Aussie Locker Installation

Hi,

the next thinmg i will order in the summer will be a locker. I think about a "lunchbox" aussie locker.
how easy is the installation?
can i do it by myself? i never opened a differential before. but i did many other things on cars.
how long should it take if i let the installation do by a professional jeep shop?
do i still need the same fluids with an aussie locker?
after how many miles do i have to change the fluid after installing the locker?

thanks in advance for your answers.

there are different axles. my front is a D30 and my rear a D44, but i think there shouldn´t be a big difference in installing the aussie.
but i will first buy the front locker and perhaps later a rear one because the rear one will not make the on road handling better.

I'm gonna get one to cause my spider gears keep break even though I don't wheel to hard It's pretty easy from what I understand since they just replace the spider gears or stock posi.

they offer different lockers for different differentials (sounds ugly...sorry for my bad english). so i dont´think that a D30 aussi ewould fit in a d35 or d44.

The lockers are axle specific. Nicholas if you can tur a wrench you can put a locker in. I was always neverous about messin with that kinda stuff until I did it its easy, if your mechanically inclined.

ok that sounds like installing a lunchbox locker is much easier than installing a detroit locker. that took nearly 8 hours on a friends TJ. and adjusting everything was very difficult.

do you know a good write-up where i can see to install the aussie?

Lunchbox lockers are pretty easy to install. I've heard nothing but good about the aussie lockers. I prefer OX or ARB, but I am not to keen on automatic lockers.
