Elite Gear?

Surfing Ebay, stumbled across this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/GM-10-5-CHE...cAAOSw5ZtaXi5x

Obviously a knockoff of a Detroit Locker. The manufacturer part number follows the same basic form as a Yukon Grizzly Locker part number with just a few characters changed.

So, is this a Yukon rebadged with a different name? Lower cost knockoff of the Grizzly built by someone else? Overpriced paperweight?

Elite Gear?

My semi educated guess is that they may be a Yukon locker. Iíve bought the USA Standard axles and they are rebranded Yukonís without the warranty from what I can tell. All the markings are identical and the part numbers are very similar. This may be the same situation with these.


However why by the non warrantied part with for $15 more you get the real deal.

It's the house brand for Ron's Machine in SoCal, so it will be a mix of different manufacturers stuck in a different box.
