friend of mine is running one in his front d44 under a ram. he's broken a few joints, an outer, and ripped the ears off an inner. no problems with the locker... took him forever to get it, but they kept him updated and didn't charge his card till it was shipped.

I've had no problems with the one in the front of my yota. I dont DD it, but that dont make any difference since it's not engaged on pavement.

I have mine in the front of my TJ D30. The rig is my daily driver and it works great. No popping at all, just clicking in the turns. Happy so far.

I had one in my D30.. no complaints. I went on 10+ runs with it.. no problems.. I sold it to a buddy who has a few more runs on it.

It locks up, and I don't see it breaking any time soon.. sounds good to me!

Not sure if it matters but mine was in the first batch of D30 aussies shipped here.

I've had it in the D30 (front) of my XJ daily driver for about half a year now. Very pleased, works excellent on and off road, BUT you should have free wheel hubs or vacuum disco or something for front applications, because if you brake hard and lock up one wheel unpleasant things start to happen (I have a vacuum disco, but i ripped off the hoses currently, have to convert it to wire or something)

Been hearing "The locker for the Dana 60 to be released shortly" for about a year now.

i remember hearing that too. there used to be a thread here on pirate somewhere. the guys at aussie posted about the delays in shipping and upcoming products. they did have pretty good comunication with me, but i did wait two months for it. guess they just arnt in a hurry.
