I purchased mine at ATV outfitters 928GT .....339.00 Easy Steer Detroit Gearless Locker !! only shopped around a little bit though . We get Big snow here in Newfoundland, so it's a good choice for my application ( lots of bogg , mud , everything here as well )

I bought mine at Yasky because HL was on back order for 2 months. BIG MISTAKE..........there was a missing part and one excess part resulting in complete disassembly THREE times. You know who helped me out and shipped a part for free.............yep HL. Go right to the source.

This was my third DGL and the other two were ordered right from HL without incident; plug and play.

Good advice and will most likely get it from HL. Since they seemed to have instigated Eaton to make it, they deserve some support. Just wanted to be a smart shopper and do a little research first.

Thanks as always for everyone's help!

AMEN, I have been looking for an electric or air lockers for an ATV. No luck so far.

I have used ARB air Lockers in the past and my Jeep Rubicon came stock with factory Air Lockers front and rear. Both have worked great!

But i guess thats a mystery, but however they did send a new bottle , 2 weeks later ha ha ..... just wiped down unit really good with some light oil, then brake kleen... my .02

You mean the only Gearless locker (that you and I know of). There are plenty of other lockers for ATVs, Spool lockers and the famous legendary "Lincoln Locker".

On top of that every other ATV manufacturer(except Honda) has a selectible Diff lock, so somebody else makes ATV lockers too.

2005, Jeep Rubicons (at least the first 2-3 years, can't say for sure on 2007-2008 ) come with air lockers. An ELECTRIC switch turns on a low pressure air pump that activates the locker and then an electric sensor(located where the anti-lock sensor would normally be) verifies the "lock-up" and lights up the indicator on the dash. Installed many of the Factory Jeep Rubicon Dana 44 Air Locker systems in early Jeep Wrangers and know them intimately. Neat little systems, wish I could shrink it with a "shrink ray"

Now if we could just shrink one of these (see photo) Rubicon Rock-Trac Transfer Cases with 4.1 gear reduction and stuff it in our Foremans we could run 35" tires and spin the heck out them

DUDE, putting a Jeep Rubicon Transfer case and 35" Tires on a Foreman was a JOKE I can go anywhere I desire on my 26s.

Brown Mountain is 30 minutes away from me, been riding there for 20+ years. Maybe we will see each other there. Planning a weekend Boondock trip there in the next month or so. Keep an eye out for a Nitrous Toyhauler, stop by and say Hi.

When is this BADD site going to be up and running?
Last I heard was a month or so before any real details will be there. I think all there is now is an "intro" page.
