Post Pic's of your Jeep

Some sort of lost...
Pretty much my dream JKUR right there Brian. I am curious why you changed the rear locker to a Detroit from the factory e-locker. How do you find it drives on the street with the 6spd, is it your daily driver?

The Detroit was on my F150, not the Jeep. For what it's worth I loved the Detroit and a previous Aussie locker in another vehicle, but both were automatics. A good friend of mine had a TJ with a manual trans and Detroit and it was pretty miserable to drive. The inherent backlash of the Detroit (I could turn the driveshaft nearly 3/8 of a turn by hand freely) makes it very rough and clunky when shifting. Changing gears while turning was also interesting. Let off the throttle to shift and the locker disengages (oversteer), get back into the throttle and it locks and wants to understeer. You get use to that a little but I wouldn't install an auto locker with a manual trans myself. With an automatic they are pretty smooth.

I'm sure the question was asked because you thought I had the Detroit in the Jeep, but it drives great. The manual trans is noisy and clunky, I'm not a huge fan of it so far, but I'll take a noisy and clunky manual over an automatic any day. This is my daily driver at home, but I'm only home for 13 out of every 28 days. I would have no issues with this as a daily though, mileage is better than expected and it's comfortable to drive. I left the top off when I left for work this time though, and I'm pretty sure my wife is enjoying it while I'm gone... :rolleyes:
