Aussie Lockers ???

Has anyone installed the Aussie Lockers on a ZJ. I have a 98 GC with the v8 and all time 4wd. The site said "It is not possible to install the locker in the front differential of permanent constant 4WD vehicles without installing free-wheeling hubs, ". Does this make sense? Any help wwould be appreciated

Locking the rear axle is more effective than locking the front axle anyways. Just lock the rear and drive it places you never dreamed possible.

it is possible but not smart with cv axle shafts and a cv DS. It will also have bad road manners since the locker will lock up around corners.

an aussie locker only locks when it has power going to is so in your situation you would be constantly driving on pavement with a locked locker BIG NO NO ( hints the free spinning hubbs, unlock the front for street driving)

It's probably cheaper to put the Aussie in the rear 44a and put a selectable in the front. Unless you're really into serious crawling, a locker in the rear will get you everywhere you want to go.
