Rear Locker

We’ve said it once, we’ll say it again, but that doesn’t mean we hate them. We are talking about automatic lockers in the rear of a street-driven, short-wheelbase Jeep. If you can, don’t do it. How the locking and unlocking affects you will depend on the weight of the Jeep, the wheelbase, whether you have an auto or manual transmission, the size of your tires, and so on. In some cases, such as in weather or with more aggressive lockers, the locker engagement can cause lane changes or even spinouts.
