    Lock out hubs

    on a 2010 rubicon, are auto locking hubs on the front an aftermarket add on?

    I'm new to newer...well, not old...Jeeps and on the 2010 the front drive shaft spins when rolling and no 4wd. Is that correct?

    Thanks

    You can't unlock the hubs on a factory JK. You can get conversion kits to have manual hubs.

    Lock out hubs

    The JK hubs are, by design, locked all the time. That means the front axle shafts and driveshaft spin as you drive. There are various free spin / locking hub aftermarket options, including Teraflex and Yukon. They entail a new wheel bolt pattern and therefore require new wheels.

    Thanks everyone for confirming. Sorry if it was redundant.

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.
