    I'm feeling wheeling deprived at the moment....Came across a video of wheeling from last year and want to get back out in the worst way!



    After watching this video from :32-40 it makes me realize I need to stop complaining that I want more wheel travel

    Attempted to put the front diff in my truck last week, something is bent further than I had thought. New diff won't hit all the mounting holes under there..... Looks like its about to be plan D time...

    Both my Elockers have treated me well. The carrier is a major upgrade over the factory carrier, and even the spiders are stronger than the factory spiders. In the manual Eaton recommends engaging the elocker under 5mph, and with wheel speed differences not exceeding 50rpm. And they state that it can be engaged in straight line scenario up to 20mph, again provided that the wheel speed difference isn't over 50rpm.


    All those great things being said, I killed up a 10bolt elocker within the first year by not reading the instructions and engaging it while the wheels were turning . Reason being, the "light duty" elocker offered in the 10 bolt, 8.8, and D35 use a series of pins that slide into the spider gear about 1/8". As you engage the locker with aggressive wheel speed the pins generally "skip" a locking hole due to the wheel speed and after this happens many times the locking pin edges slowly round they become so worn down can no longer protrude far enough to hold the spider gears locked.

    On the bright side, If you do ever experience pin failure Eaton sells a rebuild kit for the pin style elocker that includes the pins, springs, and spider gears. IIRC the cost on that kit is around $150. There is a handy post by "Dave's Bronc 90" with the process and breakdown pictures of a pin style elocker rebuild over on FSB.

    Back to my story. I ended up getting another elocker installing it, I have been being careful about engaging the new locker and have been running it hard on 35x12.50 KM2's for over a year now and have had no problems, it's awesome! I would say that even if you have a "light duty" axle, as long as you're careful about how you engage it, they're awesome and to go for it.

    Here's an animation of how the Pin style elocker works


    The elocker in my 2500 is also an Eaton unit. It uses a Collar style locking mechanism that is found in all D44 and larger axles. The collar style locking mechanism is much nicer than the pin style locking mechanism in the lighter duty version and isn't susceptible to the kind of accidental damage the pin setup is. Though I still come to a stop to engage it.

    ^Comparison of the two locker styles

    TL;DR I have been very happy with both my elockers. I can say that if I had just RTFM I would never have encountered the problems I had with my first elocker.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions!
