Re: Detroit ez locker any good

I'd shop around on the ez locker, you can get a full case detroit for that much!! The last ez locker I bought only cost a little over 200...They are pretty good units though..I've seen the pins break on a few, so keep with the recomended tire size or be prepared to fix it!!

Like Leader said about those pins.
I've got a buddy who runs a Sammy, EZ's are the only locker currently available. He sheered those pins on the first day out wheeling it after we installed them lockers.
Talked to some of the Yota guys that run them. Seems to be a common problem. Easy fix but a real pita to have them fail on the trail.
Just food for thought! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Detroit ez locker any good

I have a few friends that run them of all kinds! One guy has a lot of power and a heavy foot he has some cooked 2 of them. The other guys have had no trouble. I had one in my old 8 but never hamered the rocks so dont know if it would have held. SCRAM

The moment you are born you start to die so buy A Jeep and play hard!!!!!

Re: Detroit ez locker any good

I run the EZ locker in my Dana 44, I have not had a
problem, and I've hammered it hard at times. It does take a little getting used to going around corners when it's slick.
I think the wife paid $239.00 for it, ya the wife got me a X-mass gift, can you beleive that?

LEADER: which pins are you talking about, the cross pin or the little alignment pins???

Keep Jeep-n
