    Rear Locker Opinions

    I am doing an wheel to wheel overhaul of spare 4wd rear drive assembly. I am considering a locker for the rear. Any opinions on which brand is preferred with these 7.5" differentials? I have plans to add OBA before installing it on my current rig, a tech will handle the differential set up. Any input or advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

    Mine has a Aussie locker in the rear. Personally I would not recommend having a locker in these vans unless it lives in the dirt/mud. At low speeds you have to coast turns and feather the clutch. Otherwise it will tear apart the suspension bushings and transfer case mounts. I recently swapped out my front axle that was locked (Aussie as well).The frontends on these vans canít handle the extra traction. Just my honest opinion.
