locker

I just bought an 09 jeep wrangler jk x and want to put a rear locker in it I don't want a full time locker but also don't want to spend a lot I thought about an ox locker but not sure how to mount the switch on the inside so thought I'd ask some opinions

What are you doing with the Jeep? Do you do a lot of off roading? Rock crawling? DD? A good choice that I recommend for a DD that does not see a lot of rock crawling is the Detroit True Trac. I had them in both axles on my WJ and now have them in both in my JKU.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.

ditto - let's start with why you want/need a locker and that will lead to an answer that best meets those needs.

Why do you need/want a locker? OX is fine but you have to choose 1 of 3 of their actuating techniques.

Really? There is Eaton, Yukon, ARB, OX, Aussie, Detroit, Auburn.

The Eaton for the dana 44 is crap. Aussie and Detroit are auto lockers/lunchbox. Yukon, ARB, Auburn and OX are all selectable. Auburn is a limited slip when not locked but I have heard there can be problems with the system. Yukon, ARB and OX can be air actuated. Personally I would go with Yukon Zip locker.

Try a different search engine. There are a ton of options.
