jeremyx28 I just got home from my first night time trail ride with my newly locked front. There were a couple others on the trail in front of me, and I had to keep waiting for them to back up and try to find new lines cause they kept spinning out. FYI, they were in pickups. I plowed right thru everything without a problem. I am sooooooo impressed with the locker, what a difference! I was up and over everything, rocks, downed trees, mud.....no problems. What a fun night. You almost feel invincible with the locker on the trails.

Gunz n tractorz Hhhhmmmmmm. Lots to think about as someone said in prev post rustys offroad has the lock right locker on sale for d35 for $210 and it's usually $310 just saw the good deal and not sure what to do? It is a dd and will see mud dirt and rocks but nothing super major.

OverkillYJ For a daily driver I would suggest a posi rear and locked front, much better road manners. If you can afford a selectable locker for the rear that is ideal, and dont waste the time or money on the D35. I have a solid axle upfront with a Spartan and get occasional unloading and can hear it when on pavement turning tight. Nothing beats it offroad though. I have leaned not to turn the wheel all the way when turning now on pavement. One thing for sure though is that if I did not swap in a solid axle it would not even be noticeable on road.

When I had General All terrain 31's my buddies with 32" and 33" offroad tires could not keep up at all unless it was just horrible mud in which case my AT's would get packed.

GoldenSahara00 Locker the stronger axle, rear first if you can. Although I do enjoy the front locker and feel you can do more with a front locker if you know what you're doing, and can capitalize on drive skill much more.

Gunz n tractorz Any preference to put locker in front or rear and why?
05-23-2013 06:49 AM
indirocz28 Thats a good deal!
I have used Aussie in the past, and have friends that run lock-rites. They are essentially the same thing.

jeremyx28 I got my lock rite on sale from rustys for $210. I thought at that price I couldn't pass it up. I was going to wait on getting a locker till next year but for 200 bucks I jumped on it lol.

Nubby55 nope my Spartan was on sale, that's why I got it.

Putting the locker itself in is pretty self explanatory, just follow the directions and use some grease to hold it all together. I just went for a quick test drive up this short trail that's not really that difficult to begin with, but I'll tell you my jeep ran up that hill when it usually jogs. I can't wait till this weekend when I can go really try the locker out on some more intense terrain.
What kind of locker did you get? I was looking to do this myself

Good job on doing it yourself, even though you needed a little help. Working on your own jeep is how you learn and now your jeep is more capable because of it.

That's what I found with the Aussie locker I put in a few weeks ago. Not noticeable on road, but amazing off road. I don't have to hit the skinny pedal near as much.

indirocz28 When in 2wd you will not notice the front locker, however in 4wd when turning you should hear the locker ratcheting.

theYeti How was it on the road? Automatic locker? Could you hear it?
