Aussie locker for 60/10.25 combo

Looking for a little advice building a 92' one ton standard cab that will be sitting on atleast 39.5" boggers and wanted to know what people thought of the aussie lockers for front and rear. Will mostly use it for snow and mud but occasionally the rocks to. Should I run something like this or wait awhile and pony up for some detroits. Keep in mind I am married and she does monitor the build fund unfortunatly.

I had one in the front of my 79 F150. Loved it. Well built, locked when you wanted, unlocked when you wanted to turn.

go for it, but i dont think they make an aussie for a sterling..

I have a lockright in the back of my f-350, and love it..

as well as a lockright up front in my truggy, with 40" boggers, soon to be 43" sx's

i would never question the strength of either of them..

Is aussie making one for the 60 now?

When I built mine they didn't offer one, so I have a lock right up front. I have shattered 3 stock stubs, multiple lockouts, and have never damaged the lock right.

Sorry dude, you'll have to go Detroits

Torq Masters doesn't make the Aussie for any one ton axle.
