Have you looked into OX lockers? Not sure if they make em for the D80 tho..
They are a cable driven locker so they act like an ARB but without the air. Open when not engaged but its a 100% positive lock when engaged. I like this better than the drop in lockers due to how they react on ice, snow, and around corners.
On ice/snow if towing you will be jackknifing all over the palace which is why the optional lockers are nice. Especially with the amount of torq our vehicles have, it dont take much to break the tires loose on ice...
Around corners if giving it gas they will lock up and make your tires hop, annoying while normal driving, very annoying when towing cause there aren't many corners you just roll through, once you give power to that rear diff it locks.
Let us know what you come up with tho. There is also Aussie locker, not sure if they make for our vehicles but i know they are a lot better than lock rite.
