  • Rubicon OE lockers in 4high

    I have been told there is a way to program the lockers to run in 4high. Can anyone shed some light on this?

      Small roads with New England snow for example.

        Google "Jeep Locker Mod" and you'll find detailed instructions on this mod. Basically:

        Using separate switches tapped to the locker relays (located on the fender side, behind the battery). This allows the lockers to be enabled in 2wd, 4hi, 4lo. When you turn off these switches, the normal rubi switches still work normally.

        Locate the locker relays next to the battery, violet wire with green stripe is rear locker; violet with blue stripe is front locker. These wires are wired to separate switches. The other side of the switch terminal is grounded.

        Here are the relays...

          A Superchips programmer will enable this functionality too.

            There are a few ways to do it like mentioned. We have wired them up to a separate switch source (like an sPod), or you can use a superchips programmer. My favorite option is the trail dash, as you can activate them on the screen.

              The Trail Dash is awesome. Good suggestion.

                Just a note from experience, lockers are good at low speeds and on loose surfaces...but the opposite is correct for slick, icy roads at 4H speeds. Locking your diffs at speeds over 15mph in 4h on ice will actually reduce how well you can control your jeep, it breaks the traction for 2 of your 4 wheels when going around a corner on slick surfaces. I'm cautioning you extremely. It may give you the feeling of confidence, but in reality its much more dangerous. Save the lockers for getting out of a rut and getting out of the trails.
