Last question before placing an order for my locker

Are Aussie lockers good to drive with on the rear of my 2001 WJ?
It is the 4.0 so I have the Dana 35 in the rear.
I think the transmission is
Quadra trac II. That's what it says at the bottom of my shifter. I just wanna reassure they are good for daily driving.

Aussie's are great lockers, but are not the most street friendly considering the many other choices available for the D35. It your WJ sees little trail time, I would look to something other than a lunchbox style locker.

My 2 cents: Don't put an auto locker in the rear of your primary driver.

The ratcheting, clunking, and clicking get old. Fast.

I said to avoid a lunchbox for a mainly DD. Aussie, Spartan is lunchbox style. I used to run a true trac in my d30 (mechanical LSD) and it was great. Others can comment on Eaton, etc.. for the rear.

Something selectable, a limited slip style, or leave it open would be my recommendation.

This all doesn't account for my aversion to investing any cash into a 35 rear end.

My wj is not a daily driver it gets trail use and takes the bikes when we do mountain bike trips and the spartan locker is annoying if I drove the ole jeep more than a time or two a month it'd be gone by now. It works great off road though

I have a spartan in my xj front d30. It is great off road, actually fantastic but on street it clicks on tight turns in two wheel drive. Nv242 t case. Easy to install too.

My WJ is all time 4wd so it makes it more difficult to find something that's not selectable.


Any stories on these?
