Dana 44

Hi everyone, I recently purchased a Dana 44 rear axle out of a rubicon and it arrived today. I won't be doing the swap for a little while but I'm just curious how I'm going to hook up the locker. It has the pump and everything so I'm thinkin all I'll have to do is run a switch to the inside of my jeep. If anyone has done this or knows anything about it, let me know what I need to do! Thanks!

It's possible, but the pump wiring is odd IIRC.

This is what I found when setting up mine. I just added relays for the switching.

I probably should have mentioned that it came with the pump and the harness. From what I understand I don't need to buy a factory wiring harness in order for the locker to work? I can just run new wires and my own switch?

1600 with shipping. I'm doing the swap myself so I won't be paying a shop to install it
