My 9" came with a mini-spool. Since I plan on dd'ing my Jeep once again in the future, this is not ideal. I want a locker I can engage or disengage either electrically or mechanically. Opinions? Recommendations?

I'm a huge fan of the ARB, if you can swallow the cost it's very worth it. Then again I daily drove my Jeep with a lock-right in the rear for a very long time and it really wasn't that bad. There wasn't that much additional tire wear either, only from me driving like an idiot. My 14 bolt has a detroit in it so we'll see how that goes.

Hmm.. ARB's are around $900+. Ox doesn't make such an animal - and even if they did, they would want an arm, leg, both kidneys and my first born. Eaton has been rumored to make an elocker for a Ford 9, but I haven't seen anything anywhere yet.

[Edit - It looks like if Eaton makes one, it'll be in the $600 range. I have an email out to them asking for model #s. I'll post back once they respond.]

I've never driven a locked vehicle before. Let's just say I end up putting an Aussie locker in the rear. Compared to the mini-spool that's in it right now, how will it behave overall?

It will be much more tame with the lunchbox locker. Mine would only grab through corners if I gave it a bit of gas. After you get used to the new driving style you won't even notice it's there. They do pop occasionally but it didn't seem to hurt mine after ~4 years of driving on it. It looked brand new when I took it out to sell it.
