Re: 03 Rubicon

Anyone know what the locker setup is, it seems a *very* complicated ARB setup. However ARB runs at a lot > 5psi. Also, limited slip+ARB in the rear? Never heard of it..
From the 2002 car show press release (Jeep's website):

The new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon has locking differentials that can be driver actuated when the transfer case is in low range and the vehicle speed is less than 10 miles per hour. A dash-mounted rocker switch allows the driver to lock the rear axle and toggle the front axle locker on and off for improved maneuvering. A pneumatic pump runs at just five pounds per square inch for a more reliable and quieter system than is available in the aftermarket. This mechanically locks the axle shafts together to drive all four wheels at the same speed. When not locked, the rear axle has a torque-sensing limited slip feature to provide better traction and handling on-road.
