NICE!!!! Make sure you take pics during the install of everything... You should just start a build thread. If you do, toss up the link in here, so that we don't miss it.ita getting a hp 60 14 bolt and 40's and a full cage:cheers2:
It's automatic... no lever.btw. how do spartan lockers engage and disengage? i know they are mechanical as opposed to air lockers but i cant find anywhere how to engage them. is it like limited slip? or is there a lever?
Rock Hard 4x4. The pics in magazines don't do it justice.2doorxj said:Niceeeee!!!
What cage is that?
that seems kind of sketchy to me. sounds like it could fail and not engage/disengage when i need it to.It's automatic... no lever.
It's really not sketchy.that seems kind of sketchy to me. sounds like it could fail and not engage/disengage when i need it to.
It really isn't sketchy at all. I just got back from testing it out and couldn't be happier. I bought a lock right for the rear, because Spartan doesn't make one for the 8.25 and the designs are very similar. I like the Spartan design better, but really not much difference at all. I just like that the Spartan has pins to hold the springs in while installing. I will be tossing the lock right in the rear this week sometime and testing it out next weekend. I'll let you know how that goes as well.It's really not sketchy.
Im pretty sure the spartan is the same as an aussie or lockrite.
When torque is applied to the driveshaft (acceleration/causes the carrier to spin) the cam setup in the locker locks up.
When torque in the wheels is enough to cause differential action, the locker unlocks, and allows the wheels to spin seperately.
It's very effective. I ran an aussie in my rear axle and it was great, but it had the tendency to push the front end straight in corners when I was applying gas. I sold it. I still have a lockrite up front.
You're right, everybody should just run full spools front and rear. :rofl: :tea:that seems kind of sketchy to me. sounds like it could fail and not engage/disengage when i need it to.
So why is it stock?
I pulled all my junk off it and sold it all. Couldnt handle the gas prices anymore gettin 12 mpg. Made about as much off just the parts as i woulda if i had sold it lifted. Eventually i plan on selling it...maybe. I think i might be buyin an older lifted Chevy truck for the summer to **** around in and keep my jeep as my dd. Who knows lol. I might startin takin the bus to work if gas prices keep goin up. :laugh: I put in 17 gallons today and spent $70 exactly. Good thing is i can get a whole work week out of one tank now. I used to use a quarter tank a day. Damn you gas companies. :nono:Did I miss something? Last time I remember seeing it, the jeep was lifted.
its my buddys jeep. The axles and tires off that are going on mine. But when he does a build thread ill throw it up here for sure :2thumbsup:NICE!!!!
