Question for tech guru's

I have found where I can get a Dana 44 complete front from a Rubicon JK.
My Question is, does thje e-locker just require 12vdc to activate?
I.E. can I just run a wire to it, VIA a toggle switch on the dash, from any 12VDC power source, to lock it in?? Or is it some electronic gizmo that HAS to go through the ECM??
Thanks in advance
Don

It's not ECM-controlled. Just need a 12V power switch and as long as it comes with the pigtail, you're good. At least that's how things went with the last JK axle swap I took part in.

Yes and no.

The activation only requires a 12vdc power source to engage the coil. There is also a sensor that sends a signal back to the PCM to inform of "if" and "when" the locker actually engages. This controls the little diff lock light on the dash.

It is not needed but so you will more than likely just hook up the connection on top of the differential housing to a toggle switch and leave the threaded looking connector disconnected. It is located just above centerline and on the backside of the left side of the differential housing.

Hey, Thanks. All I am going to do is to run power thru toggle. I am not too worried about the light in the dash.
When I get all done, on one side of my jeep it will have sticker that says
"RUBICLONE"
And on the other side it will say
"SAHARACON"
