Wanting to run front and rear lockers. Best option?

2000 WJ 4.7 with Quadradrive. Need front and rear lockers. I'm hearing I need to swap to a 242 or a 231? What are my best options. Those who have actually put lockers in, specifically up front, what have you done?

Yep. Transfer case is a 'nice to have'. But for lockers, you need to swap your carriers and axle shafts, front and rear.

I had a spartan locker in the front of my XJ. It was excellent off road, but clicked a lot on the street. Easy to install and very strong.

Detroit true-trac on front of my WJ. Very aggressive limited slip, and great on the street. But it is not a locker. Only slightly better performance than a quadradrive vari-lok.

Correct! You can do it but it costs a LOT more!
