Lockers - Spartan Lockers (they are similar to the Lockright 1510) they use the original side gears.
They were about $189 + shipping + customs
My cousin hand carried them so saved on shipping + customs

Next addition should be lights

Hey Ajay
Nice to see your thread. Thats a well maintained vehicle you have there.
Also I like the idea of taking time and then doing the mods slowly and gradually. This way one can easily judge the before and after performance.
Great going buddy!! Keep it up
Cheers

Thanks Harjeev
The build so far has taken more than a year. The only 2 mods in quick succession were the lockers and snorkel. Despite having done a ~40KM OTR in Chikmagalur, I still have not come to terms with the locked rear's capabilities. The Hornet's offroading capabilities seem to have increased 10 fold!!

Thanks.
As for the lights I think I will look at more economical options. Considering the usage, it would hurt to see broken lightforce/Roolites/etc.

Headers - first I want to see how this performs and behaves in various scenarios (on and off road). Taking the mods 1 step at a time.

Default Lockers

GB,

I assume you have got lockers only for the rear differential, correct? Also, how much time and money spent in getting them installed? What is the mechanism you have to engage/dis-engage them?

Cheers

These are full time lockers. They are always engaged. Since my Hornet is not used as a daily drive I felt it was ok to use a full time locker

I have not done anything for these items. I have put in the Snorkel to prevent water from entering the air intake only. For the short water fordings that I typically go through, none of these should pose any problems.
