    My buddy is looking to buy a locker, but we want to make sure which one it is first. Is it the SF? 14 bolt pics The FF is 10.5 and the SF is 9.5, right?

    SF. Also looks like there may have been some water in the gear oil.

    That is a sf. For future reference though, pulling the cover is not the best way to tell. Next time, save yourself the trouble and just look at the hub. If the hub has 8 bolts in a circular pattern around it, its a ff, if not, its a sf. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    He needed to change the fluid in it anyway, but thanks for the info for future id. I didn't watch him drain it to see if there was water in it, but it had been raining all day.
    He wants to get a Detroit Locker. Someone at a 4 wheel parts store told him he would also need new bearings etc. I haven't ever heard anything about that. Can't you just stick it in without replacing anything else generally?

    If he goes with a Tractech Loc-Rite(a "drop in" locker), then he just install it without doing the bearings. If he gets a Detorit Locker, then it is best to replace the carrier bearings at the same time.

    *EDIT* With the Detroit, you'll also have to set-up the ring and pinion again...
