Which Posi-Lok?

I have been following the recent threads on 4X4 issues. I recently lost the 4WD on my 88 yj and will look over the vaccum system when I can get time. I can easily see my self changing to a posi-lok.

Any comments on which supplier's posi-lok to use would be appreciated?

I would say its up to you. I ordered my posi lock from 4wd.com and was very
happy with the easy instalation. And it works great.

There is a post called, Home made Posi Lock write up, that shows how to modify what you have. Do a search to find it.
This site has the cheapest manufactured setup I could find. But I could not find a fork on there.

Hope that helps.

Check with NAVY CHIEF. He did this with a piece of garden hose, and he seems happy to share his success. In the other thread about loss of 4x4, it was posited that changing the vacuum D30 to a locked hub setup creates significant bearing wear. I asked in there, given the popularity of this mod as the vacuum system regularly fails after a time, is there any veracity to the wear and tear claim?
