new lever 4x4 locker

Recommended Posts



Have not done one but I would imagine something like this:

1/ Locate the electric locker behind the front axle on the drivers side. It's a plastic box.

2 /Disconnect the plug-in wire and tape over old connecter (you might need it again) .

3/ Then unscrew the old locker(not screws on cover but protruding from the base) and pull it out towards the rear. Do not pull straight out towards you, a small rod engager needs to come out of the axel first and that needs to slide away from the axle to the back.

4 /Your new kit should have the same screw paten as the old locker. Install the new locker making sure it is properly in line with the entry point into the axle. Also make sure you drive the engager home into the axle and then tighten the fasteners.

5/ Now if you have a Trooper with the fuel tank in the front, you are on your own here and you will have to use your imagination a bit with regards to where the lever placement will be. If you have a newer Trooper the fuel tank wont be a problem, just install to the right of the front locker lever. Make sure the cable is clear of obstructions by using cable ties.

My suggestions with a fuel tank at the front are: Install low down & in level with the left of the hydraulic reservoirs, or replace lever with a manual chock set up and install anywhere, or just contact Lenny who has designed and fitted one himself. Once done, you will be all smiles. If the old electric locker has stopped working, it can be fixed if you haven't stripped the plastic gears.

I hope this helps and good luck.

Cheers Mike.

Talk about a stab in the dark. Does it use the same engager port, surely it must do? Regardless, you will have to take out the old locker. If the old port in not getting used, it will have to be plugged. I would of thought it would be a lot easier to base the new one around the old engager, making it a bolt off, bolt on. Never mind, at least you know it wont let you down.

Cheers Mike.

I understand now. Looks failsafe and solid. Will the lever go beside the front locker lever OK? You might be able to leave the old locker in and use it as a plug, just make sure the engager is out then disconnect the wire plug.

      Hi all, I am looking at putting in a dual battery setup to my 2015 Mule 4010. Anyone put one of these in before? Most of the research has pointed me to the True Am kit. Didnt know if anyone had done this or had a battery strap down tray they recommend or anything.  Between the Winch and the Stereo...and upcoming lights I want to be able to make sure it always starts.
       
      Thanks in advance,
      -Andrew

      Installed a radio/media player in my new Hisun Sector E1. Got a universal under dash kit from Amazon for $13, a radio/media player from Walmart for $17, and two speaker kits with grills from a friend for $10. Had some wire, connectors, and screws lying around. Mounted the radio in the plastic under dash kit. The radio is amazing for the price. It is only about two inches deep, but has Bluetooth, USB, and AM/FM radio. Mounted the speakers in the panel under the seat. Ran the wiring through the drive shaft tunnel. Installed a in-line fuse for the + wire and tapped in to the head lamp switch for the ign on wire. Tapped in to a ground wire in the wire loom behind the switches. I use this to play my tunes from a flash drive. I did not even bother to connect an antenna to it. Because the E1 is electric there is no engine noise to drown out the music!

      Just picked up a new overhead gun rack. I had to look around quite a bit, because I didn't like the design, nor the reviews of most. They typically rely on a spreader type design. That type of design causes a somewhat loose fit. I needed a more positive fit. So I went with the seizmic 07301

      Hi, I'm getting ready to supercharge my trooper and I'm looking for advice on the setup. So far I have... a AMR500 supercharger, small intercooler, Dolbeck EJK fuel controller and wideband. Looking for any advice on what else I'm going to need and what to expect..Thank you

      Got my spark arrestor installed, the way they did the exhaust for the turn I couldn't make one fit before.  Only had .045 dual shield on hand but I made it work.  Didn't get enough discs so I didn't put the cap on yet.  Turned out pretty good though.  One photo shows how it was, elbow too short to mount anything to.  Also would've put on top of the tire.
