ez locker

i drive an 89 wrangler with stock axels front and rear and am looking to do some major upgrades.....i drive it everyday and want a cheap locking solution. i have looked at the detroit ezlockers and was wondering that with those installed would it still be reasonable to drive everyday?

Yes, lunchbox lockers are a cheap and easy way to gain some wheeling advantages. Only complaints I've heard is the racheting pops while turning. I would also have to ask what kind of wheeling your into...?

I have a buddy in my Jeep club who is the go-to guy for gear installs and such. It's worth it to have someone experienced do the work and just take notes. Lunchbox lockers are quick to install..hence the "lunchbox" term...being that they can be installed over lunch.

I wouldn't know about the exact tools required, but like I said...definitely find someone who has done it before or go to a pro.

Not sure i'd put one in the rear of a DD. but thats just my preference. Lots of people do.

As for the install, should be pretty easy. check www.rockcrawler.com and check the tech section. theres a few articles on installing lunchbox lockers. i beleive they deal with the powertrax no slip, but all lunchbox loxkers are basically the same.
