Lock Right Review
I had it installed a few days ago in my 8.8 28 spline rear axle. I'm very impressed with this locker. I've never owned a vehicle with a locker.
City Driving: I expected it to be noisy and tough to drive around town with. It's practically invisible when driving around town. If I roll the windows down and turn the radio off I can hear it clicking in the rear as I make a tight turn. Other than that I can't hear it. I don't hear any clunking or anything either. I didn't have to change my driving much as I'm a moderate driver already. Just don't hit the gas hard in turns and it won't lock up.
Desert Test: I went out last night on a fairly rough trail. I'm usually in 4 hi and in some steep portions 4 low. The truck in 2wd handled everything that used to require 4 hi. The 4 low inclines still required 4 low due to the steep incline along with loose rocks and dirt. There was a 2.5-3' ledge that I was able to climb up in 2wd. It was the side of a small wash. The dirt was somewhat soft but not very loose and no rocks. First attempt and I made it up and out. Second part of the wash had some rocks and it took two attempts but I made it up. The locker really hooks up well on dirt and I'm amazed at the difference it makes. I knew it would be an improvement over an open diff but not this much.
Overall, the Lock-Right is a great locker for the price ($299 from Tellico 4x4). If you enjoy playing hard in the dirt and don't mind changing your city driving habbits a little this thing is a great addition! I can't give any long term reports because it only has 200 miles on it but if I remember I'll update this thread as the miles stack up.
