Ibuildembig the only ones that will engage that I know of for a fact if your already stuck and cannot spin the diff to get it to engage are an arb and an electric locker. Everythign else your gonna have to be able to turn the diff over a little so it can engage and sometimes thats not always the case. I personally like the ARBs best.

What about Detroit? Air/electric/or cable?

But the axle wont be put on the Jeep until I go to regear and lock her out.

I have never used an Ox locker, but everyone I know of has used Ox switched to another locker.

D44 housings come in two types, Rubi lockers, and aftermarket. I don't know what the difference is, but there is a difference. Could just be the diff cover.

4Jeepn Make sure to remove the cover and look inside the diff for damage to gears etc. Seems odd they would remove the locker.

dana 44 upgrade question?

I have found this Dana 44 Rubicon front axle for Jeep jk's. It has 4.10 gears with no locker witch is what I want. I plan to 4.88 gears with ox lockers front and rear. My question is even tho it says Rubicon front axle, will it still fit under my sport? Would I have to do any special mods to the axle or the Jeep, or should it just pop right into place?
