2012 differential lock bypass

I am sure this is online somewhere but i can not find it for JK.

Mostly I want to lock the rear to get out of my driveway. So i donít have to go to fwd, when I do that I have to wait for 0 traffic so I can pull out and have time to shift back to 2wd. I know when and how to use lockers jus5 can not see installing air lockers owe already have.

There is an electrical hack, I don't know it offhand. It should be pretty easy to find on JKowners forum. Also a device like the superchips trail dash can do it.

i seen one in several places about tapping into a wire and putting it on a grounding switch. I hesitate because while some start out talking about a JK all the replies about how it worked for them are TJ owners.

I read somewhere that the only hack for JK was a tuner, but I can not find anything definative on that either LOL

I have not done this yet but this company makes switches that allow you to bypass the factory stuff. I also want to do a bypass.

Has anyone used this switch?
