i just want the 242 cause here in utah we get very odd storms where it will leave 3 feet of snow you are driving through then none at all then random snow drifts and such and its generally just a PITA to put it in and out of 4hi every 30 seconds (when you need it here you NEED it and when you dont you REALLY dont... it sucks)

the fulltime 4 wheel would just be a good amenity to have basically, but i might just stick with what i got and put in an aussie.

so if i do get the 242 i'd want a selectable instead of the aussie is that what you are tryin to say?

I mean it's totally up to you. Ideally a front selectable is best for 4wd on pavement, but an autolocker up front is doable. Just familiarize yourself on how it handles and decide what your limits are. I don't mind my Aussie at all, but I am willing to put up with the cons. Someday if I ever get the extra money I would invest in a front selectable. If you have the money, get a selectable.

I see what you're talking about with all the random snow here and there, but the 231 is a shift on the fly tcase. Wouldn't you just want to engage 4wd when you really needed it instead of having it always engaged with the 242? It'll save you some gas and less wear on your drivetrain not to mention the time and cost to do a 242 swap haha

READ READ READ then ASK

So i have been reading a lot about the Aussie locker and now I'll ask. I got a deal on a new Aussie locker for my Dyna 30 front for my 97 TJ. The guy will install it free if i buy it from him, yes its new, he was going to install in his and has decided to go a different way. it is the correct AL part#. He is a real good mechanic and he'll let me watch/help, so i still get the hands on experience.
My question is... i have an open rear Dana 35 and am "going to" install a 8.8 lmt slip w disc's as soon as i can find a deal on one (read a lot about that too). Is this OK to do? locked up front and open rear?

thanks in advance

Thanks to the interstate highway system... most people don't see nut'n in the USA.

yes, it's perfectly fine. many people only lock the front d30 until they swap out the crap d35 in the rear.

thanks!

**Update FYI and thanks to the Aussie Locker Tech request reply:
"Yes you can do such an installation. We sell more Dana 30 lockers than any other model and that means that many of them go into Jeeps with the same set up you have."

I have been looking into purchasing a locker for my D30 recently and the Aussie is definately on the list... quick question and this might be a stupid one or I might have missed it... but can you use any after market diff cover with the Aussie? I have a Riddler D30 cover currently.

Hello.
Yesterday I installed and tested the Aussie for some 1 or 2 miles on pavement most of time to go to the fuel station.
In 2wd the front locker is non visible, I hear the front diff clicking.
When in put the 4wd the front locker gets locked automatically, but when I put again the 2wd the front locker is still locked for some few of meters(100m for example) But if I stop and engage the reverse I hear a click and the locker disengages. Is this normal?

The Wrangler's 4x4 system doesn't usually disengage 4x4 immediately after you slide the lever back into 2wd, it normally takes a few seconds. So it's not the locker causing it, it's the transfer case itself. Back off on the accelerator pedal to take the pressure off the gears inside the transfer case allow it to slip back into 2wd more easily. Backing up is something you had to do with some 4x4 systems many years ago but the Wrangler's doesn't require it. Just back off on the accelerator pedal and it will disengage from 4Hi to 2Wd more quickly.

There are many write ups and it installs in your existing carrier so I don't see why not. Look around at the write ups and see if it's something you think you can do.
