<font face="Comic Sans MS">I'd have to say Detroit. Full carrier replace, unfortuneately needs the R&P setup again, but the brute strength of this thing is worth it, in my opinion. More expensive than the other alternatives like the lockright or others. If I had the cash this is what I would have gotten, but I couldn't afford that option, so i just replaced the rear in mine (my carrier sort of grenaded possibly as a result of the pinion nut getting loose (good idea to check this occasionally by the way)) with one from a parts yard. It has the Gov-lock in it, which isn't horrible but if you lift a tire I believe it'll act more like a limited slip than a locker. Just my thoughts on the subject... </font>

Re: locker for an s10

Unless you're running a V-8 with larger than 33's, the Lock-Right does fine. If you do plan on a V-8 and 33s or larger, you'd better get a larger axle and ditch the IFS! Detroits are great, but kind of overkill for a 7.5" 10 bolt! Don't get me wrong the rear ends in S-10s will take quite a bit of abuse, but usually the axles will break first, then fall out along with your wheel&tire thanks to c-clips. I have a Detroit in my 85 S-10 4x4 with the 14 bolt Full floater rear end. Its a great addition to a HD axle that will see all Off-Road use. Detroit also makes a version of the Lock-right(I think they call it a c-locker) thats sometimes cheaper than the Powertrax unit. Check it out.
