Nice well I think I will be good then. I have 4x4 now but don't get stuck very often. Hopefully this will keep me out of too much trouble like I got into last time with 10 inches of water in my cab.

Yeah. It looks very similar to the No-Slip Powertrax locker (and probably the LockRight Powertrax as well but can't say from experience). I've heard that they are just fine on the street so I think you will be good to go.

lockers dont keep you from getting stuck... they just get you stuck in deeper thicker nastier places

Yeah I was thinking this when I wrote it but didn't want to Jinx myself quite yet. But too late for that.

I was picturing my truck up to the doors in mud.

correct, and it doesnt keep the water out either . but it does help to not get stuck, but it does not prevent it.

Alright I hope to keep this all in this thread so I hope someone will see this.

I have a problem getting out my center pin. It has not been ground properly so I can't get it out. Is it going to be possible to get it out with out removing the ring gear?

If not. How do I remove the ring gear?

I am thinking this is not possible but could I cut it with a cut off disc on my grinder? I am going to be getting another explorer axle so I can use the brakes from it along with giving my self 2 spare axle shafts.
