?) [​IMG]

    Ok, here is the email I recieved from them. Date: Nov. 9 2001

    Hi Chuck,
    News travels fast. The D60 is a prototype only right now so we do not
    have
    any substantive figures to say it is stronger than the ARB. I would not
    be
    going too far out on a limb to say that it should be substantially
    stronger
    than anything available for the D60. The Cover does not stick out any
    further than the stock cover so you are ok there. I expect that we will
    see
    the OX in limited numbers initially for the D60. These will be
    expensive
    beautiful hand built units that will be serial numbered and sold to a
    select
    few. Price will be around $1500.00.
