Rear locker

Would this be a direct swap with my 05 X TJ?

he has a 06 TJ, doesn´t he already have a rear D44? i have a D44.

it´s cheaper to install that rubi d44 rear axle than paying for regearing and a locker.

that´s a very good deal. i would buy it if i were you. then you only have to regear the front axle. or buy a rubicon D44 front axle, that will also fit.

Do I have to regear the front or would that just be an option?

you have to regear the front if you want to drive iin 4H or 4L. if oou drive in 4WD with different axle gears you´ll destroy the diffs, the TC or something else.

i'd say go for it. that axle will probably bring at least 800 to 1000 if thats what you want to spend. I bought a set of them and recently installed the rear. I bought new parking brake cables (did not come with them) a rear drive shaft out of a 2000 tj that had a D44 and a conversion u-joint. Thats it. I am ready to install the front this weekend and all it needs is the DS shortened. Take out your front DS and drive it until you can afford to regear the front or just look for a D30 with the same gears.

Before you get too excited, don't forget they only have 1 feedback, and that locker doesn't have a pump, it's electric. I am not saying don't buy it, cause it's a hell of a deal, but be VERY careful. The old saying what sounds too good to be true usually is can be especially when it comes to ebay. And don't expect any help from them if you do get burned!! But if you do buy it then you need to talk to them and get the front also. It's also a D44 with a locker, and the same gearing!!

One thing about that eBay offer, the bid is still at $200 but it also says the reserve (minimum price) has not yet been met. In other words, you're not gonna get that axle for only $200.

The Rubicon lockers up until 07 were all air actuated. It's the JK's lockers that are now electronically controlled. And as others have stated it does say it's included.

I'm with Jerry on this one however. That thing will skyrocket up in the last couple of hours and will probably sell for somewhere around a grand. Which still isn't a bad price for a rear 44 with it's locker. And who knows what they have as their reserve price.

Yeah I agree with the comments about the reserve not being met. This is probably gonna shoot way up at the last minute. I looked at this sellers feedback rating of 1 and the only other thing he has sold is the front part of the set. It sold for $1500, still not a bad price but too rich for me right now.

If you can get it for around $1k it'd be cool but your other option is do what I did. I got an 8.8 from an Explorer for $75 and I'm gonna build it up and slap it in. It's gonna cost about $500 for everything I need, and that's gonna be a nice rear end.

thanks for straightening that out blkjp. I thought for some reason that all the rubicon models had electric lockers, don't know where I got it. I might have been talking to a buddy at work who has a JK rubi and for about 2 weeks had an 06 rubi and just got confused!!

No problems boss.

I'm the high bidder on this axle right now and I have a 500 max bid in and it still isn't over the reserve price. Would imagine the reserve is at least a grand. I don't need it, but I'm always on the look out for good deals when I come across them to resell.

Bidding so early just tends to jack up the final price and show interest that is usually best left unsaid. I make it a point to NEVER bid on anything on eBay until there is less than 30 seconds left on it, and usually with just 4-5 seconds. eBay's bid allows you to put in a max bid but it will only bid $1 more than the previous bid. If you and someone else both have higher bid limits set in reserve, the computer will go back and forth instantaneously until the time is up or the bidder's limit so it's the luck of the draw who finally wins if there is more than one bidder with that strategy.

Waiting until the final seconds of a bid is a pretty well proven tactic for wining a bid without paying any more than you have to... especially if who you're bidding against isn't watching the bid's final seconds tick down.

Agreed, but if there is an auction with a reserve on it I'll throw a couple of early bids in to see if I can guage what the reserve is. Also in regards to an auction like we are talking about here I knew that axle was going to sell for at least a grand (Ended at 1200) so bidding early wasn't going to drive any extra demand for the auction as it was already there. I bet there was 50 people watching that auction. Now on the brand new shorts I bought last week I didn't bid until 10 seconds left and got them for a quarter. I love ebay.
