Yes, but...

The only company I know of that sold them was Calmini.
Limited Slip

Unfortunately, they have been listed as 'unavailable' for longer than I can remember.

You can get selectable lockers for the Sammy like the ARB air locker or the KAM electric locker. Then you can just turn them off when you don't need them. They are not as 'inexpensive' as a Lockright, but when treated right they will prove to be worth the expense. I run both styles in my rigs (trail - ARB, street/trail - KAM).

None of the Samurai specialists currently has a LS differential. Trail Tough, Hawk and others used to offer them, but when the supply dried up, Calmini was the only one NOT to take it off their website. Thus, it only LOOKS like Calmini has 'em.

I was told by Brent at TT that the supplier needs an order for 300 to start making them again. No one seems to be stepping up.
