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.
Put this on my 90 YJ. It works great and engages the front axles with ease. The best thing you can do if/when you install this is to think though where you want to route the cable. Once you drilll the hole to run the cable you don't want to have to drill another large hole.
On the down side, the housing for the fork is potted metal. Im figuring a way to sheild or put some kind of skip on mine to help protect it.
Does this product come with a manual to help with install
I have a 1989 jeep wrangler yj and the front tiers are not being powered/pulling when i put it in 4L. Im not exactly sure why i haven't taken anything apart yet but I read that the vacuum that locks the front fails alot with these older jeeps so will this help and does it come with a manual?
