Thanks guys! I think I will get the Ashcroft 3rd member with a locker. I believe they can do that with a 4 pin instead of a 2 pin. It's pricy but I plan to look after this truck and drive it for the rest of my life. Do some upgrades along the way... I'll have to check what the best place is to get that from here in BC. Cheers. and many thanks for the help!

There's no such thing as a 2-pin ashcroft locker, so you'd better be getting a 4 pin for your money!

The half shafts yes but those are simple to upgrade. The center is way stronger than 24 spline.

Mine is a 110. I believe that would not fit? And could you explain to me what 354's are?

Yours is no longer a "110" axle in the conventional terms, you have a 90 axle, perhaps with 90 or 110 spring seats, who knows.

Mark's diff would install easily. 3.54 is the gear ratio on the 3rd member

Thanks Zack. I understand now. That sounds like it would fit. Mark: mine is 24 spline; is yours 10 or 24? In order to install it would I need any other parts? Seals? etc.

97s were all 24 spline. I'm not sure which seals you would need.

some edits based on comments from other folks:

use RTC3511G for the hub seals and RFD10000 for the hub nuts

Thanks guys, that helps a lot. I'm getting Mark's old diffs. for now. That way I have some money for other upgrades I need to do and I can do the locker at a later date.

Check your propshaft length as well… For example: Sals are a bit longer in the nose and thus slightly shorter rear propshaft.

Thanks, yes, should be ok because mine was not a Salisbury but a Rover axle. So should be a simple swap :-)
