    Once a year depending on how much use the jeep gets. Or when I can’t turn them anymore which ever comes first. Lol

    Awesome write up! But this and the JTX videos made me realize I don't understand what hub lockers are for...

    I initially assumed that hub lockers are the manual version of air/e differential lockers.

    After watching Eddie twist his hub lockers I realized that may not be the case. I'm assuming his UD60s came equipped with air or e lockers so what would he need manual hub lockers for? Unless they are for some other reason...

    Anyone have a thread they can point me at that explains how these work? Or maybe my initial assumptions were correct and Eddie went with the manual lockers on this build... Apologies in advance for my ignorance!

    Lockout hubs at the wheel end are totally independent of the locking differentials inside the pumpkin part of the axle.
    The lockout hubs disconnect the stub shaft of the axle from the wheels so that they freewheel and do not turn the differential. This saves wear and tear on the front axle parts as well as the drive shaft.

    The locking differentials lock the two complete axle shafts together via air (ARB), mechanical means (OX), or electric (Eaton)

    A hub is not a locker. They are separate. Eddie has elockers in his UD60’s and I have ARB’s in my Dynatrac. That makes no difference. A hub allows your front end to not spin until locked. Driving down the road my front Driveshaft, axle shafts and differential do not spin as they do on your factory axle. If I hit the air locker without the hubs locked, it won’t work. A hub basically engages your front end.

    Thank you both. Makes sense and I am a little bit less ignorant! Not much though.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
