OX has a following in the off road crowd, buggies, purpose built rigs, like anything some love others hate them. Google is your friend, check out Pirate they'll no BS reviews. What axle and application are you looking to put it into?

I have a dana 50 or 60 (gotta check the code on the axle) in the front and sterling 10.25 in the rear.

For the rear I would recommend a Detroit or Grizzly over a selecable locker or a Truetrac if you wan't something less aggressive. In my opinion a rear selectable locker doesn't make much sense on a street driven vehicle because it is either open or fully locked, neither of which is good for a street vehicle. For the front it makes more sense because there are times where you want the front to be open, but you would still have the ability to lock it when you need to. However I still prefer an Auto locker or a Truetrac in the front for better reliability. Since your truck is an 02 model 99% chance it is a Dana 60 front. I am not sure how you use your truck but if it was me, I would put a Detroit or Grizzly locker in the rear and a Truetrac in the front. I would have a Truetrac in the front of mine if they made one for the Dana 50.

I put this in my D80 when I re-geared to 4:10s. I paid $250 a year ago, looks like he raised the price $100...still a killer price for a new truetrac!

If you have a dually that would be a great option.

Absolutely! I was very hesitant because $250 new was $500 cheaper than anywhere else I could find it. I kept telling myself it's too good to be true, I sent it to several buddies and called the seller everyone said it'll work! My truck is 2wd, so a truetrac makes a huge difference.

I do a lot of driving on the beaches at Cape Hatteras. The open diff is the worst.

That's fun I have had my truck down there a few times, I usually end up pulling someone else out. I think you would be better off with a front and rear Truetracs or a Truetrac front and Detroit locker rear. The ox lockers are good quality but they are expensive, the cable is difficult to route and they get seized up if your not using them all the time, if you live close to the ocean where there is allot of salt that would make it worse.

I run about 20-25 psi it makes a huge difference. The first year I was down there I had stock size tires on and I aired them down and it did just fine. When I came back a couple years later I had my 35s and I figured since they where wider than my old tires where when aired down that I wouldn't need to air down with the 35s, but I was wrong, I ended up berring it down to the axles. I then aired down to 25 psi and drove right out.

I am a huge fan of lockers. I feel that my 2wd 450 I have now with the Locker is more capable than my old 99 350 4x4 was.

cjfarm11 is starting off with a positive reputation.
So with a true trac in the front and the hubs unlocked will they be ok on pavement?
Also what is involved to make a Dana 44 in a Dana 50 housing?

The truetrac in the front acts just like an open differential in 2wd so you can run it with the hubs locked or unlocked it doesn't matter. As for putting one in a Dana 50 check out this thread. https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...dana-50-a.html
