    i have 12 bolt rearw/ 3.07 gears. I am regearing to 4.10 and going to put in a locker...problem is up in Vancouver, Canada best price i can get on the locker is 950CDN$. this seems ridiculous to me. Is there another option such changing to a another differential ie 14 bolt that willl be cheaper. I know lockers for 14 bolt are considerably less expensive......problem with that option is i run 33 w/ 4 inch lift, is a 14ff overkill?????? My truck is 75 blazer 350/350/203 part time conversion. I need some input from you guys thanks

    ps. sorry for the long ass post just wanted to be clear

    I'm kinda new to the hardcore 4x4 game, but from all the questions I've asked and research I've done I think you will be ok with the 12b. The 14b will eat up a lot of clearence to run only 33's in my opinion. I'd try and find one on the list here for sale or maybe make a trip over the border and pick up a new fancy papper weight suvineer :)

    Hey,
    Try looking at http://www.nsor.com and 4offrd, http://www.bc4x4.com if you haven't done so already. The 950$ was a detroit right?

    Rene,(tRustyK5) will probably have better answers. He is in surrey and is online about 4 hours a day![​IMG]

    yes 950$ is a detroit. Thanks for the reply i kinda thought a 14 bolt might be a little much. Is it worth it to go down inot washington and bring one back even with the weak CDN$$.
    What do you guys in washington pay for a detroit 12 bolt locker??????????????????
