You will complain when it blows up, and it will. Well known fact that anything more than a bone stock vehicle will break one of these pretty easily. Heck, a stock truck with nothing more than 33" tires is a risk. I've seen several after the fact, and it usually ruins everything, including the housing.

Just a little friendly info.

If it is a Gov-Loc, the key word in your sentence is YET.

If you can afford to replace the rear easily because you've got spare parts or a friendly wrecking yard nearby, then I'll agree, run it till it blows. Just realize that it is the weakest traction differential built.

The real Detroit Locker is a whole different animal.

The DL isn't a spool, it will lock and unlock in a turn. The older models were notoriously noisy clicking and popping as they engaged and disengaged. They can be touchy in rain, not as drastic as a true spool, which is a solid link, no differential action.

The newest Detroits are very quiet, the SofLok, I don't believe they even sell the old clickers any longer. There are many options out there, I prefer the Detroit Locker due to their strength and internal structure, along with a good track record.

I can't access that site from my DoD work computer, but does that mean I don't have to pull mine out for pictures, lol? No. Need to change the R&P, which means dropping the entire rear suspension to get the tires/axles out.

My guess is SSedan gave you exactly what you need. I'll take a picture of mine for grins though.

Spools are just not for the street on a daily driver. Neither are welded spiders. Same thing, acts like a "live" axle, no diff action.

There should be a DL for your app, I will look later if you've not found one by then.

None of these? Looks like they cover every 12 bolt out there.
