Yeah nice perk of my job, the owner let's me work on my junk nights/weekends in the shop.

Used Chevy flattop knuckles I got used. The knuckles had 3/4" holes drilled in them already so I just went with heims. They are 7/8ths.

Elocker bulk head is just a rubber plug. They call for a 1/2 inch hole, of i did it again I would have drilled it slightly smaller for a better fit. Now to figure out something for the rear, to get rid of the Trac lock. I have a spare 60 carrier I might just weld.

since it's kind of a dual purpose rig, i might suggest something a little different. one of the guys i compete with runs a class-1 rig that keeps up with us on the trail no issue, it's nutz. for class-1 you are only allowed one locker, so he runs a selectable front with an EATON helical posi in the back. now most of the time the rear hooks great, maybe a touch of throttle to compensate, but when sh!t gets harry and he start hanging a tire he has cutting brakes. he simply grabs the brake of the spinning tire, the other hooks, and he's up. had i not seen it work SO well, i'd have laughed at the idea. plus the cutting brakes work great for turning, and the posi is really nice on the street.

i put the helical posi in the TJ since it's my expedition rig, but now i want to add an actual cutting brake over my ball valves and never look back.

Im interested to hear how you like the Eaton locker. I am weighing options for lockers in my TJ at the moment and selectable is always nice.

Yeah very dual purpose, mostly just a truck. But it has a cage and lockers so I can kind of wheel it hard. I've witnessed the posi and brake thing work well. Maybe I'll try that with the Trac loc next time. My e brake is kind of hard to get to with the a pillar cage bar though. I agree locking the front goes farther than locking the back.

If i was going to buy a different carrier I'd probably just get another Eaton. I got the front for a screaming deal, guy bought it for a jk and realized it was for an old 44. Eaton also is a posi when unlocked

shoot! i was thinking lunch-box locker when you said trac loc ... if you already have an LSD, i wouldn't bother spending money on it til she's broke. game on

in the mean time, go all in one of these:

Uh yeah. I drove my tj daily with a welded rear when it was on the 40" tsl. Didn't bother me.

This thread/build...while nice to read about...makes me appreciate the decision to not have another "project" for the foreseeable future.

I'm not sure but since you have posted it in every build thread. Do you want a project in the foreseeable future?


This really isn't a project. I drive it everyday, some times I fix stuff. Just like you putting a tranny in your bimmer

I didn't realize I posted it in every build thread. But obviously I believe it. Transmission in the Bimmer was a direct replacement repair, not a modification or upgrade. And I hated having to spend the time to do it even.
