the lockers are selectable ... which means they can be turned on & off .. this type uses air to engage them. so.. by turning on the air supply (flip of the switch) the axles are locked. selectable lockers ussally use air, cable, or elec. to engage them. auto lockers engage when ever power (as in drive shaft) is applied.

thanks, it's a basic build, lol
I picked up a Full Traction rear upper arm tri-link with truss from joes67camero also.
I am looking forwards to putting it on. And getting rid of the track bar.
It wheels fine, everyone says get rid of the track bar. So i will

Nice TJ man I really like it with the 37s. I have a 97 TJ with the 6in RC long arm running 35 boggers but I wanna go up to 37s. I am also looking to triangulate the rear and get rid of the track bar. As far as the lift goes I love it, flexs like no other. You'll love it even more with tube fenders in the front gives a lot more room for flex really. I've had mine just over a year and its went thru alot of changes. I still have the stock front dana 30 but I put an 8.8 in the rear with LSD which I'm not a fan of limited slip so a detroit will be coming soon. I also have a lockright in the front which I love. Mine doesn't see the road at all, but really nice jeep man keep up the good work
