Which 4.56 gears and locker? Best Gears

I am going to need some 4.56 gears and locker (not fully locked, ratchet type) this summer when I throw 35"s on and am wondering what some good gears lockers are that aren't mad expensive, I don't want some cheapo ones that arent strong, or mustang racing ones and such. I'm not familiar with the gear brands......... Looking for some suggestions I guess.

Thanks

Searched, and wasn't going well at all....

I'm using Yukon gears and an Auburn Ected electric locker in my 31 spline, 8.8" rear.

I've been trying to destroy the combination but so far I've been unsuccessful...

Oh yeah, whats it take to put a locker in that I can turn on or off from the cab?

Richmond gears sound like a good idea with that warranty too.....

Hardest thing is installing the locker, lol. Any carrier replacement is detailed.

Wiring is easy: a pair of wires to the cab, a fuse and a switch. You have to drill and tap a hole in the diff for the sealed fitting the wire goes through -- but that's not that bad.
