I have over 40k miles on the lockright in my YJ that has been in there for 3 years now. I also have a pair of lockers in my CJ that have been in since August of 2000. Neither have had any problems. The CJ does have some wandering on the street but the YJ's locker is very rarely noticeable. I suspect the CJ's problem is the frame flexes too much. Just the engine idling rough makes the frame rails move up and down and side to side. I need to built another crossmember for under the engine.
