73 cj5 locker questions

I recently bought a 73 cj5 with d44 rear and d30 front(more details in sig). Both are open diffs and I am wanting to get rid of the spiders .

Will and Aussie/Lock-Right style locker in the D44 hold up with the 35x15.50 boggers?

What about in the D30 front?

I tried to search but, I couldn't find my exact answer. So if it has already asked and answered, please direct me there.

Thanks in Advance for any help

JB

The D44 rear is marginal at best for 35x15.50 boggers and the D30 will shortly with that size of tire.

Even with minimal rock use? Majority trails and mud?

I've got a 73 cj5, detroit rear, Lincoln front. 33 12.5. All holding up very well.

With your setup of 35 15.5 you should have tire rubbing issues.

I know this was a year ago but I ended up going with a mini spool for the rear and left the front open.

The wheels have a pretty large offset so, no rubbing.

I still have the dana 30 in the front of mine, 35 tires and a v8, 3 of the other guys i wheel with have the same, mine has a lock right, not sure about my friends, but mine work fine and has held up great, just make sure its assembled correctly, and check to make sure everything is tight occasionally, mine sees trail and some rock use, its all in how you drive it, less gas more finesse, you will be fine

You should be fine unless you bounce or bind it in rocks. I have a locked HPD30 with 35s. I bet you break shafts/ujoints before your locker goes or pinion hops.

I've got an older Dana 44 rear axle on my CJ5. First thing I did was rebuild it with new bearings, etc. Then I tried out a Quick Lok which kept unlatching while driving straight so I replaced it with a Detroit. With 35s I've never had any problems with it. The Dana 30 is different. You have to take it easy or things start breaking.
It all depends on how heavy your foot is. Remember, if you start arguing with a rock, the rock always wins.
