My TJ on 37s ran a stock real locker for years. After I lost a tooth on my rear ring gear, I went ahead and put a stock Rubi front locker in the rear instead. The stock front is open/lock. The stock rear is limited slip/lock. In any case, I have never had any issues with lockers whatsoever.

Currie Enterprises installed 35" tires on our 2003 Rubicon with their 4" suspension + 1" body lift 14 years / 35,000 miles ago (hey its a toy, not a daily driver). However they strongly recommended we upgrade the drivetrain as well to make it basically bulletproof:

Currie CurrectLync steering system
Currie Enterprises Anti-Rock Sway Bars F&R
Currie heavy duty motor mounts
Tom Woods driveshaft
Alloy USA Chromemoly Axle Shaft Kits 5x5
Alloy USA 4.88 gears
Warn front hubs 5x5
VANCO Super 16" Big Brake Kit + booster
35" LT315/75R16 BFG All Terrain KO2 tires
Mickey Thompson Classic Lock II wheels (faux beadlock / 5x5 bolt spacing)

Curries were right. It has been bulletproof on the trails AND drivable on the roads too.

Currie is good stuff. I also have the Vanco BB kit with hydroboost (and hydro assist steering) - makes an amazing difference in braking.

That's another part of it. It's in the single digits here and my garage heater can't make it comfortable enough yet alone warm enough to paint.



I have a lead on my stang, so hopefully it sells this weekend. If so, that will free up some garage space for me to tear some parts off, get paint on parts that need paint, and begin the build.


In the meantime, I'm in the hunt for some used adjustable front control arms.
