lockers

Hey everyone. I need some help. I'm looking at putting some lockers on my 90 wrangler. I was looking at the OX Trax Lockers are those any good? Also would air lockers be better. How well would they hold up I mean I dont want to spend all that money on them to have to keep replacing hoses and what not. Thanks for all your help and all.

Re: lockers

You might want to think about an axle upgrade before spending all that hard earned cash on lockers. Its almost a shame to put high $$$ lockers in the wimpy stock axles if you going to do any kind of wheeling at all. Or you may want to try some the "lunchbox" type lockers until you can do an axle upgrade. They will do fine in your stock axles and are much cheaper than the ox or air lockers. For me, there is only one locker, DETROIT! Good luck!

Re: lockers

I would aggree 100% with the above comment. Don't bother throwing all that money into stock "read Weak" axels. What will probably happen is that as soon as you are locked up and put the power to it you are going to break your stocks. Then you will be out of luck. If you really need a locker then throw a cheap one in the rear. But if you can wait, then save your money for a D44 swap, and put the locker in that. You will never have to look back.

Re: lockers

Im assuming that you have a Dana 35. I also have one, and I wanted a locker, but I didnt want to pay the money for a whole new axle. I got the Superior 35 Kit which came with new stronger axle shafts and a Detroit Locker. I love the Detroit, dont get anything different, atleast for the rear. It only ran about $850 so it doesnt hurt your wallet too much. The Detroit will hold up through just about anything, and its always there.
