Meaning the actual physical location where the carrier can bolt to the ring gear must be moved. So they must change the size of the carrier.

Well i should've mentioned thats if you planned on staying open with it, if you're gonna do a full case locker then it doesn't matter.. personally i'm going to be going with detroit lockers from now on..

Yeppers, exactly, I have a Detroit locker in the rear axle on mine now, awesome performance. That's what I plan to go with, either that or ARB air lockers on the new axles

The thing that drives me away from ARB (I have one in my jeep) is the fact that there are multiple points of failure in the system, and i'd rather never have to worry about if my locker is going to engage. Detroit is the set it and forget it system.. ARB is the set it and it will probably do you well, but the possibility exists where it wont lock.

Point made indeed, after the Detroit Locker I have now, that's probably what I will end up going with

I'm still undecided about lockers. I'm looking for affordable and reliable and not sure if I were to lock 1 axle which it should be. Opinions or recommendations?

Detroit Lockers here, I'm actually curious about OX lockers though, I would like to run across someone who has had one for a while

Lock the rear first.. and depends on what you want, selectable, then ARB, automatic then Detroit.. just my opinion.. the detroit (called detroit soflock) is actually a very streetable auto locker..

The reason i say the rear first, most times you'll need to be locked you'll be driving UP something right? this is when the weight has mainly transferred to the rear axle.. when you're going down hill, when the weight has transferred to the front axle you usually dont need to be locked

Chris, definitely rear first, but again, up to you on selectable vs auto..

but i'd suggest auto, cheaper, potentially more reliable..

with ARB you not only need to buy the locker & install it etc.. but you also need an air source, which you should have anyway, but you can put it off longer, the ARB will force you to to get OBA sooner. Reliability is the biggest thing though, id rather know i will be locked for sure than hope i will be locked..

Just to back this up, my Detroit has locked right up every time there was a need for it
