front locker on 2000 tj

First just have to comment... decided to go with Fabtech 6.0 inch long arm lift and I am thrilled! It is great...

My question is... what is the word in the forum on putting in a front locker with out the front hub conversion kit?

Re: front locker on 2000 tj

If it were me, i'd go with a arb. Especially without the front hub conversion.

Re: front locker on 2000 tj

I have a detroit in the front of mine, no hubs. When it was new, I could barely feel it, but now that it's broken in, it's a little annoying. In really tight turns in parking lots it bucks pretty hard.

If I had it to do over, I would put an ARB in front.

Re: front locker on 2000 tj

I have driven around with my front hubs locked with my lock right and I have never felt it.

Re: front locker on 2000 tj

Really... and you haven't noticed it! I had a lock right in my toyota rear and I certainly noticed it... I can't imagine that in corners you wouldn't feel it especially at low speeds...

I really know that the ARB is the best way to go... Im just so damn cheap... Sometimes I wonder why I own a Jeep then... OH YEAH THEY RULE!! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: front locker on 2000 tj

yeahh... I don't think I want to purchase a locker from a company that Im not 110% confident in like a Rubicon Express... Im sure the product is fine but I guess Im a little picky

I said front, not rear. Yes I notice the rear but not the front with just the hubs locked on the street.
