Swapping in Rubicon axles.

I have been offered a set of Rubicon axles complete with lockers and air pump. How easy will it be to fit into a 99 TJ? Can i just power the lockers direct from a switch? I think i read somewhere about the lockers only working if they were switched in a certain way. All help appreciated.

Hahah x2. its actually really easy just unbolt the old axles and then bolt the new ones on. You will need a buddie axles are heavy. How much did he offer you for both axles?

That's sounds like a lot of work. Let me put them in my jeep and I tell you what's involved in the swap. Lol.
