Lokka only makes a front locker for the WD22s... There's no practical way (without custom shafts, etc) to put an auto locker in an Xterra H233B. It's a shame there's not more aftermarket support in NA, they are stout axles.

I wasn't willing to spend money on an ARB or TJM when it was coming out anyway so I welded the spiders into a solid ball and ran it, worked great for a few months before it got pulled.

Simply not true. '99 and early '00 (through 9/99) V6 Frontier 4x4s had 31-spline shafts that work with Detroit and other lockers designed for the 4-pinion carrier in the Hardbody pickups and Pathfinders. These are the correct width and bolt right up to the 33-spline housings, all you need is the carrier, locker, tube seals, and these shafts.

I have had a set in my 2001 Frontier since late 2004, running a Detroit locker. The axles are out there in the yards. Way back when I did mine the lockers were still pretty cheap and shipping was not outrageous on things like shafts and the like (I did mine for less than $650 total). Nowadays I am not sure how much you will save over just installing an ARB. Well maybe if you used a cheaper lunchbox locker option instead of a Detroit.
