Rear Locker for YJ w/3.07 rear

I am looking for some input about a locker for a 3.07 rear. This is my daily driver with some offroading on the weekend. Am I going to have to change my gearing to get a good locker?

No, you gearing doesn't really limit locker choice at all. If you're looking to go as cheap as possible, can't be the Powertrax Lockrights, but they can be a little harsh on the road. Powertrax No-Slip adds more street friendly features but tags about $100 on the price. Both of these can be installed by the average weekend mechanic.

On the expensive side you can go with a selectable locker like and ARB or an OX. These are great because you can turn them on and off, and therefor be uneffected on the street. If you wanna spend the money, they're worth it. But you'll also have to get a shop to install em, as resetting the gears is required.

Like the rice burner dude says, no ya don't "have to" change gears. But if you select a locker like the Detroit, ARB or Ox, you're gonna have to pay to have the gears setup anyway, so ya might as well upgrade is usually the consensus. And really, I had them 3.07s once too. Going to 4.10s felt like I had finally released the parking break.

If you're not planning on doing gears for awhile, then ya should probably do a lunchbox style locker, realizing it won't last forever. I wouldn't do the full carrier style locker if you're not doing gears yet because when you do change the gears, your locker for the 3.07s won't work with the deeper gearset and you'll be buying another locker.

I've never referred to you by your nickname since you been here. And been getting progressively worse. 'Bout damn time you acknowledge one.

Once again Osburn speaks the good word. Best to do the gear and locker mod at the same time. I was recently in your shoes, trying to decide which locker to go with for the daily driver. I also had the 3.07's. Anyway, since I someday plan to do an axle swap, I opted to not go with the golden ARB's. I'm very happy with my 4.10's and a Detroit Truetrach in the rear. I left the front open after several weeks of contemplation. Someday, when I have another ride to work, I'll be fully locked.
