Uh... What? He had a Dana 44 in the front and a Ford 9 in the rear for the entire scenario I've mentioned (All of the LRs and the Detriots he's still got)Originally posted by Boom-boom Shacka-lacka-lacka-boom:

I know a Jeeper that had his LR waranteed 3 times in a month before finally sucking it up and buying Detroits. He's had 2 Detriots on a twin-stick, 9-inch and D44 axles, 35" boggers, a 4:1 T-case, and 401 V8 for 5 years without incident.
First off - you cannot compare different axles in this conversation. Dana 35c rear axles eat lockrights and EZ lockers like snakc cakes...
For a Dana 35c for examople - you are BEGGING for a lockright failure due not to the locker itself - but to a ntoriously weak carrier, and housing flex...

Lockrights are far from being "that bad" for on road manners...
