Independent4x proudly announces the release of the Isuzu front 10-bolt IFS Aussie Locker automatic locking differential.

RICHMOND, VA, January 2007 - Independent4x, in a joint venture with Torq-Masters Technology, Inc., is proud to announce the release of a new locker for the Isuzu 17-spline 10-bolt Independent Front Suspension (IFS) axle. Independent4x will be the exclusive stocking distributor of this long-awaited application. The first of two Aussie Locker automatic locking differential applications for Isuzu is set to ship during the first quarter of 2007.

This front application covers the full range of 1987-2004 Isuzu 4 wheel drive vehicles: Trooper, Rodeo, Amigo/Rodeo Sport, 4x4 Pickup, Axiom, and Vehicross models.

The second application, the Isuzu 26-spline 12-bolt rear locker, is currently under development and scheduled for release mid-year 2007. This locker will cover the rear Isuzu corporate 12-bolt axle found in all Troopers from late 1987-1997, Amigos and pickups through 1994, and all Vehicross models. This is an exciting new product as it will be the first locker of its kind to be developed for this axle.

Both applications are currently available for pre-order by calling Independent4x at (804) 550-0480 Monday-Friday 9am 6pm EST or online at www.independent4x.com.

Indepdendent4x also offers all other Aussie Locker applications, including the rear Dana 44 found in 1993-2004 Rodeos and 1998-2004 Amigo/Rodeo Sport vehicles.

Yep, shouldn't be a problem. The old Powertrax Lockright for the 10-bolt (no longer in production, and very similar to the Aussie locker) was developed for the rear 10-bolt and people used them often in the front 10-bolts, so it should work the other way 'round, too.

it will fit the rear 10 bolt drum brake axle in the 85-87 troopers.......i excluded that application to avoid any confusion as we will mostly be selling these for the front application.

It will not fit the Older front "8 bolt" IFS


so, there you go, get locked up in the rear asap <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

I wonder if one of these would fit in the case of those nonstandard 98 Amigo 4.77's? Seems like a reasonable chance. But then again, this type of locker in a front application probably isnt a real good idea.

I was wondering that exact thing <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I'm getting rid of my 98 Amigo 4.77's, but I also happen to have a spare carrier from the same application. It's worth a try. You can have it Matt, but you have to come to Uwharrie to pick it up <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

Nope, they won't fit the odd ball 98 carrier. I tried. The opening is physically too small to get the unit in where the spider gears had been.

Heres a pic of the size difference between my '98 Amigo "odd-ball carier" and the '99 Trooper part I used for the install. The difference is as much as it looks.
Trooper on the left, Amigo on the right

One thing I am curious about though. It looks like the SOTF front ends are the same as the non SOTF units, and they just bolted the SOTF unit on to the end of the old housing. anyone know for sure?

Well, it was worth a try. Were you able to use the standard carrier with the gears from the '98?

Still coming to Uwharrie Matt? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Honestly, I didn't try. It was easy enough to find a front third member with the correct gears in it, so I use that and all of the parts that came with it (minus the odd TOD pinion flange)

From what I recall, I don't believe the 98 gears fit anything but the 98 third member.

Also I couldn't fit the standard third member in the 98 housing.

oh yeah, the cross shaft was also considerably smaller in the 98 differential.

I am trying to purchase a 2000 Amigo 4X4 for my son. It does have the V-6, but no LSD. Would these lockers mentioned in this thread fit the 2000 Amigo? What effect will it have on gas mileage? My son is a poor college student <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />.

The 10-bolt locker will fit the front of that Amigo. The 12-bolt rear would work in a 1st gen (89-94) Amigo. The 2nd gens (98+) have D44 rears.

Read the first post. It specifically states if the Aussie lockers will work in a Trooper of your year or not. Only other options for the rear are an ARB or welding it up.

The Aussie locker sounds great. Must have one...question: is it a LSD or full lock?
also how do I strengthen the front IFS and increase travel of my rody without lifting?

It is a locker.

The short answer is, you can't...not without mucho fab work anyway. The only way to increase IFS travel to any significant degree is to make longer control arms, like the desert racers use. Which involves modifying pretty much everything in the front end...steering, axles, suspension, EVERYTHING.

The nice thing about the locker is that it allows you traction even when your IFS doesn't keep both wheels on the ground...

we have a good list going for the rears.

i would say we are now in the "prodution" phase. i am patiently waiting.

updaye on the fronts: we are over 1/2 sold on the front production run. DON'T put it on the back burner....if you want a front .....go a head and buy one while we are still waiting on the rears.


thanks for the support guys.

pipe down you 2

it's on for Dec. I am expecting to take final delivery in December...that means I will be shipping out Lockers shortly there after for customers.

Customers on my current reserve list will receive the lockers 1st.

to get on the list, all you have to do is call in and i will put your Name, contact, & payment info down and i will call you once the lockers are actually sitting on the floor of my shop.

Get your Christmas $$ together <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

i am very excited about this.....been a long road to get here. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />
