Ya I'm very confused by this financially unless the crate axle is just about free (as in, less than $1500 because you could pick up a J8 axle + aftermarket axle shafts for that and have a better axle, the rest of the Rubicon crate axle is going to be thrown away, right?).
Anyways, the ring gear front and rear are different sizes between a Rubicon front and a rear (the rear is the same for Rubicon or not). I believe one is 8.8" and one is 8.5". So no I don't think these would have the same carrier/locker (although I'm not 100% sure for a fact). Edit, the more I think about this I'm not sure if that makes different carriers, but the ring gear is not the same size, maybe the rear gear just hangs further off the edge of the carrier?
