You know why Quaife doesn't move any here in the states?? We're smart enough not to spend $1700 on a LS when that's about half the price of doing a solid axle.

Damn Shane, you would be willing to spend $800 to put a L/S in your front? I think i wouldnt pay any more than about $250.

No doubt they're pricey, and the current exchange rate makes them ridiculous.

I'm hoping it'd be in the sub 500 range. but I know that's not really all too realistic. We'll see how I like the locker in the back this year. Barely wheeled it last year. Then I'll make a decision. I don't want a locker up front and I sure don't plan on torching the front end off for many many years even if I do do it.

Ok. Just got off the phone with Richmond Gear to double check on the Lock-Right and No-Slip.

Lock-Right (2311S2) - Still in production!

No-Slip (92-0435-2702) - Discontinued.

I'll make the change in the differential guide thread.

Ok, just heard back from Aussie about the Aussie Locker.

They are discontinuing their unit for the Ranger, and they have 2-3 in stock, but you're going to have to call them. They are not available for web order (website technical issues with low inventory numbers). They also have some in reserve for warranty replacements that they won't sell.

The ones that are still left are from when they made their first and only production run of 100 units 4 years ago. I don't blame them for not making any more.

The only way I see myself buying a torsen L/S is if it is in the 300 or less range which is doubtful

I run a no-slip up front. I don't feel anything when I drive on the street. Off road, the thing works great, but in deep clay mud it has unlocked before. I run 35's on 15x10 wheels and have never had a problem w/ CV's.
