Looks like an interesting product and will surely aid Subaru's off road.

Complete the page and show your interest, and they might just end up making it available to the rest of us!

There's a schematic on the site. Steel it and make your own if they don't want to respond.

Got some feedback from those guys today  ??? ???
The enquiry was sent 6 months ago. Well, at least they responded. Didn't know the Aussies were that slow.

Anyway, the response is copied below.
I don't think I'm interested anymore :( :(
It's just too pricey for a nice to have. There are more important things to spend my money on.

Their "nice discount" = 20%  ::) ::)
Who will pay shipping costs? Must be a few $$$, as it is the whole diff, which weighs a few kg's.

CAP Locker for your Subaru, we need your help...


Cap locker diff lock for your Subaru
Uneek 4x4 is ready to develop the CAP Locker diff lock for Subaru's but we need a bit more info from everybody. 

If you are legitimately interested in this product we need your help to progress. We will be running this as a crowd funded project to develop the product.  This way, we can ensure we get enough interested people to progress and are not left with a ton of un-sell-able diff locks.

As part of crowd funding you will get a nice discount on the product because you pay early.

So after looking at a few Subaru Diffs it looks like we are going to have to make a full replacement style diff lock. What this means is it will be a more traditional diff lock where we supply a complete new casing with new gears.  This differs from our partial replacement where only a bearing cap is replaced. Unfortunately we've had to go this way due to the design of the Subaru diff.It does mean a more expensive part as we have to make more components.

So If you still want one of these lockers, please replay back via email to sales@uneek4x4.com.au with the following information
Your name
your phone number
Vehicle you've got. 
Once we get enough people interested to fund the project we will proceed to take $1000 deposit for the project and develop the product. 

We will then need a few individuals to test the product for us before mass production after the design is done.

It is estimated that the retail price of each locker (remember low volume here) will be $1,800AUD and your total will be $1400, so you'll get a $400 saving off the locker.  It may take 4-8 months from start till you get the locker.

Thanks for your patients and looking forward to hearing from you all

Cheers

David
