I know of some people that consider lockers to be cheaters. Generally its from guys that don't have lockers and need to be winched out.

What's the range for cost to add ARB lockers to a JK Sport? Great video!

Its a bigger job than you may think- chances are you have Dana 30 up front, so a new axle up front will be your first order of business. Then you'll need to install either e-lockers or air-lockers, which will require an onboard air source of some source.

All in, definitely will set you back a few grand.

You'll find a lot of different opinions on this one, and some will say that air lockers are superior to the E-lockers that come standard on a Rubicon. Someone correct me if Im wrong, but all JK rubicons come standard with the e-lockers and e-swaybar disco, so for you, its more a matter of picking what year you want.

That said, Im more of a weekend warrior and my rig is also my ride, and the e-lockers have served me VERY well off road and have gotten me up and over some obstacles that some other rigs couldnt make without lockers.

Good one guys!

But really, you'd have to be 40 to get the pop culture references.

Sneakers?
Jenny 867-5309?
Hal? (Will I dream?) - forgot that one

Ol' Doc must be in the Class of 1985 :P

That was an AWESOME vid!

Great job...

I didn't need a Rubicon or lockers because I've already perfected the hand brake technique.


Was never a fan of Magnum PI...but loved the theme song. What have been happy with music from Hawaii Five 0, The Fall Guy, The Greatest American Hero, or CHiPs. And even after all of these years....I still don't understand 2001...(nor Dune for that matter).

Pizza delivery guy and hot chick in tight white shirt...

This did NOT escalate in the manner in which the 80's prepared me for.

All depends on what kind of trails you run I guess.


As allways I enjoyed the kind of humor that is in these videos.

Cool video, but what happened to Jenny Naylor from the old Teraflex videos? She was awesome.
