if ARB's are to much money for you (like they are for me) and you are looking to get a set of lockers, have you thought about getting a set of aussie lockers or powertrax lockers!? these lockers dont require a compressor or drilling into your diff, they cost roughly 300 bucks shipped, and they are awesome. in my opinion, aussie lockers are the single most cost effective off road mod you can make.

Omar Brannstrom Hi

Just want to mention that all wranglers when engaged in 4WD has a "difflock" between the rear axel and the front axel. That is why we should not drive in 4WD on asphalt.

Vehicles with permanent 4WD sometimes lacks the possibility to lock the middle "difflock" so then the Wrangler in 4WD is better that gets a stiff connection in 4WD to the rear and front axle.

So for instance in a landrover that has permanent 4wd (do not have 2WD) can drive it whit oppen middle diff on asphalt and lock it in terrain if neaded. Wranglers are always locked in 4WD.

So Landrovers for instance do not have front or rear lockers but some have tractioncontrol like BLD.

Hope You understood me, bad english

Omar Brannstrom Hi

I have a Suzuki Jimny and it has oppen diff and lacks traction control like BLD that Wrangler JK has. I am waiting for my sahara 2012 with BLD

A suzuki Jimny is very similar with the wrangler Tj that also lacks tractioncontrol

I found this movie that shows how much better it goes If You but air lockers to a jimny.

Difficult to find good demonstration videos with the Wrangler JK.

Omar Brannstrom Hi

Here You can se a difference between vehicle with lockers and vehicle without lockers, read the text under the film at Youtube

Jeep Wrangler JK - Rubicon vs Sahara - YouTube

Air Locker vs LSD vs Traction Control

I think it is uploaded by ARB or sponsored and want to sell Air lockers, but I think it is correct.

In the real world, there aren't all that many opportunities to lock your diffs.
But when you need it, when push comes to shove, there's no better traction-aiding device. When BLD and LSD don't get you up the hill, you get out and winch or you lock your diffs.

Yep, on page 16 it is listed in the paragraph about the Sahara.

However, scroll down to page 25 for the chart of standard/optional equipment, lockers are only listed for the Rubicon.

So...

KSCRUDE God if I would of known my sahara had lockers I would of not had to spend that $900 for the front eaton elocker! Never did see the switch though.

Im sure some of you people have those. Thats where I first seen and read about it.

Do I need to take a picture of the Sahara page in the 2009 Wrangler brochure to get any of you to believe this?

Somone go find a 2009 Wrangler brochure and look at this.

If not I will take a picture of that page and post it here.
I believe it. But, it doesn't matter. There is always a disclaimer regarding printed material, etc. Mistakes happen in fliers/brochures. Only Rubicons have them and that's basically it. As always, see your dealer for details.

Omar Brannstrom Hi

Here is a Wrangler LJ and a Wrangler TJ with open diff and lacks BLD. The JK has BLD and reaches the topp.

See this movie here, about 7mb, takes some time to download it. I found it on a other forum, his name is DeepSky and You can search after the thread.

So whats the deal with that. Could Jeep have made a HUGE misprint?

thanks in advacne

It wouldn't be the first time that a company puts out a brochure that leads you to believe something that isn't true. I'm with daggo, seeing something questionable in print doesn't make it so. The jeep website says that lockers are not standard on a Sahara. I would tend to go with that.
