Re: locker question

just as olin noted, it will not change your gear ratio, unless you decide to put new ones on at the time you install your locker, but as I see on your profile, if you have a thing for speed, respect your Jeep with a locker installed, they do cause changes to handling,especially in a short whelbase like a jeep. these are all adaptable to, but high speeds when you are not used to the newly gained handling characteristics, could cause some erratic handling.

Re: locker question

No,it doesnt change the gear ratio.........BUT!

Some lockers DO require you to change the carrier...and "while you're at it" is a great time to change those gears you've been needing since you added those shiny new Bigger mud tires.....
