whick locker and winch to get?

Which locker should i get for my HP D30? Should i get a Aussie,Lock right,or Spartan? I know they all work the same, but are some better made than others?How about some feedback.And what is the best place to order from?I recently got a chevy caliler so it can be the dd, and the jeep will move to trail rig/summer dd.

Also im looking into getting a winch, im pretty sure im getting a warn M8000, where is the best place to order from.Any feedback/reviews on those?

I hear they are all pretty similar. I've got a lock right and I've been happy with it so far. Remeber if ur doing it urself to double check torque specs and if you have a numerically high ring gear u are in for a special treat when it comes to extra time to install!

My son just had his jeep in for a gear change last week and had the off road shop mechanic put in a Spartan and the guy said it was the best and tightest he had seen. He was going to start recommending them. Now we just need to get some trail time on it to finish the test.

Good mechanical condition, paint flaking on casing. Old, I got It used myself, not really sure when the m8000 was introduced but I don't think it was 2 long ago. Havnt tested it under tension in a while but it works. I need to get a new remote for it though.

I also have a warn winch plate that came with it and the solenoid brace. Would prefer to sell it all together.

I'll post a pic of the damaged areas when I can
