    What happened to these guys? I see that 4 wheel parts is still selling the ox-lockers but the ox trax web site is gone, and has been for a while. Does anyone have any contact info or any info about what happened to them? Last I knew they were supposed to be coming out with a locker for the Dana 60 and the 14 bolt. But all I can find their lockers listed for are the Jeep axles.

    I have a lincoln locker in my 14 bolt at the moment and I'm tired of it eating up my tires. I've been holding out for a selectable locker for the 10.5" and ox-trax was the only promising manufacturer.

    I heard they went out of business......yes, their website is offline, and 4WPW is probably just blowing out remaining stock of their lockers.

    Sad to hear, it looked like a decent setup for a D60. I'd never heard the rumor that they'd offer a 14BFF version though....

    I'd like to see ANY selectable offering for the 14BFF.....eLocker, ElecTrac.....something. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Not quite. 4WheelPartsWhores bought either all or a controlling part of OX and is now their exclusive distributor.

    I like the idea of Ox Trax, but they are very costly!

    FWIW
    Tibus offroad claims that they will release there selectable locker for the 14BFF at the SEMA show this year. I have been talking to them off and on for a lot of months. It sounds like it is a real product bu that there have been manufacturing issues.
