Re: Eaton E-locker

I think Beezil has one in his front 44, and in fact he just had to repair/replace some of it.
HTH.

I stand corrected, it is a Detroit ELocker.
Still, I know he ate some of the internals recently, and last time I was there he had a box of stuff from Detroit sitting next to the disassembled, and non-working, locker.

Re: Eaton E-locker

From a practical point of view the only thing that appealed to me about them would be for use in the front, not the rear and once I discovered there was no D30 I lost interest. Would prefer the e-locker over an air locker though.

Re: Eaton E-locker

I read a post on Pirate about them testing them out the D44 and D60 units, never heard anything bad about them!! I'll be running them when i get my D44 in and when the D30 unit comes out! The main reason i'll be running them is because my cousin works for Eaton and i can get them for less then a normal Detroit!!!! I'll see if i can find the post on Pirate about them!

Re: Eaton E-locker

the Dana 30 is coming out next year or that's what eaton said.

Aaron i looked on Pirate and did not find much info, read the post on the D44 and D60, i like the ball ramp better than the shift fork style.

Re: Eaton E-locker

I found the post i was talking about, all they said was they were installing them in a few D44 and D60 to test at Moab, but they never posted to say how they worked out. Oh well, i'll keep looking for info! For the price i can't say no, so i may end up being the test dumby!!

Re: Eaton E-locker

better luck than me on Pirate, i posted the same ? and got flamed, so i deleted the thread. Randy's quoted me less than $600 for the Eaton for a 8.8 31 spline, so i will most likely be a crash test dummy to.
