My buddy has a 92 or 93 YJ. He's changed out about everything possible, but the latest was the front axels (he broke one). He runs a locker up front, either a tru track or detroit not exactly sure. In this latest 'repair' he did away with the electric disconnect on the front right of the axel, so that right axel is now solid and does not disconnect.
Problem now is when you go to flat tow, when the tow rig turns left, the jeep wants to go straight, which results in it actually turning right a bit then the tires dragging until the tow rig straightens up. Obviously not a good thing. (I was riding in the jeep during this 'trial run'.) We also tried it with the driveshaft disconnected up front, but did the same thing.
Although the answer seems obvious to me, i could be wrong. Since the front axel has a locker and the factory disconnect is not there any longer, both wheels turning at same speed want to go straight.
If that's the correct assumption, i would think the only options are to put in an air locker if he does not want to replace the axels again?
to put locking hubs on, would probably have to change out axels again?
any other ideas (not counting trailering - that one's a no brainer but he does not like all the added work involved, neither do i)
