Front locker ?

Going to be installing a front locker in my YJ and also my wife's TJ. Question is, from reading the adds in Quadratrac and the ones I am seeing recommend the lockout hub conversion kit. Any truth to this or are they just wanting to sale more stuff?

Just want to sell more stuff. Most don't run them. Not sure if your thinking auto or selectable lockers. Auto go with a Aussie and IMO ARB makes the best selectable locker

XJ... That is exactly what I was thinking. Just trying to sell more stuff. And you are correct. I was thinking of either the Aussie or ARB or maybe even the Eaton electric locker.

Depends on your budget, if you can go air or e locker I'd go that way but dont see a need for manual lock outs. Unfortunately my jeep was built on a tight budget so I got the Aussie, but I couldn't be happier with it. Best $250 upgrade so far.

The wife's jeep has a Detroit truelock in the rear now. So I will probably do an Aussie up front on her's. She does not do near the stuff I do in mine right now. But that can all change as she gets more seat time.
On mine I have an 8.8 with 4.56 and ARB already set up just waiting on me to get the time(have to fix my mom's TJ next) to get it put in and when I do I will put the ARB in the front of mine.

if you will see snow on the roads, go with a selectable.. if its not a worry get a full time. Its hard to steer with the full time on snow covered roads at speed.
