I dont think theres anyone making an e-locker for the jimny, others may know better.

J999MNY has front and rear ARB air operated lockers (and compressor, air tank, solenoids, etc). I like them very much as they are engaged at the flick of a switch,tough and have bonus airline, but they were complex to fit and expensive.

Otherwise you have a choice of a quaife LSD (see others, i dont understand them properly) and versions of a lockrite (lockrite, luchbox locker, kaiser). These are basically permanently locked and 'unlock' selectivley by a varying version of a ratcheting mechanism. Benefit is its simpler, easier to install and always engaged, downside is noise and sometimes unwanted wheel spin on tight cornering. I think only the kaiser is available for the front also.

Like Riccy, I am not aware of anyone currently making an e-locker. I had heard a rumor about Harrop Eaton preparing to release one for the Jimny but have heard nothing since. If you know of one, please post the info.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

Quaife is a limited slip differential that won't stop you getting cross-axled, as it can only divert a percentage of the torque from one side to the other - if you've got a wheel spinning up in the air, it's trying to shift a percentage of zero, which is also zero :)

If you're building a pure offroader, then the Lockright or Kaiser might be an option, but for a vehicle that's for both road and off-road use, I think an ARB on the rear is the only sensible option.

I agree with Gadget.
If you're on a budget the Lock Right will do the trick, but requires some getting used to on road.

But, if you're only buying one locker at first, pehaps due to budget. Consider getting an ARB locker for the front axle first. The rear axle later on.
I know the strength on the shafts and joints could be better but often the front wheels loose traction before rear wheels does.

I did find a site that looks like it can provide lockers in China, the link is here.

Hope this helps.
