Lunchbox or Detriot Locker
Hi All, I'm a new tj owner in here, and need your wise-ness. I was told my 01 had either a lunchbox or Detroit locker in my rear. Is there a way to tell without tearing it apart. The former owner said it had 456 gear front and rear. Is this enough info to figure this out. Thank

It is possible that it could be "both". Detroit makes a full case locker as well as a lunchbox locker. The only way to really determine what your jeep has is to pull the diff cover off. If you decide to do this (which is a very simple task) here are pictures of what to look for.

This is a Detroit EZ locker. It is Detroit's lunchbox. Just about every lunchbox will look the same.

This is the Detroit Softlocker...their full case locker.

Pray you have the well behaved/strong/bulletproof Detroit Locker and not the EZ-Locker. :)
