No mate I'm in Roma western QLD. I was hoping to find some one in the Brisbane area.

Yeah so am I.
It will be a while, Summit racing were out of stock and it would be 1st of Nov before they could send it.

I haven't installed it yet it took an eternity to get here.
I am waiting until next time I have to go to Brisbane, hopefully some time in Feb and will take it to a diff specialist just in case there is any problems installing it. I am hoping it will go straight in as it is an Eaton and the lsd that comes standard on the RG is an Eaton truetrac

Unfortunately the locker didn't fit. It went very close and it was basically the anti rotation tab that was the problem.
The GM 8.6 has the rear cover and there is a little bit more room. The installer actually had it in there but the tolerances were to tight, he said he could have modified some things to make it fit but recommended against it.

I'm having mine installed at the moment. The installer has run into problems with the "single use bolts" on the diff which he didn't know the RG used. He's also changed both bearings.

GM do a genuine accessory rear locker, I'll find out if Holden released it.
Could be a good option.

I'm interested to hear how the E-lockers are going and if people are getting them installed in the front or rear...

Yeah I'm interested to hear from anyone who has the elocker installed too. Also has anyone got an air locker in their Collie?

I've had the elocker in for just over a week, truck seems to be a bit quieter. I've been told the genuine holden unit is a mutsuibishi diff but you never know.

Did you get Front or rear E-Locker and can you give me a ball park figure on price Bud?

Hi guys, am a bit curious about some of the information provided here, don't want to call anyone a liar but
gubarb: How do you know if the LSD is an eaton LSD? Is there any part numbers inside the diff? Also you said earlier the Colorado RG has The RG has the AAM760 in the front and AAM860 in rear, where did you find this information?
RADO12: who advised you that the diff is a mutsuibishi (I assume you were meaning Mitsubishi) diff, and what proof did he have?

Also I am a bit curious as to what people were doing with their Colorado RG. I was in the process of looking at a rear locker for my RG but can't seem to get over the barrier of giving up my LSD for the diff lock. I also don't want to put a locker in the front as I don't think my CV's would hold up to the extra strain (Particularly if I want to get a chip and exhaust for extra power and have gone larger tyres), and the fact that you loose steering in the front with a front locker.

has anyone got any suggestions, and comments of what an open diff is like compare to the LSD and will I miss if I do remove the LSD and go diff locks? Also has anyone put auto lockers (Detroit) in the Colorado RG and how does it perform?

Hi guys

Has anyone added an E-Locker yet to their RG's? I'm very interested in one. Feedback, good, bad or otherwise?
