Cool dana 44

Okay so i built up my jeep unlimited with a 3 inch lift 35 inch tires and a rear dana 44 axle. Now its time for me to start doing a little offroading and it has the dana 30 axle in the front. My problem is how do I setup the electric lockers? How do I set it up so its like the rubicon to have the eltric lockers?

First of all you have to get them installed as only the Rubicon comes with e lockers. A good product is Eaton e lockers. Up here in Canada it costs between $4 to $5k for parts and labor to do front and rear Eaton e lockers at a reputable garage that has experience with such installs and well they are in your differentials you should get your gears swapped out to 4.56's if you plan on off roading alot with 35's as you don't want to pay for the labor twice. Remember every JK has BLD's (brake lock differentials) as part of the traction control system and they help a great deal by applying the brakes to the wheel without traction allowing the other wheel with traction to spin. Not as smooth as mechanical lockers but will get you out of many situations that older Jeeps without traction control would need lockers to do.

I'm assuming you have the factory 3.21 gears? or did you opt for the optional 3.73's? if you have the 3.73's 35's may be livable for a while.

However I do not think that BLD works when you are in low range 4wd.

I also recommend doing the E-Lockers and the gear change at the same time. With the gearing change I would recommend a master install kit each axle as well. The 4.56 gears will work well with the 35 inch tires 0n a 2012 and newer JK Unlimited. A 2007-2011 would benefit with a 4.88 ratio.

Traction control is disengaged in 4L but BLD is left on and is of great assitance in 4L.
