I was wondering if any Patrols have "OX Lockers" installed?? Do you get them for the Patrol?

I have an OX installed on my current ride & it is bloody fantastic!!!

It's a manual cable activated locker, comes with a shifter, cable & a huge indestructible replacement diff cover.

I have only good things to say about the brand.

Any other opinions?

Sounds like the type that came with the up to 1995 ISUZU bakkie .. Neighbour still has one of those. Except your arm / hand being broken, that system is fool proof [O K .. a cable can snap but WHAT are the chances ???]

BUT ... speak to Mike Swann .. he imports lockers to SA for aaaaaaaaaaaaaages ..

I'm not sure if they make one to fit the Patrol, but if they do... It will be the first thing I order!
