Has anyone used or is using a lock right for a Dana 35. I blew out my spider gears today. Just looking for a little wisdom. Thanks.

Re: lock right

I was at a light i let the clutch out and pop, Would not move. I was wondering how well the lock rights hold up. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Re: lock right

A good rule of thumb on a lockright is 33's and avery mild v8. It really depends on your wheeling style too. I've
run for almost a year without a problem at all.

Re: lock right

Same dilemna here. I just discovered that my factory TracLoc carrier is cracked so now I am leaning towards LockRight b/c it is only slightly more $ than a new TracLoc.

Will the LockRight hold up in a D35 running 33's? Still running the stock 4.0L in a '94 YJ.

Any advice or experiences are appreciated. Thanks!

Re: lock right

Saw that, hoping for other experiences / advice as well. Can never have too much info to base a decision on.

Re: lock right

I ran a Lock-Right in my YJ w/35C rear. I had no problems, though I >did< do a lot of talking with PowerTrax before buying one. They said the only problem they saw was with a guy running a V8.

A Lock-Right won't fix a broken carrier; that's the weak link. You might consider a No-Slip instead.

Also, my '95 YJ came with an ABS housing (no ABS installed). This is different than a standard axel housing, so you need to confirm your numbers when ordering. I was in the process of installing mine before I found out the bad news.

Good luck!

Re: lock right

Thanks Hewgag.

I need a new carrier either way. I unfortunately don't have the budget for any of this so spending an additional couple hundred for a No-slip isn't really feasible. I wish it was.

Re: lock right

Your profile doesn't say what engine / tire size you have.

I've got a 95yj with 2.5L and 31" tires. Been running Powertrax no-slip (D35c) for about 6 months. It's great and has been no problems in the heavy rocks I off road in. Good manners on road too.

The same company make the Lock-Right so I would hope the same quality that's in the no-slip is in the other.

BUT from what most people say, if you have taller than 31" tires and/or a strong V8 engine you are asking for trouble. If you have this setup, it's best to spend the cash on a Detroit or ARB.

After buying a new carrier and the locker, you aren't that far away from a Detroit.
