You can cause locker issues if you have different tires on the same axle, but that's on the street. If you need to use the spare to get off the trail, run it.

What size is your spare???? If it's not the same size as the other 4 tires, he is right. Having a different size spare is a no no and should only be done in an emergency. I know on the muscle cars I play with, a different size tire on the drive axle will burn up the clutches in the posi and I'd guess it would be hard on parts and make handling dangerous in you jeep. If its the same size and just worn out, you will be fine with it.

My spare is the same size, 33x12.50 but just worn out.
Luckily I have selectable lockers, so controlling on/off is easy. Will just keep the locker on that axle off while using the spare, which I hope is never.
The best I can do is $225(+tax) unmounted on a spare MT/R. So I'll keep looking for a bit. With luck...the right deal will present itself.

So...
I blew the fan controller, that fancy DCC controller for the Taurus fan.
He fixed it. No biggie other than the down time and even then he(DCC) sent me a courtesy loaner controller for the 2 weeks it took to repair mine. Which to be fair is 4 years old.
This brings up a chance to add a on/off switch to the fan. For water crossings.
How useful is that going to be to me? The ability to turn off the electric fan.
Knowing 99% of my wheeling is Colorado/Utah. And I drive a not at all deep water resistant vehicle.

I'm really glad to see that Brian is taking care of your controller after 4 years. Mine is running strong after 5+

For the on/off switch, I would get a super high amperage switch (maybe a relay setup?) and put it on the main lead. I put one on the yellow (switched) lead, and I'm not sure it completely cuts it off. Amp draw is lower when I switch it off though.

I cross water just as much as you, maybe less. I think my deepest water crossings over the past 5 years were Jenny Creek and Coney Flats. Coney is the only one I would have even thought of turning off the fan.

So disconnecting the yellow wire doesn't shut off the fan?
Not gonna worry much about it then. Not important enough to spend and mod.
Been to Jenny creek this year and it isn;t even going to get the hub caps wet.
I'll pass on that mod then.
I just rebuilt the transfer case and REMOVED the 2lo shift fork for the stock one. I never used it and even more so, found the indent hard to find and would find it by accident more often than not. That was an expensive and major pain.
Shhh...I am also sorta looking for a real small air compressor to run the lockers so I don't need to fire up that fancy belt driven oba for a simple locker engagement. Not sure of the value in it though, a small ARB compressor, I mean SMALL, is a couple hun.

Tom is the 2 lo for a NP231? If so what are your plans for it?

There's a distinct possibility that while I think I got the high-ish end switch from Advance that it may be not completely severing the circuit and sending enough current to turn on the controller, but still keeping it below the 2 amps that it was eating.

My level of electrical knowledge is nowhere near enough to be sure.

Shaun- I will let you know if it is no longer wanted. It came from my 231-j with a tera low and sye, it came from Advanced adapters with the sye, I think. Used only when I kind of made a point of doing so. I could see a use for it if you have an auto or lunch box locker in front and you need to remove the locker from the system, otherwise...
Jim- the yellow wire is the exciter wire, it really shouldn't carry much power, just sense the power supply for a switched/unswitched thing.

I have a Spartan that I need to install in the front, so that would be perfect.

Yep - that's the one I was talking about. It doesn't carry much amperage by itself, but it does perform the switching for the relay - which applies power to the main power lead, which appears to draw 2.5a + at idle.

Nevermind, look like they are still stickied, just not being identified as such.

I think the separator line that we had is gone. Not sure why. I'll see if there's any chatter in the mod section
