I don't know much of anything about jeeps at all and just looking to find out some info. what would this model be considered, a yj, cj, etc.... like i'm really new to jeeps and don't know anything. Look foward to learning more about them.

A wrangler from years 1997-2006 is considered a TJ. You'll like that 2000, it was an excellent year.

on some other notes, when your making a turn in the jeep, there is a clicking noise coming from the rear, what could that be? a locker in the rear end or something? or is it fucked?

Lift the jeep up from center section. Move one tire forward. If the other tire moves the same direction you are locked up. If it turns the opposite direction you have an open diff.

How loud is the click??

its not too too loud, sounds like when a cv joint starts to go bad on a front wheel drive car.

I would change the diff oil and see if it gets better. Once you pull the cover you will see exactly what's in there.

That is a possibility. You will hear the locker "ratchet" around corners. It is opening up and allowing it to differentiate. It really depends on the exact sound it makes. A locker will make a different sound versus brakes or bearings.

Yes, an autolocking locker would do that.

Do you know who the previous owner is? I am thinking with it lifted, bigger tires, etc as you described, it is PROBABLY a auto locker, like a Detroit or a Lockright or an Aussie locker.

I have one in front. My back end is selectable (I decide when it is on).

Welcome to the site!
