The aussie locker for the 8.25 has already been proven to have issues and is being redesigned.

Can someone explain to me why the Aussie is so worshipped? Not being sarcastic, just curious. I have read people's comments about Aussie lockers & it almost seems like the Holy Grail. Why?

A bit different design is why I prefer them, but we can argue back and fourth all day about which is better. Just preference for me.

I spoke with an aussie rep last year regarding the 8.25 locker. We got into a bit of details about the history of the aussie and he said he has yet to see anyone break the aussie locker, but has seen worn down teeth due to improper install. They are very beefy lockers that take abuse well. Can't complain about the cost either.

When i need 4wd on the pavement (snow), it simply sucks. I plowed right off the road last year when making a turn at a light. It drives a bit scary, very different from how my locked f/r TJ did.

The rear locker is more controllable, lessens my peeling out, and helps me better off road IMO.

I'll probably post it in the for sale forum in a couple days.

Well in the snow I can see how it would be quite noticeable.

I was going with noslip lockright in the rear c8.25 but after reading it seems a selectable locker is the best all around solution. Especially with a NP242, so I'll just wait and get a pair of ARB air lockers and then I'll have full control over my traction, or lack there of.

I'm thinking of going with the HP30 30 spline axles and 30 splin ARB locker, and just a plain 29 spline arb locker for the c8.25. Should get me over the speed bumps at the mall just fine.
