Re: Detroit e-z locker
I've had both. There are some differences. I went through 3 EZ lockers in my Wrangler (got all my money back). The last one broke the first day of the Easter Jeep Safari. I bought a NIB Lock Right from a guy on the trail and never had problems again (sold the jeep, but still is working fine for new owner).
The weaker link in the EZ locker is the little spring with the spring cap. Lock Right uses a spring inside a spring and seems to have no problems. Also, my Lock Right had one additional part that was like a washer. The reason I started with an EZ locker is that if it breaks they'll upgrade you to a detroit for the difference. In the end it didn't matter. Most people don't have a problem with 'em. You'll love the added traction. My guess is if it breaks you could upgrade to a detroit even though you weren't the original owner.
