And I had the axle pinion angle adjusted so I didn't have to do any of that. Professionally installed, guaranteed, and warranted. I do love spending money. Going to see Stan tomorrow. Lock her up. Lol

Well for the 8.8 swap guy that's all in the brackets when you swap it in and where their position on the axle tube is when they are burned on. Which locker are you going with? (Assuming ARB)

Assume nothing. Aussies or Spartans. Front and Rear for less than a single ARB.

Does your LJ have a factory rear limited slip? Most sahara models came with it.

A trac-loc needs a carrier change. you can't put in a lunchbox in one. Unless there is one i am not aware of.

Right on Bob, lunch box lockers only fit into open carriers.

Actually, I already knew that about the LSD Carrier. But I had a couple of guys saying it could be done. And I'm sure it can. For the right punt of $$$. So, now it's a Selectable Locker. And probably only one for now. GRRR!!!

You can't go wrong with an ARB..... plus you could have on board air. And having 3 tires spinning at all times is better than just 2. Think about it this way... youre saving your front axle from more abuse lol

Can't afford an ARB right now. I'm leaning towards Detroit, or Eaton. And probably lock the rear first. That's where I get the most wheel spin anyways. I don't know. Stan and I will discuss it tomorrow.

When both diffs are open, always lock the rear first

Then save up longer and get what you won't so you want have to spend money on more gear oil. And it doesn't have to come apart for the locker, and then the shafts, and then the gears.

Yeah, I'm not real good at saving money. Trust me. I live payday to payday. And when I have a better than average payday, I splurge. Lol.

So yeah, I better do this now. Lol
