Awhile back I posted about ordering front and rear aussie's for my 94 2 door. Well they arrived about a week ago. I was going to wait until this weekend to install them since our shop is 10 miles up the road.

Well I couldn't wait. My cousin came over and we installed the rear locker in my driveway. All the clearances came right out to what the manual said. Did the click test several times. Put it all back together and the result is one bad arse rear end. I played with it a bit up and down the road and in the driveway. I am super impressed with this little unit. I can't wait to install the front this weekend. Thanks for all the advice you guys have given over the last few months about choosing the locker that is right for me. I think I will be very happy with it. I will try to get some video's on youtube in a few weeks to show the fruits of my labor. AGAIN, THANKS GUYS!

Will you be driving the truck on icy--snowy roads over 35mph? Reason I ask, is, a lunchbox locker in front is very interesting on an icy road at speed using 4wd. In fact it is deadly interesting.

thought we covered this with the only lock one hub thing. and if it goes out in the ice and snow it will be to play
