    In praise of basically stock TJ's

    I was thinking along the lines of protecting the undercarriage. Since I am at stock height, i always worry about whats exposed underneath.

    In praise of basically stock TJ's

    Completely agree! Aside from lockers, one mod I would reccommend for a stockish jeep is skid plates and rock sliders. My oil pan on my stock height jeep will second this idea. Lifts, winches, etc... are useful... but the armor tends to get overlooked. Hell, I would venture and say skid...

    Things to do / not do at the Smoky Mountain Jeep Invasion next weekend

    Want to cross a redline? Install angry bird grills on their jeeps when they aren't looking.

    Lunch box locker on a daily driver?

    I run an aussie up front... your vehicle capability shoots way up. As Jerry said above.. aussies will click on the street when turning. I dont mind at all.. but everyone will think your jeep is busted lol. I wouldnt lock the d35 unless you upgrade it to a s35. Once you do.. get a selectable...

    July Jeep Gladiator Sales

    With that money id buy 4 TJs. Joking... probably the gladiator. Not interested at all in a 4dr jeep. Then again... not interested at all in a full cab truck.

    Call jeeps a "car", but refer to your jeep as a "built jeep rig".

    Has anyone tried OX lockers?

    I disagree, but its all good. I really dont care, other than trying to keep this forum free from becoming cesspool like that "other" jeep forum. See you all on the trail.

    Is your statement true for this thread?

    The new Elocker I like. Actuators have little wear and tear. I wouldnt run a spool, since i dd mine and hit snow at times.

    Has anyone tried OX lockers?

    Again, don't "Strawman" or mischaracterize my position. Gotta leave the driveway unless it isn't 100% reliable? When did i ever say that? Who said that? Did i miss it? Was that even insinuated? Either argue on merit or let it go. Your reacting rather then responding. If you even read...

    Has anyone tried OX lockers?

    @Blaine, dont "straw man" this argument, my statement of FACT is simple... A system or assembly that has less dependent components , less complexity, is therefore less prone to failure. And to be ultra clear, ill repeat what i said at the start of the thread... all 3 lockers discussed in this...

    At this point, logic has left the conversation.

    Has anyone tried OX lockers?

    Sure.. common sense is good. Dont route your wiring in an exposed manner, etc.. But by simple design, Ox with the cable and lever is the simpliest mechanical locker between the 3. Less dependent components, less parts, simple... results in a lower chance for failure.

    I would guess the underlining point he was trying to make was about the value of simplicity. Less components, less chances of failure.
