Front or rear axle? Im guessing front right wheel since the tjs only have rotors on the front. Jack the front end up and spin the wheel. It should move relatively freely. If not, its probably a stuck caliper. You may try bleeding your brakes first though. I had a stuck caliper yesterday and replaced the calipers on both sides, pads and brake fluid flush/bleed in around 2 hours.

Other symptoms of a stuck caliper include one of the brakes being hotter than the rest (I used an IR thermometer) and you will be able to smell the brake when it heats up. It may also pull to one side when driving/braking.
Calipers/pads are cheap. About 70 bucks will get you everything you need for a complete front brake overhaul.

Im not too sure what that has to so with a locker though.... I hope this answers your question

Unless he has the optional 4wheel disk brake package. I believe it was marketed as the towing package or something. Could have just been the 4wheel disk package.

Ah.... I learned something new. After a bit of research, d44s had the optional package and rubis have 4 wheel disks standard
