Car: 1997 Jeep TJ Wrangler 4.0 Sport Soft Top

Colour: Lapis Blue

These are just a few old pics that show the Jeep at the time when the front and rear axles had been removed for the fitting of ARB Air Locking Differentials. The air lockers were fitted to allow for some more serious off-road fun! (the vehicle was already fitted with a 4" lift kit and 33" tyres by this stage.)

Air locked axles allow for the wheels on either end of an axle to turn together. This allows for much greater traction, than normal. (Normally on bad and slippery conditions, the power would go to the wheel that is already slipping).

Air locking can therefore get you out of a situation, that otherwise might see you stuck, or unable to continue! Air locks are not fitted to all vehicles as standard though, because they can make normal road driving situations more dangerous!

Air Locks make it harder to turn corners for normal driving, because with air locks, the wheels on either side of the vehicle are trying to cover the same distance as each other, but you need the inner wheel to complete a smaller circle for normal driving.

Air locks are therefore made to be switched on and off as and when required. They are powered by an air compressor which in this vehicle has been mounted under the bonnet. The control switches have in this case been located just in front of gear lever on the center console, for very easy access when needed.
