    I’ve run them, they are on par with a lock-rite or spartan. Same as any “lunchbox” locker, they have always worked good for me, though the ratcheting action is usually a bit rougher and more violent than it would be with a Detroit or equivalent automatic locker

    Maybe it’s shimmed too tight? Did you put in together with shims or thrust washers on the sides? What is the gap in the middle between the two halves of the locker? Should be between .145 and .170. And with a feeler gauge the gap between the cross pin and the drivers should be between .005 and .020

    I have them in a Landcruiser. Done right, they are pretty good but you do know they are there. Icy roads kinda suck but everything else is ok. For 1/3 the price of a selectable locker, they are a great way to get you wheeling.
    Some people are as useful as a football bat.
