I just got my Procal and the manual does have a setting to turn it off. "setting pressure to zero will disable the system for diagnostic purposes"

On another note, I have my stock tires and wheels listed on Craigslist. A buyer wants to come pick them up tomorrow. It just occurred to me that the stock wheels still have the air pressure sensors in them. Do I need these or will the Procal turn off that feature all together? I really don't care if the system is operational but I do not want any kind of "idiot" lights on in the dash. Anyone have experience with these?
I would get your sensors out. It won't take long or cost to much. Chances are the buyer won't be able to use them anyway. Unless he has. 2013. I would be interested in them as a second set for my other set of wheels of you don't have any interest in them.

Thanks for the quick reply. I needed that cause the buyer was in a hurry and frankly I wanted to get rid of them.

Yeah, he has a 2013 and wanted the sensors. No biggie for me, I wouldn't have used them anyway.

Thanks, David M

With the recent warm weather here in Central Texas, I took advantage and sprayed my poison spyder bumper, skid, and brawler rockers. I removed the light surface rust with an air angle grinder. Cleaned them up with M.E.K. and sprayed with Rustoleum bed liner that comes in a rattle can.

I got all the synergey steering along with the JKS front and rear adjustable track bars installed. I mounted the tires and cycled the axle articulation to verify no tire rub at full bump. A couple of spy shots of where I think it will sit. The pictures below are withOUT springs and shocks. I still think this will be very close to where the final stance will be...

OK...Just read some very discouraging news on another forum that could effect my build. There have been several cases of 2012/13 JK's with (auto transmission only) that are having issues when auto lockers such as a Detroit are used. The jeeps are going into limp mode. There is not a lot of information regarding this topic that I have found. At best, results are inconclusive. I have spoke with Dave @ Northridge who I purchased the axle from and even called and talked to Steve @ Dynatrac. Both had the same answer, which was that they were unsure if I would have problems. It is a certainty that in the rear there would be problems. However, in the front may not be an issue. My concern is that I on occasion do some beach driving. I'm affraid in 4 hi that I would have similar issues.

I am leaning toward calling David @ Northridge and see if he is willing to swap my Detroit for an ARB if I pay the differance in price. After having my Jeep down for so long already I would hate to have issues after the fact.

I was reading some of those also and seemed like some of them have tired everything and been working it for a while to no avail. If you can pull off a switch to an ARB then you don't have to worry. With the ARB in back you're already running a compressor, manifold and switches.

Yeah, as much as I hate to tear into the new ProRock to swap lockers. I think that is the smart play here. I have made this request to David @ Northridge and waiting to hear back from him. Damn, I was getting so close!

I don't think you would've cared for the Detroit in the rear anyway. The ARB is the best option back there, especially on the road. Up front, the Detroit is a fantastic choice.

The Detroit is in the front, for now. I have an ARB in the rear.

The more I think about this...I seem to remember Gerald @ Savvy Offroad build up his '12 JKUR. I believe he used a Detroit locker in the front axle as well and am fairly certain it was an auto transmission too. I never heard of his rig having any issues what so ever. I am going to call him and seek his opinion on the matter. More to follow...

Imped,
I don't believe I ever formally thanked you for all your tips, pointers, suggestions in helping me properly set up the control arms. I really appreciate that!

So I spoke with Gerald and he confirmed that his 2012 is an automatic transmission and he is also running a Detroit locker in the front without any problems. With this, I have decided to go ahead stick with the Detroit in my ProRock. If for whatever reason I do have a problem David @ Northridge has agreed to swap lockers for an ARB. I hope it doesn't come to that for everyones sake.

On another note I did get the Poison Spyder rock brawler sliders installed. Very happy with how they look. I forgot my camera at work today so I will get some pictures up tomorrow. I started the process on the Or-Fab spare tire carrier but this one will go into the weekend. I have already installed one on my last JK. At that time I told myself, I never want to do that again. But, Here I am...IMO you just can't beat the quality, fit, and function of it. Best carrier out there IMO just a pain in the *** to install.

Still hopeful that my shocks will be in tomorrow so I can button up the suspension. Dare I say I'm starting to see light at the end of the tunnel...
