Had one while I was waiting for my Ected to arrive...broke an axle, took it out, sold it haha...but that's just my luck...many people are running them...
Do you have a D35 or D44??? If you have a D35...do I have a deal for you haha

i've seen them break axles but the locker holds up so i think they are the best bang for the buck

I've been running a lock right in the rear of my XJ for 5 years with both a standard and auto tranny and haven't had any issues or breakage in that time!
I run 33's and wheel pretty hard at times and have no issues at all and would recommend them....they are cheap and work fine...at least it has for me....

I believe it all depends on your wheeling style and the size of your engine.
What axles and engine do you have Thibs?
If you have a big V8 engine or wheel hard with a stock inline six cyl engine you could break a stock Dana35 C-clip axle shaft. But if you wheel carefully then a LockRite might be right for you. It's a very affordable upgrade (about $250 and real easy to install).
I have a Detroit locker in my rear Dana35 axle which operates a lot like a LockRite and a LockRite in my front Dana30 axle. Both are automatic lockers which means tight turns in 4WD can be difficult. Street driving with LockRite is okay if your easy on the "Go pedal".
I happen to have a couple of Dana35 LockRite's that I tried unsuccessfully to install in my axle. Make me an offer.
