Reading up on this mod I see the benefits.
Having both rears locked all the time, weather your in 2hi, 4hi or 4lo.
Are they some negative aspects of this mod?

You're not locked all the time, only when you activate the locker. The mod gives you the option of locking when you're in 2 wheel drive and 4-Hi as oposed to only being able to lock when in 4-Lo and keeping under 5 miles an hour.

Da'burd is correct. And their are no negative affects to this mod, other than not doing it.

You can engage the locker while you're moving.

One possible side effect is this:



If you experience this rare, but serious, side effect, consult your insurance immediately.

No not really, just don't engage your locker on the highway.. or while moving at all for that matter.
You can't lock when you are going over 5mph anyways.

I soldered all my connections, and I soldered straight onto the pin connector. Much cleaner looking (looks stock) and less likely to come apart on the trail...

No, he's just stu...


The ECU will only lock the rear end if you are under 5mph, anything over and the light will just blink.

The locker doesn't lock up the rear wheels, it locks the rear end so that each will spins the same speed, no matter what. Helpful if your rear end flex's or one is in the air, and the tire that has the least ammount of traction spins, while the other just stays there. A locker locks both axles and spins both tires at the same speed...

That is one thing I find annoying. I understand why the limit is there, but there are times when I engauge my ARB at higher speeds. In fact I will engauge/disengauge it on steep hills quite often, and i dont want to slow below 5. I know when I am not spinning tires, and its safe to lock. Thou the ARB does engauge a lot quicker than the elocker. I guess when my new truck arrives it will just require altering my locker use habbits....
