Axle questions

DJRS Next Gen. Dana 30 Solid Front Axle
DMEP 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio
DRZS Next Gen. Dana 44 HD Rear Axle
DS7S Conventional Differential Frt Axle
DS8S Conventional Differential Rear Axle

This is what my build sheet tells me about my axles. Can I assume I do not have limited slip? (If that is the correct terminology.)
I know my TJ had limited slip rear axle. (again may be using wrong terminology) but it was called out on the window sticker.

Second Part of the question: I have heard some about lockers. Pros and cons for each type Air, mecahnical, and ones like the ausie.
What are some thoughts for an every day driver that may not see any heavy off road use. mostly sand and hopefull some trail riding.

I was really hoping a Rubicon would be my next purcahse but an early demise of my TJ forced me to compromise.
Thanks
Perry

Would say LS I believe.

You have to request LS. Not standard.

Thanks, I figured as much. As I wrote, I had to comromise an buy used and not the rubicon I had been saving for. I hope to upgrade as I move along. Just not all that knowlogable.

You can't go wrong with either. I have an '07 Base model JKU that I am slowly building out. It's a blast to wheel as is. I do have a lift and MTRs though.

Limited slip is called Trac-Lok on the JK. If you mostly drive on the street stay away from the mechanical lockers like the Detroit. It makes on street handling difficult. Make sure they are selectable.
