I have Aussie front with locking hubs and no slip in back.  I haven't had any locking / unlocking issues.

Aussie lockers can't be beat on the trail but dual Aussies put slack in the drive line that isn't as much fun to drive on the road if you have a standard. If I did it again I'd try something different in the back for better road manners. I'm curious to see how Wooly makes out with his Powertrax. I tried one in the back of mine and wasn't happy. It wouldn't work off-road and wouldn't unlock on the road so I sent it back.
what would be a better combo?

How does the no slip differ from the lock right?

The no slip has a few different parts which are supposed to reduce driveline backlash and allow the outside wheel to over run the inside wheel and unlock the system in corners. Other than that they are very similar.

I'd be interested if the price is right
10% off, so $25-$30 off, Just like Rough Country these are priced the same everywhere, its finding someone who will go below set price,I want 2,one for my 30 and one for the 44.

I can tell you that the powertrax no slip I just installed in the back of mine is pretty much invisible on road.  If I blip the throttle it locks and jerks me straight but if I drive normally I hardly know is there.  No clicking or anything.  I haven't tried it off road yet but expect it to perform similarly to my Aussie.

Ya that's true. I did call CSE several times this week and there was no answer. So I ordered a Lock Right through work Friday.

My rig has dual Aussies and they work great. They're cheap to buy and you can install them yourself. IMO they work better than selectables because they have enough slip to allow you to turn and the tires won't break traction in a turn. An auto-locker is the only way to go in the front.

Possibly, are these automatic?

They are a US made lunchbox.  Similar to a Lock-rite or a spartan (Spartans come with a new cross pin I believe, whereas the others don't)

Aussie is also the only lunchbox locker available that works in a non-rubicon JK D44 carrier that I'm aware of.
