I was going to wait until tuesday. ......Way to excited and installed after 7pm tonight......

Sooo basically the hardest thing for me was getting the carrier pin bolt out. I snapped 2 sockets right off and stripped out the head with my 8mm wrench. Then I turned to heat. I ran a propane torch on the carrier for about 5-8 minutes. Put a 5/16 wrench on it and gave it a whack and I got it off!!! So then I finish and have like 1 liter of 80-90 gear oil...... So I made a parts store run at 9ish PM. Closed. Went to walmart and all they stocked was two flavors of super-tech gear lube... I'm not a fan but it will do fine as gear oil. Went with 80-140. Now waiting for RTV to cure about an hour and it's currently 10:16pm in Wa. School tomorrow at 7.

Alright, I took it for a drive and boy does it clunk. But that's expected.

The one thing I was not expecting was for it to pull to the right. Is this something on my part? or do all lunch box lockers pull left or right a bit? It definitely was not there before.

Yeah, its not like its out of control or anything. Defiantly noticeable though. I am going to play with tire pressures.

The locker worked great playing in some mud today. Its a little funky on the road but I'm assuming it just takes time to get used to the distinctive "lunchbox" style characteristics.

Supra, did you notice anything different with handling after installing you Lock-right? As far as I know they work on the exact same concept and design.

That's exactly what I plan on buying! My only question is, is it the double sheer track-bar that you drill out the factory bracket to 3/4in and use the supplied stud?

Yep, the new bracket just bolts onto your factory bracket with the beefy *** 3/4'' stud. He actually recommends weldinig it together after boltin' it up i think but i just used red loc-tite. The jeep is lookin good glad to see you got a locker
