Hello pilgrim4life!
I haven't sent it away,instead I did the installation myself.The detroit gearless locker is really simple it's just metal friction disc (just like a motorcycle clutch) that transmit the power to boht wheel.It's my second Honda with one and I never had any problem with it execept that it's harder to steer when in four wheel drive and the positive side is that you will not recognize your machine because you will be able to go where you couldn't before.I almost never need my whinch.And the installation was not so hard with the Honda shop manual.There's a small lip in the diferantial to be machine down, my friend with a machine shop did it in five minute and didn't charge me nothing.

I have a post in this forum that has some tips on the installation if you do it yourself. I did both mine and it is as Miner says. Great. Real 4WD

Hello RobG!
Yes it will be possible to remove the gearless locker,but for returning the diff to the original way from what I can understand,when you open your diff and separate your ring gear and the housing (page 17-19 in the shop manual under Differential disassembly) you can see that the lip in question seem to hold in place the "side cone spring",there should be a way to put it back in operation without having to buy a new diff.I whent fourwheeling in deep mud this afternoon and it remembered me why I like the gearless locker.Can't get enough mud.

Hi raven!
I never had a grizzly but I can tell you that you won't recognize your Rincon wen you get to a mud hole you have to try it to see the difference.And for the two front wheel, yes they remain lock under all condition.I had the chance to try mine multiple time and it never failed.You can see the installation instruction on the Highlifter web site.
