cheapest is welding, then lockrite, then up to your pocket book. I've run lock-rites w\o issue..

IF they make one for a 14 bolt, Genuine (4wpw house brand) QuickLock used to be less expensive than Lockrite. They look identical to me once you get them out of the box.

I've bought and installed 4 of these "lunchbox" lockers and have had zero issues with install or operation. One Samurai rear axle (31" tires), one Samurai front axle (35" tires), one Ram 1500 Dana 44 front axle (35" tires), and one more D44 front in a Sami (38" tires).

AFAIK, c-clip axles with a Lockrite aren't a problem until you break an axle. It's not the Lockrite that's the problem; it's the way a c-clip axle breaks that makes it tough to get apart when you have a lunchbox in there.

I run a quick-loc in the front of my rig & a lock-rite in the rear.I have had no issues yet,even with 40s on 1/2 ton axles.I am sold on the lock-rite as another member here Abuses his with 44s & 700hp with no probs yet.

There are only minor differances betwen the two,with the edge in strength going to the Lock-rite. The L-R has 4 sets of pins,with TWO springs per pin.this makes for a "tighter" lock...i think. The Q-L also has 4 pins but only ONE cheasy spring per pin,but I have yet to break it. Genuine gear also includes 'spare' pins & springs with the locker,if that tells you anything.almost like they expect it to break.

Hatch was right about c-clips & lunchbox lockers.if it so happens you need to remove the locker,it is a real pain.

Another vote for a lunch box locker. I've run a couple (lock right) had no problems other then having to replace the springs after a few years.
