A locker for my 8.8 is on my short list. It's 4:10ed with the limited slip carrier.
What is everyone else running and what did yall pay (ballpark figures)? I don't want to run an autolocker as my jeep sees pavement use. Probably an ARB, Ox or an electric locker. Or is there something else that I should consider?
I'm running a Aussie in the front D30.
Let me know your thoughts?
Here is a picture of my jeep... Just thought I would throw that in.
If you are looking for a selectable locker be prepared to spend $500 and up. If you get the ARB you'll have to buy the pump too. I've heard good and bad about all of them plus I've only ran automatic lockers so I can't really say. If it was me I'd run a Lock-right or Aussie in the rear. If I had the dough to spend I'd probably go with an ARB.
Oh and the $500 and up is just for the locker not the install kit or cost to set it up unless you know how to do it.
you will need to get a new carrier. the factory carrier with ls will not work with a locker...that being said i would go aussie. i have a 8.8 in my garage and thats what i will be using. iwill be installing a selectabel in the front for steering ease, ox probably
My vote would be for a ARB too.
I run one in the front and love it. For the compressor I would (and have) set up a on board air system and forget about the ARB compressor.
Even though alot of places throw it in for free.
It will replace your stock carrier so no worries there.
93 YJ SOA 2" springs front, XJ springs rear w/main leaf added, High pinon 9 inch rear detroit locker front Dana 44 ARB 4.56 Gears, 36 inch Irok tires too much to list. www.mijc.org
What about an Eaton Locker? Anybody running one of those?
Yea i had one in my 8.8. I loved it. No compressor to worry about. No air lines, no stupid o rings. I think that is the best choice out there for a selectable. It worked amazing. You wont be disapointed with it.
