    Looking for peoples opinions. I just picked up a 12 bolt rear last friday,and the spider gears are a bit chewed up. I want to install a locker anyway. So what should I save up for? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    If its lighter duty, I think a lock rite would be a good choice. You can stick it in yourself.

    I also put Moser shafts in it at the same time as the Detroit.

    It would be for light duty wheelin.. Trails,and a little bit of mud. I plan on running 35's also. The stock shaft's look good,so I am not planning on changing them. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Eric-
    I put a detroit in my 12 bolt right after i bought it...
    It was like $550 or so plus the $100 bearing and install kit...
    I wouldn't even buy a locker man, I'd save the $550+ dollars and buy a 14bolt and a $300 detroit for that. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    Just weld it. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Then the leftover money can go towards your D60 or 16.5" rims and tires huh!

    Eric - Go with the Detroit. Youre in luck - I have one for sale. This is in new shape, checked out by Inland Truck Parts in Kansas City, MO. This is the 3.73-4.56 carrier style and I am asking $375 plus shipping. PM me if interested.
