The Eaton E-Locker is a electronic push button selectable locker . It goes from open to spool with just the push of a button, no air lines to leak or cables to get hung up on. 12 Volt power is all that's required.
I have a jeep with a Ford 8.8 axle. I've read a bunch of treads stating the design of the Eaton eLocker for the 8.8 is poor and as a result, the locker is extremely vulnerable to breaking. Is this a true statement? Have you received more customer complaints/warranty claims on the ELocker vs other lockers for the 8.8? Thank you for your feedback.

We have had very few returns on this unit the last was over 2 years ago. The 8.8 locker was out of stock for almost a full year so not that many sales. But since they have been back in stock for the last 11 months we have had no returns. The most common complaint is not locking the electric coil down correctly. Which is installer error not a fault of the unit. If it is not locked down with the supplied tap it will spin and pull the wires loose.

What type of fluid is best used for this combo ford 8.8 with Eaton e locker?? I have heard 85w140 non synthetic. Is this correct?

Yes that is a good all around weight to use and yes use non synthetic. We recommend the Lucas 85-140 you can check it out on our website. Type LUC10042 in the search field.
