One that works and doesnt cost American who had like 36 years in over $60,000 in retirement, stay away from Auburn please Cal is a crook who tried ripping of the retirees, my dad gave 36 years of his life to Auburn Gear, and ya I would go with OX!!!!!!

My diff guy says eaton is the best?He retired from dana and still does nothing but axle work,so I took his word for it and bought an eaton for my chevy,love it,way better than the factory G80 it had?After all the research I did I would say eaton.The wife says she does'nt like it cause it sends her sideways in the rain and snow,but thats why I bought it cause it works every time. :eyebrows:

From what ive been told, the e-lockers arent really lockers, just limited slips. I liked the thought of an e-locker cuz if theres any damage to the wire, its much easier for me to fix than an air line or cable. No compressor needed. and no cables to worry about binding up. But with them just being a limited slip basically (and if you look at the cut away drawing auburn has for its ected locker, you can see it really is just a limited slip), im decided away from them.

With the OX, you HAVE to use their diff cover, it's part of the design. The cable won't pass through your other cover.

sounds good. Not sure when I will have everything together to put mine in. But if you are ready to sell it and I dont have one yet, look me up.
