I just bought an 05' Rubicon Dana 44 and in the process of cleaning and painting it. How do I check to see if the air locker is working without installing it on the Jeep. Thanks

Need air supply to lock it and then rotate and see what happens.

You can use the squeeze bulb from a sphygmomanometer (blood pressure cuff) to actuate the lock!

Jerry, would an aftermarket compressor, like say the ARB unit, be compatiable with stock rubi axles?
No, not at all. Most air compressors like from ARB put out close to 100 psi and Rubicon lockers can only take 5 psi. Technically you could run something like an ARB compressor but you would have to add a good quality air pressure regulator to reduce its air pressure down to 5 psi.
