Eliminating Rear Rubicon Locker

After wading through multiple pages of search results, I haven't found an answer to this question.

I'm upgrading my Rubi's rear axle with a 35-spline ARB and shafts; I'll still have the stock front e-locker. Since the front locker will only engage after engaging the rear, I need a workaround. Anyone running a similar set-up? If so, how did you modify your wiring to run just the front e-locker?

2011 2DR Rubicon with stuff.
2012 JK8 with some stuff.

simply wire a switch to the locker it is 12 volt. Lots of threads out there on doing in.

You mean just wire the stock front locker to an aftermarket switch?

yes, you just need to supply 12 volts to the locker to turn it on.
