The positive manual engagement/disengagement of cable lock is prone to failure and it allows for disengagement on vehicles equipped with a front locker ? very useful when making a tight turning radius off-road. Add the option of 2WD low range with full control from inside the vehicle and this is a must have item for your off road vehicle.
The product is functional and engages on command. I installed this actuator on my 97 ram 2500 cummins since my factory actuator failed. Make sure you zip tie the cable over to the loom of brake lines and other cables on the drivers side of the engine bay. If you do not zip tie the cable at this spot, the cable can catch on the throttle linkage. This is a great product at a great price.

Knob pulled off the first time i usedit
Not happy with this product at all, broke with first use, and the bad part is you have to cut wires and change things around to use it, and like in my case , I had to fix everything back the way it was before because of poor craftsmanship and engineering.my advice is fix the problems with the vacumm and don't buy this cause you'll have to when it breaks

was expecting more....
was expecting more for the price, knob mounting threads are plastic!! no literature for install. was expecting metal threads to mount, not plastic- only metal is cable itself.
is this kit available for the 07 Ram? if not is there anything similar that will fit the 07? Thanks

This kit is to replace the factory vacuum lock on the Dana axles. The 2003 and later doesn't use a disconnect front end. We have a kit to install locking hubs on your front axle if it is a 2500. The kit is made by DynaTrac and here is the part number
