Detroit lockers

As a new jeep owner, just wondering what it would take to switch Detroit locker front to selrctable or none at all?

Thanks for any help

You'd be swapping one carrier (the Detroit Locker) for another carrier whether it's a full-carrier selectable locker like an ARB Air Locker or an open differential carrier. Not a difficult swap but you would have to know how to adjust the backlash between the ring & pinion gears since you'd be changing the carrier.
