Lockers: Most bang for the my buck

First let me say hello to everyone, "hello everyone", I'm new to this board so I apologize if this questions has come up before.

I'm thinking about getting a set of Lock-Rite Lockers for my 95 YJ. Has anyone had any problems with them? If so, what were they?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Lockers: Most bang for the my buck

I've been running one in the front for a couple years and am satisfied. And I don't think it is hard to turn at all on the trail. That is a commonly mentioned as a drawback with mechanical lockers, but I haven't noticed much of a difference.

Re: Lockers: Most bang for the my buck

hands down.. lockrite are the best bang for the buck.. they are only about $250 new and you can usually sell them for about $150 used.....what a deal.

Re: Lockers: Most bang for the my buck

on second thought.... best for the buck is a nice welded diff........but thats a bit extreme for most folks...

Re: Lockers: Most bang for the my buck

If you've got manual locking front hubs is there any reason not to weld the front diff? Seems like a welded front and a lockrite out back would be a great bang for the buck set up.

Re: Lockers: Most bang for the my buck

The consensus seems to be "do not weld the front".

Yep, the front on a YJ is always turning, on a CJ they're not when the hubs are unlocked.
