OX Locker Cable length?

How long is your OX locker cable (from your rear axle)? Where is the shifter mounted? With a 4" lift I would like the cable to end up in front of the manual shift levers. What length would be appropriate? Thanks.

I've gotta a narrow "ball park", but the cable is available in lengths that vary by mere inches, so I was just looking for experiences.

Sorry, there are just too many variables inherent in this situation to be able for us who aren't there with you to really give you a valid answer...in my opinion...especially given the clarification you provided...I'd measure a little long were I you just to make sure, but it is possible that you will be returning a cable and trading it for another...just take your time when you measure!

I can't tell you how long you would need them for that, but I can tell you mine are 78" & 84". I can't remember which is which but here is where they mount:



If I were to redo it, I'd probably get to 84" cables so they would be right next to each other.

Me too until I realized I had to open the door to get my arm down there to reach the locker shifter...I'm lazy. I've decided I'm going to mount mine right behind the transmission shifter.
