XJ Knight The TJ/LJ Rubi's had them... The JK's do not

I'm guessing it isn't as easy to mod the JK Rubi Lockers to operate in 4HI like you can do one the TJ/LJ's?

KSCRUDE Man that's deep snow. So glad it missed us here in the land of OZ. Does the lockers only work in 4 low. Just wondering. If so if you are in 4 hi are you just running with open diffs. One reason that I ordered a sahara is I do most of my four wheeling in 4 high, and you can get the rear trac loc which works at all speeds I assume. Or does the rubi have a rear trac loc also. I didn't see it one the rubi build sheet. I am sure some of you rubi wizards can set me straight. Thanks!

chef1231 I went in in 4 HI then after I got stuck I went into 4 LO locked up rear & front. Too much fun I've been at it all day. I did find out the hard way that when your tires get packed with snow the brakes dont work really well. lol

CapptainObvious was the rear locked?

millfire517 Nice!!

daedalus Looks like fun. Were you in 4HI or 4LO? From the speed that your tires are spinning I would guess 4HI.

Lowelife Gotta love playing in the snow!

BlackMountain lol nice! looks like you had a bit of trouble to get going there but you plowed right through that stuff.

NWI snow VS. my Rubicon W/ Video

So as some of you know I work at a Jeep dealer and got to work today to find just a ton of snow. I went out playing in it and everyone says their two cents but... Nothing really stops this thing. FYI it is my own Jeep and not one of the dealerships just in case anyone was going to ask. If I had to guess I'd say about 3 ft of snow and with drifts who knows.

My video guy could have been better but.. You lose me a little in the back of the lot, I hit a huge drift trying to turn around and it took me a minute to get it out.
