I believe ARB has a locker out know for the m220 rear. I also have selectrac and have been contemplating swapping out the LSD if it breaks down and going air lockers at least for the rear for now. If that is the case then eventually upgrading the front axel with a dynatrac 44 narrow to fit the narrower axel width.

Great thread! I'm looking at a Torq Aussie locker for the front as an interim step before a proper D44 with locker. My jeep is similar to others here - JLUS with D44HD M220 anti-spin in rear and open D30 M186 in front - 3.45 gear. I have the mopar 2" lift kit and 35x12.5s. I've been able to get through most of the difficult trails so far - although I've definitely noticed not having full locker. I priced putting in a D44 and full locker in the front and going to 4.56 in the rear at the same time. Yeesh! That's not a small number. I was thinking the Torq Aussie locker would be a good interim (and maybe final) solution at $400ish. If I ever blow that D30 - then upgrading will be an easy decision! Aired down with the extra lift, I'm hoping the combo of Aussie Locker, LSD, lift and 35s will get me close to stock Rubicon crawling performance. Has anyone gone with Aussie in front and LSD in back? Any experience?

how much was the quote?
I'm thinking about $7500 retail incl' tax. That includes ... Dynatrac pro-rock 44 4.56, elocker, sport/sahara chromoly axle and M220 rear regear kit. If you go airlocker, then you've got to get the ARB underhood pump too. Just based on time estimates from YouTube ... seems like a full day for someone experienced and maybe two if they're milking it with locker wiring / or ARB airpump install. I just don't have all the tools or confidence to attempt the gearing myself. So, maybe another $1000 to $2000 for labor plus sales tax. Anyway, that's just my unscientific guess. I think my wife would say no the second I said "I need [anything more] for the Jeep. Ha.

D44 Front & Rear, RE geared 4.88, ARB Rear locker, ARB twin compressor and 37's was quoted $9600
The 37's are probably $1000+ of that or more, and the rear D44 and second locker has got to be $3000ish or more with te compressor at $500. So, $9600 less $4500 = $4900. Looks like my guess of $7500 was too high. I guess shops get a nice mark-up on the parts so they can eat some labor.
