I'm in the market for a lunchbox locker, right now I'm considering an Aussie, or a Powertrax Lockright. I'm going to toss it in my 30 (front). I'm curious as to everyones opinion on the best lunchbox locker, first hand experience is preferred. Any other brands I should be considering? I'm really leaning towards the Aussie but they are on backorder for an undisclosed amount of time. Thanks in advance for any guidence that will be provided.
The Aussie is fine but I'd go with the American made Lockrite. The Lockrite has a sterling reputation for reliability and it will be just as "transparent" in 2wd as the Aussie and work identically offroad when in 4wd as well.
I'm actually running a Powertrax (manufacturer of the Lockrite) No-Slip which is like the Lockrite but is designed to be a bit smoother... which in the front axle makes no difference, its additional smoothness is really only noticeable when installed in the rear axle.

I ran a LR for 4 years with about 50,000 miles on it before it started wearing out. I got a Quick Lock to replace it, after a year or so it performed worse that the worn out LR. If you can't swallow the price of a new LR, try to find one second-hand. my front one was second-hand, it was given to me, it worked fine but was by no ,means "transparent". Only during a slow speed/tight turn was it apparent.
