    Keep yours and get an arb. Or get a ford 9 inch instead.

    Guys, those E lockers are in such demand & you don't see many out there for sale, the cheapest I've seen them here is $800-$850. Most go for around $1100

    Thats what I've been ponderin... cause I believe that my axle
    is larger/thicker than the e locked ones.. and it only has 90k on it,
    desert rat gave me a pretty good price for install on the arb as well.

    @4wd, really? I know they are in demand but I thought
    people wanted to do that as an alternative to a more expensive
    locker.. but If people want the same price.. I would rather go with
    new stuff I suppose..

    ARB is the same way plus more reliable and stronger. I have thought this through for months and was very close to doing an E-Lock axle swap. I'm going with ARB. The heavy duty ARB compressor also doubles as an OBA to fill tires.
