I've been searching around the forum, and can't seem to find a thread on this. Sorry if i missed. What I'm wondering is, can I take the axles and hubs (automatic locking I assume) out of a donor ZJ and put them in my 5.2 (formerly full time). I can't afford the crazy expensive Warn conversion hub kit right now. The Jeep I bought for parts has a newly rebuilt front end, so the axles are going in mine anyway. Just hoping the hub locks fit, too.
'95 ZJ Flowmaster 44, Edlebrock Headers, Hi Flow Cat. 4" Rough Country lift, 32x11.5 BFG AT.
Zjs did not have locking hubs of any kind. The only way to make them locking is the warn kit.

So even ZJ's with select trac had the front axles engaged at all times? Huh...Guess i'll be saving up the cash for Warn's. Thanks guys.
yep the axle and DS are turning all the time. Just not connected to the powertrain if in 2wd mode of the selectrac tc
