Thinking of removing the rear locker and installing a front locker

I am planning to remove the rear lockright, sell it, and then get a front locker instead. I have no reasons to do so, no complaints for the rear locker, but just want to try something different since $$ permits. I have the old parts from a year ago and wanted to check to see if i had everything. I have four gears, 2 rounded washers and the center shaft. Is this all i need to reinstall these gears? I lost the installation manual for the lockright so i can't reverse the steps. If i know i have all the parts, i can get it back together.


I'm gonna post the lockright in the for sale forum shortly.

He's probably, for good reason, nervous about having a locker in his rear D35c.

Actually, to tell you the truth, the way it handles bothers me a little. I drove my buddy's front-locked tj and definately missed the stock road manners. I have full faith in my 35 (i know it can be weak but i abused the living hell out of it and it's still in one piece) when it's locked so that's not really playing a role in the switch. I would love to lock both front and rears but that's just making the jeep too extreme for the trails i wheel. I'm one of those guys like just like to toy with the jeep and try different things with it. I like change......

which brings me to realize why i keep re-arranging my living room.......

You would only need the old spider gears if it was open, not sure if you had a Tracloc before. If you don't have the spider gears, you could find a set easily enough in the Parts Wanted forums of various Jeep forums, maybe even free from someone that installed a locker. Otherwise, almost any 4x4 shop should have old ones sitting around from a D35c locker install.
