These "lunchbox" lockers performs well off road (all off them)
The problem comes on road, here they do not have nice manners and will lock if in town and power is applyd around corners
they also have the tendency to "shake" the car viciously every now and then (the first time this happened to me I thought the end was near , but you get used to it after a while)

Bang for bucks there is nothing better
150kw and more motors have a tendency to eat these little lockers though

Rule off thumb says that 70% improvement in the rear and only 30% in the front
Personally my competition truck is open in the front

you buy the aussie locker offline only as far as i see and on average there a 1/3 of the price and they say they are easier to fit than the ez locker
