|redmanwalking||You guys that installed the Aussie, did you have to replace the thrush washers and the cross pin or did you use the one that was in the diff?|

|Irongrave||I've used both. Aussie was having supply issues last year not sure if its resolved now or not so we ended up with a spartan in my dad't TJ|

I have had no issues with my Spartan in my d 35.
I'd say get which ever is cheaper.

|djwrangler||Can't go wrong with either really. I run an Aussie in my D30 and it was an easy install. Works perfectly.|

|amiller||I had an Aussie in my TJ for a few years. I recently removed it and put it in my YJ (going ARB in TJ) It still looked like new with absolutely zero visible wear when I pulled it. I loved the traction gains from the Aussie, but I didn't much care for winter driving with it in the TJ.|

I have been running an Aussie in my D30 for about 3 years and not a single problem. I love the way it works to allow me to walk up obsticals that I used to need momentum to get over. Go Aussie and you will be happy. Oh, and I am running 33" tires and stock 3.07 gearing.

Aussie or Spartan Locker
I'm looking to put a locker in my D-30. I have decided on either an Aussie or Spartan.
The Aussie does not come with a hardened cross pin and it requires thrust washers.Is it safe to re-use the cross pin and thrush washer that are in there now?
Spartan comes with a hardened cross pin and does not use the thrush washers and is a little more money. Everywhere I have read said that it was a simpler install.
The only thing I don't like is the Spartan appears to be an import product and the Aussie is made here.
Anyone have experience with re-using the cross pin and thrush washers in their Aussie? Am I better off just ignoring the country of origin and getting the Spartan to eliminate all questions?
Looking for feedback and any installation tips!
