Rubicon locker info

"Lock-up helical gear differential
Tochigi Fuji has introduced the lock-up helical gear LSD, which combines all the operating characteristics of the torque sensing helical gear LSD with an integrated full-locking mechanism to achieve maximum traction output of the vehicle drive axle. The vehicle operator controls the LSD lockup feature by means of a dash-pointed push button. The lock-up helical gear LSD directly replaces the vehicle "open" differential and uses normal gear lube oil, thus axle installation problems are minimized."

Re: Rubicon locker info

Is this the locker that Jeep is going to put in the Wrangler Rubicon Edition?

Re: Rubicon locker info

Is it just me, or does that sound like it's a little complex?

Re: Rubicon locker info

I hope it is not like the old Gov-loc's in the mid 80's Gm trucks. using cams and springs and what-not in there.. I have buddy that used to have one of those Gov-locs and swears by it. But then again he only ran 33's and never trailed it. Street duty only! what a waste.. hehe

Re: Rubicon locker info

FourWheeler Feb 2002, said that the 2003 Rubicon edition will come with front and rear locking diffs built by Tochigi Fuji Sanjyo. The lockers will be actuated by air pressure (dash mounted switch). I wonder what type of compresser they will use?
