thanks for the offer, im done. no locker yet. debating on a selectable or a truetrack like the one I have in the front. oh and not to mention that for a selectable I will need about 700 more than the true tract too. still thinking....... I have a feeling that one of this days I will find a good deal on craigslist.

Ordered the hinge kit from eBay, 50 square tube at
Western Steel Inc
1 (719) 392-6821
3350 Drennan Industrial Loop N, Colorado Springs, CO 80910
The piece that holds the tire I made it out of a stock jk rim by cuting the center piece out and welding it to a piece of 2x2

For the latch I used a lockable hitch pin.
