because it's a 4x4 and 4.0, i believe you have a 8.8" 28spline.

Don't you have to buy an open carrier to run one? Also everyone stopped making a locker for the 28 spline except for powertrax. Owning a Ranger FTL some more.

if you've got a limited slip, you must swap in an open carrier, then the locker can go in. BUT....that involves swapping carriers...and when swapping carriers, you need to reset backlash and gear mesh....which is the same as setting up gears. Should run about $100 labor for swapping in a new carrier.

Nope. Only for the front or Exploder/FX4 31 spline.

They make the powertrax no-slip for a limited slip carrier. No need to swap to an open carrier for this one.
