If your main reason is MPG's don't it would take years if ever to recoup the cost of a re-gear your not going to see that much more.

Unless you want to spend the money for an ARB it's not worth going through the hassle and paying the money for a locker and regear. You can buy a LockRight for a fraction of the cost and install it with the help of another person in 4 hours.

It's an auto locker or "lunch box locker" meaning that it locks up when you are going straight and unlocks when going around turns. There is no "on" or "off" switch like with an ARB or the factory e-locker. The lockright is made by Richmond Gear and can be purchased through any of their dealers, JEGS, Summit, East Coast Gear Supply, and Randy's Ring and Pinion to name a few. The lockrights are more for dedicated off road rigs as they tend to be noisier when they lock/unlock. The powertrax unit is supposedly quieter and thus a little more street friendly, although I'm not sure they make for your diff. Some folks don't like them because the locker can't be turned off when driving on slick road conditions like snow or ice. As far as I know they are pretty reliable. I haven't run one myself, but I was about to at one point.

I've had mine for 3 weeks and I haven't heard one sound from it. Haven't heard it engage or disengage. I get absolutely 0 sound from mine. The only way I know it's still there is when I feel it engage when getting on the gas.

But with the manual I've heard it's better to run the Powertrax No-Slip instead of the LockRight.
