Locker on 2005 wk?
Does anyone know of a locker for my wk? I have the Chrysler 10 bolt as far as I know. Or is there a way to pull a Dana out of another jeep with a locker? It is a 2x4 and I am trying to get a little bit more traction where possible...

I think a detroit or powertrax or aussie for any chry 8.25 will work.

Thanks for the help! Which one would you prefer? I know ARB offers one but it's kinda pricey though.

In this order detroit (had it in my 98xj never failed me) aussie locker, powertrax no slip cheap helper but not a real locker. Spend the $500 and get a detroit.

you do NOT have a chryco 8 1/4 if your 2wd. You have a special Dana 44 iirc the gearset is skinnier than a normal dana 44. I cannot give you a for sure answer for a locker but I would imagine a ring and pinion store (like randysringandpinion and similar) would have more helpful information.

Ok. Thanks I will check into that. I'll give an update when I can.
