Lunchbox Locker install on XJ
« on: June 10, 2017, 12:36:34 PM »
Hey... I'm pretty sure after speaking with others last night I'm going with an Aussie style Locker....the XJ is not a DD but we like to cruise around in her. I know about the annoying clicking sound but that doesn't bother me. I am confused on whether to install it in the front or rear? Help!!! LoL  :smile:

If yer gonna lock the front go with a selectable. Do the rear first and wheel it.

I assume you have the Chrysler 8.25? I was surprised when I did mine how easy the install was. Been very happy with it. Always works and the price point was hard to beat.
