Lunch box lockers are just that, lockers. Limited slips are completely different and worthless.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Vehicle? Specs? Driving habits and terrain?

A limited slip is just temporary until $$ for a selectable. So just looking for one of the three choices.

Will be running 36s or 35s.

lock rights are pretty popular and cheap

I have heard and read better things about the aussie lockers though

IF you are looking at a temporary solution do not buy a posi or limited slip. They are expensive and fairly ineffective. Get a lock right or aussie locker. Slap then in and go wheelin.

No Posi

A limited slip will cost the same or more than the inexpensive lockers. The install, if you pay, can be steep. If you run 35/36", then yo be seer ee uhs about wheeling, as said above, forget the posi. Waste of money. What rig ?

With 1600 posts you obviously know the difference between a locker and limited slip and I'm sure you have a reason for wanting it.
Out of the 4, I would say Power lock. It's like everything else, you get what you pay for.

i have a powerlok in the rear. it's very tight and works well. i've never noticed it actually work the way it was intended to. it's more like a spool. i've talked to many offroaders that say the only lsd they would consider is a powerlok. if you're set on lsd's, the powerlok is the only choice.
