Lockers?

What type of lockers is better? The air lockers (quite expensive) or the electric lockers(not as costly)? I have a 94 wrangler and plain on putting some money into it but also trying to get the cheaper way out since it's also my everyday driver

Lunchbox lockers are the cheapest and easiest but your factory axles won't like any locker with tires larger than 31s.

throw an aussie in the front, holds up to 35s pretty well. dont do anything in the rear till you get rid of the 35

I have 33s on it now but after a motor swap I plain on going to 35s. But was hoping to keep the axles since I'm not using it as a rock crawler

I had a 2003 wrangler x, Aussie's F&R with 35s for 3 years, wheeled hard and never broke an axle shaft or did anything major. It all depends on how you wheel and if you like a lot of skinny pedal. I wheeled mine almost every weekend. I would say air lockers. swap in an 8.8 axle and be done.

I like to take the trails and some mud (just depends if the top is on) but the trails we ride have some ruts and when I get on them I usually only have 2 tires on the ground one in the front and one in the back and I just wind up siting and spinning. I'll stick with the stock axles and when or if I snap one I'll buy a better after market one
