Title: GB R180 Lokka Discount code
Post by: Thupertrooper (Victor) on February 23, 2016, 07:12:35 PM
Anybody looking to purchase a front Auto locker from Lokka there is a group buy going on right now. I got mine with a similar GB its at $259 right now which is pretty cheap.

I've heard this name before but with price being so cheap i'm Leery on the quality. Does anyone have any experience with Lokka products on the trail.

I em currently running this locker and love it
I got mine $10 cheaper and installed it myself best $250 i ever spent.
If you never driven a car with auto locker i suggest you do some research as it makes your driving technique different.

I would only recommend it to somebody with no locker at all as I don't know how it will react with both F&R locked.

so what do mean by driving technique different. Does lock up unexpectedly on hard cornering? how does it do on the highway? sorry for all the questions

What i mean is when 4x4 is engaged you can still turn just not sharp if giving it gas. You can coast in 4x4 when turning and you wont feel it.
If you are in 2wd you dont even notice it.

The worst part was having to 3 point turn in 4wd but if your X is aligned good you can drive on trails with 4wd on at any speed just know that when you give it gas it will want to go straight.

No problem
I don't know if anyone here has an auto locker as well.
You can drive my Pathy next time we do a run so you can see.

So, just to be clear the R180 can fit on a 2014 S model rear? This sound like a very reasonable mod and of course I will get  my mechanic to do the work. I know enough to be dangerous!

I've been stewing on this one and after getting stuck in snow today watching two tires spin I ordered it up.  What was the install like? Do I need to pull the entire diff?

The install for me was pretty easy even though i struggled on a couple things but i learned so heres my tips.
First remove cv axles lol i got diff off easy without removing them but struggled to install diff.
Second order or find the passenger side diff seal from the dealer only no one else ,not even rockauto.
You will need an impact wrench strong enough to take ring gear off.
The right stuff sealant and thats it.

For somebody who drove an open diff pathy to locked in the front i have no complaints. But going from a selectable locker to an auto locker i have no experience with. Might make the rig wheel better then ever or not.

After wheeling with a front locker, I never really needed a rear locker to help me get through anything. Closest thing was getting high centered going up hill lol
