    Thinking about getting cheap but reliable locker for my 14 bolt FF, would a Lock Right locker by powertrax be a good choice??

    Any of yas running one?

    detroit. They are only like $3xx.xx for the ff14b. If you're really a cheap bastage, just weld the spiders.

    Yeah, go with the detroit. The powertrax is a good locker. Its a stronger version of the lockright. I have had mine in there for years and it has survived some good abuse including two sets of gernaded gears.

    The powertraxx just replaces the spiders. Doesn't a detroit locker require resetup of the gears for install? I have been debating this myself but I want to be able to do the insall myself. I have seen the powertraxx install on trucks and hot rod tv and it looks pretty easy. Not sure how a detroit installs.

    on a 14FF a Detroit just replaces the guts of an open (4 pinion) carrier. Pretty much the same thing a LockRight does.

    I'd buy a Detroit for a 14FF befoer I bought a LockRight. Or just weld it.
