Thoughts? Opinions? They seem to be half the price of the Detroit lockers.

if you're going to primarily by driving on the street, then they are the way to go.
Detroits are nice, but with a short wheelbase on the street can cause some driveability issues, especially when the roads are slick...

I've seen a couple lunchbox lockers fail recently. A friend just rounded the teeth off of his Aussie in his YJ w/ 8.8 and 35's. When these lunchbox lockers go, you are stuck. All they do is ratchet when you give it any gas. That being said, I really didn't have any problems with my lock-rite on 32's with the 35. They seem to be OK for light wheeling. Any abuse and they don't seem to last real long.

Sounds like your buddy may have had a bad unit, as far as the hardening, I know a guy that ran the crap out of his in a D30, and was running 37s

I had another friend with a YJ on 32's and a stock 35 that had the same failure with his lock-rite. I don't think the design is substantial enough for anything more than mild-moderate off-roading. If that's all you do (nothing more than mild rock crawling and no full throttle assaults) you should be fine in my experience.
