Locker for WK2
 
Has anyone install an electric or air locker in the rear.

Would be real interested in one if you get any answers. For the number of WK2 GC's being sold, you would think that ARB and TJM etc,would start to update their web pages with GC specific products.

Cheers

I'd love to see them come out with a kit for a locker or something.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the QuadraTrac II has a electronic rear locker right? And the center diff is locked if in 4wd low, so wouldn't you just get a front locker?

They are not lockers but electronic LSDs. The front is an open diff but traction controlled using brakes so all in all, better than lockers for most situations. Cross axling is a thing of the past.

Don't hold your breath waiting on anything from ARB for a WK2. Very clearly they have little to no interest in the Jeep market.

I would like to see the ELSD at least go back in the front. If lockers are ever produced I will have them. I am not a fan of traction control when going gets really tough, having both options and being able to select any thing you want is my preference. I was about to place an order when I found out the WK2 lost the front ELSD and have procrastinated for 18 months. Finally placed an order in May still waiting delivery.
I sincerely hope the after market accessory manufacturers get their act together and start producing the goodies for the WK2, there must be enough of them out there to justify, and more so if demand stays as to is to date.

I understand that road steering with the front ELSD was not as good so they dropped it.

Its only the Quadra Drive II that has the ELSD. The Quadra Drive options adds the ESLD to the QT II transfer case. QT II is an open rear.

Still it would be nice for jeep to at least have it as an option for people that want it. Or an aftermarket solution for the front diff to have some sort of ELSD..

Re: Locker for WK2
 
Can a Factory ELSD be installed in a 2012 quadra drive as an upgrade if you didnt get one when you originally purchased your WK 2 GC ?
In other words can you by a kit from Jeep or Mopar and get it installed.
Cheers

The housings are a lot different as well as perhaps the traction control software. You'd be talking about replacing the entire rear dif assembly and housing which I think sells for $2300+, maybe $4300+, at discount dealers in the US.

But the Quadra Drive has the rear ELSD, that's what differentiates it from the Quadra Trac II. .... unless there is something different for exports.... or you have a typo in your post.
