Superior was the original inventor of the super kits but recently went out of businesses. Make sure to check if the retailer actually has the item you want from superior in stock before ordering. A couple other companies make a super 35 kit.
They went out of business? Are you sure?

Check out this thread, it gives a ton of great information about the different types of locker and how they all work. Why do I Need a Locker?

We carry all the major brands of Lockers such as ARB, OX and Detroit. I do however recommend getting the locker installed by a professional because differentials require specific tools and precision to install.

Please feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions. I'll be more than happy to help.

Relocatedduckman It depends on your axles. Going with the ARB lockers so I have the option to engage them or not.. It just depends on which ones you NEED. You can go cheap and get anti slip's or full engaginging. Some are pull and play, some are more difficult. Take it to an offroad shop and talk to them.. They are great at providing info and pricing!

sgtkersh No, it just replaced the internal gear carrier at the high end or augments it at the low end. The low end is a lunch box locker that goes in the existing carrier like an Aussie locker that end about $250. Higher end are automatic lockers that replace the carrier like an Eaton/Detroit Locker that runs $500ish. High end is an electronic or air selectable locker that can ruin $1000. Plus install on all those.

Lockers

I'd like to lock my axles so I could do some more crawling but I have almost zero knowledge about lockers. So do I need to replace the whole axles? Where? How? Price? Any help will be appreciated!!
