I've always been a spool or detroit guy in my mud toys but the wife wants lockers in her 79 bronco, She's not ready for the spools and the cost of 2 detroits I just can't justify for HER truck, Will they hold up to a mild 460 and 35" swampers?

The lockrights will probably hold up as long as she's not hammering it. But i've seen a few of them break in 4cyl toyota's rock crawling.

Thanks guys, I ordered the lockrites from Rocky road outfitters, $212 for the 9" and $244 for the dana 44. cheapest prices I found in my 2 days of internet shopping:damnit . Now as long as she don't let me drive it they should stay together.

To: Mrs. IDIeselman, Before letting Mr. IDIeselman drive your beloved bronco, carefully remove half the sparkplug wires from the motor and keep in your purse until said bronco is returned un-molested.
Sincerely,
FIREBALL
