2006 Rubi LJ locker issues
Hello gang - long time no type...
I've been out of the garage way too long - life happens. Anyhoo, trying to get back at it. I had bought my wife a stock 2006 Unlimited Rubicon several years ago. It has been lightly wheeled. A lift kit and 32" tires later, it spent a little too much time in a creek. Water entered the airlines for the diffs (cracked and rotted airlines). Both lockers failed and developed air leaks inside the units in the diffs. I was able to buy the front locker parts needed to repair it, but the rear locker parts are all gone apparently. The front and rear have been discontinued for some time - I was just lucky on the front.
I took the Jeep to a good shop that does great off-road work to see if the rear locker was salvageable and they said no joy. They also looked for factory parts to no avail.
Any aftermarket options to integrate with the factory controls? On my old YJ with D44's, I love the Eaton E-Lockers - haven't broken one yet with 36" tires.
88 YJ (sort of)
