If you do not have a rubicon then you have positive traction. That means that the wheel with the least amount of resistance (the one that's spinning and not getting traction) on an axle gets the power. A locker allows both wheels receive power by locking together the axle shafts at the carrier in the middle.jcollins said:I have a jk and am a newbie, just wondering what lockers are and how much they are
Depends on what you want. An selectable locker or an automatic.So whats the most popular type of locker that has least possibility of failure?
Also air lockers will need compressed air to operate, where do the tank and compressor go?
So you put a locker on your d30? I run 35s on my stock TJ sport axles but the only offroading there is to do around here (South Florida) is mostly sugar sand. Theres no mountains and almost 0 hard ground everything is sand. What lockers (if any) do you recommend? I havent really done much off roading in the past but the few places I can find I have so much fun that I want to do more.
In 5 yrs of wheeling and forums I have never head this and know manny who have run auto lockers successfully for years on 4x4's with 35's plus without issue.A lunchbox locker is not recommended for anything over a 33" tire. Ox lockers have a good reputation and arb's do as well. I run a lockrite but im in louisiana mud on 33's.
