    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    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.

    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.
