Locker bypass?

Was wondering if anyone has tried the locker bypass on a 2006 Rubicon? Got the mod from RockCrawler.com. Specifically the one to be able to lock in 4 low or 4 high at any speed.

While the jumper wire method is quick and easy and works fine, I highly recommend the method of putting a safety switch in the circuit.

Would this be the correct wiring for the mod to be able to activate in 4 low and 4 high at any speed with a safety switch? Connecting 4 & 5 together?

Yes, I believe that would be the correct way to wire it for lockers at any speed.
But I kinda like the idea of being of the safe side and not being able to kick in the lockers at over 10 mph and they kicking out at 45 mph.

I also wired mine with the switch.

So tell me something! When I turn the "safety" toggle to the on position do I still need to push the factory installed toggle to engage the lockers. Also the diagram on rockcrawler.com shows the diagram with no switch for any t/c position at any speed. I pasted the switch in myself. Is this the same wiring as you used? Thanx in advance djleathal7.

Yes you still need to hit the hit the locker switch to engage the lockers.

Consider the safety switch if anybody else drives the Jeep - the idea of my fiancee hitting the lock switch at highway speeds makes my credit card cringe....

Has anyone ever installed a 2nd OEM locker switch and wired them so you could have a seperate switch for the front and rear lockers?

I think it would be pretty sweet if you could have independent control over both axles and have the OEM switches to make it look like it came from the factory
