cj7 with non locking front axle?

picking up a 7 wednesday but it doesn't have a locking hub on the front axle they stay locked all the time but not a quadra-trac setup, it does have 4wheel drive with a dana 20 tcase and 3 speed t18 or 150...

I know 5's really well but not 7's any ideas?

There's no difference in front axles comparing a 5 to a 7. Lockout hubs were an option, so some of them did leave the factory with drive flanges. The axle otherwise is the same. Just need to swap the drive flanges to a locking hub. Keep the drive flanges in your rig if you wheel it. They make good trail spares if a lockout breaks while wheeling.

Drive flanges are very popular with the mudding crowd. Nothing to break when really putting it to it.

Ive seen (and have) drive flanges for the 6 bolt hubs, but has anyone ever seen them for the 5 bolt set ups? 81 to 86...

Any rig that came with quadratrac had drive flanges.
