OH I know Bob since I am sticking with the 134L as a power plant the D-25 will be plenty for what I want to do. But I also would like a selectable locker so I'm going to have to look else where.

I wonder if the local Shop I had build my Dana 44 could just put a Dana 44 center section into my D-25???

Interesting idea. I’d like 44’s on both ends. Probably just need to have axles made.

Thanks for this article, it is very helpful.  I have a question about the thickness of the spacer.  You say it is about 5/16" and then measure it at 0.156".  I need to make one for my Wagon and 5/16 is 0.312, so should I use the .156?
thanks

Yeah, go with the micrometer measurement. The 5/16" is just a guess. Apparently a fairly poor guess! And even at the thinner measurement, I still had to smooth it down some 'cause is was wee bit too thick.

I think you may have meant 5/32, which is .156.
Thanks for the article.

Did you buy the ones they sell for 150 that are admittedly rusted or the 200$ that are cleaner ?

Thanks! I edited the original post, because there was no way that thing was better than a 1/4".

Directional control with any front locker is much worse than when open. I had factory elockers on my Landcruiser and almost never used the front locker due to poor steering. I have a locker on the REAR of my 2A - D41 axle.

Yes, I have been running it occasionally through the winter. I have been leaving the front end locked in to try and get a little "break-in" and I think it steers a bit easier than at first. Driving around the field, it does seem to keep both front tires moving well and functions more like a locker than limited slip. Steering is still fairly stiff. I drove it to town this afternoon and unlocked the hubs for that trip. Tonight I pulled it in the garage to swap in a new transfer case with 3.15 gears. I left the interlock pill out of the "new" x-case. I want to try and be cool like Stan and shift into 2WD for tight turns.

You won't regret it  Smile . .  Wilson has spent probably 50% of it's life in low rear 2wd.
