How do i test stock lockers

Ok here it goes my buddy has a tj rubicon he bought from a guy thinking every thing was there / worked. We went to go flip on his lockers and nothing so we crawled under the jeep (u could practicly walk under this thing) and we found that the po removed the air compressor tuding. So how do i test the locker ? What ammount of psi do i pump in the axle

Jack up a tire and put no more than "5 PSI" into the locker. You will need to get a low pressure regulator to achieve this. After you put pressure to it see if you can rotate the lifted tire.

Someone else will answer, I'm just getting it going for you.... Seems like I read somewhere it is very low pressure. Like 6-8 psi or something.

If you want it to stay locked. Air pressure locks it and keeps it there till pressure is gone.

Two questions:

Where is the tubing disconnected? At the pump, or at the diff, or perhaps totally gone?

Is it in 4-Low?

Wow - sounds like that's a mess.

4Low is needed to activate the lockers, unless it's been modified. Whether or not there is a front drive shaft does not matter, the harness needs to see the shifter in 4Low before the pumps will activate (if they were there to begin with).
