Running OX locker in Sals rear

Well ive seen this on the board a few times. Sals rear is almost a d60...id like to run an Ox locker because it has a manual cable option instead of needing air or electric.

They only come in 30 or 32 spline flavors.

Rovertracks info seems to be lost on the web...any insight here?

A Salisbury IS a Dana 60, not like one. Made by Dana.

You can run a Dana 60 locker. They use a slightly different bolt size, so that needs to be addressed.

The biggest problem will be the 30 spline axles. Getting 30 spline axles will be easy as lots of places sell custom length axles. Getting a 30 spline drive flange is the fun part. You can probably convince someone to make you a pair, but you would need to ask around.

A lot less hassle to buy an ARB...

I thought that the pinion bearing and seal were different ? Yea is it worth the trouble just for cable operation?

really dont want a compressor, lines and more electrical in my truck


what about getting 30 spline inner and 24 spline outer combo shafts...any suggestion on who could make these?

Sure, but you are talking about changing the differential, not the ring and pinion.

Everyone should have a compressor that goes off road. It does not need to be electric.

May be possible, but I can't imagine it would be cheap.

I'm at a loss to think of a reason NOT to have a compressor.

running the locker is basically a bonus in its usefulness.

I totally get that line of thinking. My view on this is to keep the truck as absolutely simple as possible, only add on I've done in years of ownership has been an electric fan and a radio. Kinda an ocd thing I guess.

Really the arb is the best way but, I'm such a cheezeball about these sorts of things I might just put a Detroit back there instead

There is always the old Jack McNamara wrench actuated locker.

Best option, IMO. With Chrome-Moly halfshafts and you are good to go.
