rubi lockers. DO AND DO NOT .

well a few questions on my lockers. ( 06 tj stock rubicon)
so i know the lockers are air operated but i have a few questions.

can i use them in short distances? by this i mean my offroad trails often have very tight turns but they are off camber and usually you lift 1 or 2 tires so open diffs cannot go on but they are pretty close from one to another.
so my real question here is can i lock both front and rear and unlock front if i need to turn and back again turn it on? or should i keep both lock at all times?

can i drive the jeep in turns with rear locker engaged? or this might cause wear on the locker it self? or just the tires?

can i turn the lockers on and then go trough water?
or can i go trough water at all?? (without lockers engaged)
where the air pumps breath? can i raise the intake line or something like that?

and also what are the do and do not´s.

Yes to all.

The air pump is usually located in a secure position high up on the jeep mine is on the inner fender under the brake MC.

I turn mine on and off all the time during a day on the trails, always turn of front in a tight turn with the rear engaged

Do the locker bypass mod and your lockers will work in 4HI.

On a stock Rubicon, air compressors are located next to the transfer case, just above the skid plate. About the size of a human fist.

The pumps themselves are low down, on the transfer case skid, but they have breather hoses on the intake that run up... somewhere. Maybe up to the top of the tranny or back to the fuel filler hose; i never bothered to trace them.

What are the pro's and con's of doing this?
I just can think about mudding with lockers on or sand

The ability to not have to engage the rear to engage the front is one. Lockers in 4lo are nice in sand and mud.

Best simple mod Ive done to my Rubi hands down.
