Diff. Lockers in central fl

Hello, I'm new to this forum but not new to JK's. This is my second one but it's not a Rubi like the first. I want to get lockers in the front and rear diffs. but dont know how to do it myself. So my question is to anyone who knows of a reliable garage in central FL that can do the job for me. I've considered 4Wheelparts on Colonial but have been told that the work can be hit or miss as to a good job being done.
BTW, I'm thinking ELocker for the Fr. and Detroit for the rear.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
Thankyou fellow Jeep owners

Well, I have the factory LSD in rear so I went with the Eaton E-Locker up front and I am very pleased with mine. They have worked perfectly for me on the trail. I had planned on replacing the rear LSD later but after seeing how well this combo works, for now I have no plans to change it. Do not get the ECTED Auburn elocker, Get the Eaton, much better locker.

ARB makes very nice selectable lockers. I'm happy with mine, anyway. As far as shops go, you'll have to look around. I used 4 wheel parts in Nashville, TN for my front axle, and it went okay. That shop has had some hit or miss service too.

I have a Detroit tru trac in front a Detroit locker in rear. If you do a lot of street driving, the rear locker can get kinda squirly sometimes. Try to either coast through turns, or apply steady pressure to the accelerator in the turns. If you stomp on the gas half way through the turn after coasting, the locker may grab and chirp your tires and youll hear the locker pop after straightening out, which will give the jeep a little twist. Not trying to discourage, just be prepared for a less refined street ride
