Welcome to the forum mate...
Detroit Locker might be avaliable, or you could put in a mini spool.

Yup, mini spool is always locked, not street legal.

If you fit a 9" centre you can then fit an ARB air locker. You activate this manually. It will all cost over $2000 in parts.

You could fit a Lock Right "Powertrax", which unlocks automatically around corners. This will cost over $700 in parts, and installation is cheap.

A Detroit Locker is similar to the powertrax but much more expensive and may not even be as good.

Detroit E-locker is not really available for the xf diff.

Otherwise consider an OE or KAAZ LSD.
