 They work pretty well from what I've seen, I used to run a Detroit in my Montero and the Aussie works about like that.
PROS: Very reliable, Easy to install, Inexpensive
CONS: More effort to steer in 4WD, Increased CV wear, AWD becomes less useful

 Just for giggles Air Locker
PROS: Selectable, Stronger than stock differential,
CONS: More involved install, Less reliable (Still pretty reliable), Expensive

 Aussies are pretty nice.

These guys usually have the best prices http://lokka.com/
Install thread here http://4x4wire.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/969199.html

What's the rear axle coming out of? And make sure you swap in the matching front axle ratio at the same time.

I just received mine from torq masters. 3 days to ship. I will be using the link to 4x4 wire in this tread to do the install hopefully in the next month or so.

Quick question. I plan to replace the auto hubs with aisin hubs but do I have to??  The front will still free wheel when in 2wd right?

The auto hubs will still disconnect.

I really like the Aussie locker. I had to put in a sr front diff. 4.63. So I still have 4.9 front and rear with factory rear air locker. 9 rear. Yes 9 rear factory locker. 4.875 sitting in my garage.

How come they don't list the Gen 2 SR DOHC (94-96) as being compatible with this? It is, right?

I dunno, man. With the addition of the "new" SR, I can live with the Aussie in the white one. Convince me otherwise.

That's probably pretty true, i lived with the Detroit for a lot of years and honestly didn't even think about getting an ARB until Lloyd was selling his.

I do like it a lot more though.

I'm sort of still kicking myself for not grabbing the 4.90 axles from a 93 SR a few years back, but I would have lost ABS and needed a different flange on the drive line for the rear to bolt up.
