Has anyone had problems with their rear locker after installing 5.13 gears?
My locker was installed by a "professional shop" and seems to cycle OK
(On / Off) when the Jeep is suspended on the rack, but has issues (remains locked, etc.) once you lower it onto the ground. The Jeep's only got 4,000 miles on it and all the locker functions worked fine prior to the gear swap.
I also noticed that once the rear axle locked, the Jeep wouldn't come out of
4WD (even with the T-Case lever back in the 2-High position).

Man, a lot of shops mess this up :shaking:

For anyone getting gears done, it's worth spending a couple of minutes explaining to the shop about the locker sensors.

The shop that did my gears messed that up accidentally too. Apparently, it's easy to mess up and break. They replaced it and I believe mentioned it cost them about $100.

I have had a problem with the internal spring of the locker catching on the side gear and not letting the locker unlock too. Have also F'd up the sensor, it will usually engage the locker and not allow it to unlock
