I am in desperate need of one since my spiders gears blew while Wheeling. I can't seem to get a hold of Lokka themselves and cannot find anyone else that produces a Lunchbox locker for the r180. I would be willing to buy an r180 diff with the Lokka already installed (if its in working order and the price is right). Where I live they want $500 for replacement spider gears which is insane and will just break again anyways. Any help is appreciated!

i happened to be in the market for one of these as well, and noticed their website has been crapping out and the facebook page is nothing but poor reviews. poor timing i guess.

They mentioned a trademark on their website belonging to Torq (U.S. based) and was debating emailing them and seeing if they could obtain the R180 version for me. Or, at least determine what Torq/Aussie/Lokka relationship is. Otherwise why would an Australian company care about a U.S. trademark or patent?

On a semi-related note, I did hear that ADO and Torq Masters are co-developing an Aussie locker for us. Don't know anything about it other than that though.

I did email them actually and they responded saying:
Thanks for reaching out. We do not currently have a R180 locker, but we do have it on our prototype to-do list. We are behind right now on production, so that is running on our prototype machines and production machines. Later in the year we will get back to developing new models.


Lokka is a very sketchy company, I wouldn't be surprised if they are out of business. The writing has been on the wall for years.


I think ARB may make a R180, but it's pricey.

That is a copied and pasted email. Seems like we're SOL for now. Not sure what other options there are besides Titan swap. That's just a little too pricey right now.
