I am considering putting in a Powertrax or Aussie lunchbox locker in my front axle. I want to re-gear to 4.56 but don't have the ability to do it myself. Can I re-gear while installing a lunchbox locker without the hassles of shimming, etc, and pay to have the rear re-geared?

While you can install a lunchbox style locker without redoing your gear setup, you cannot switch the gears out without getting the preload and backlash of the gears nearly perfect.

You could install the locker now by yourself as long as it is not a whole carrier swap and then pay someone to do the gears later or you could just have someone do the whole thing.
