Title: Gen 2 axle swap
Post by: montynv on September 23, 2017, 09:58:38 AM
Hi all looking for any advice/stories/pics from those who have done the swap. I'm also wondering how the locker was wired up as well as the detent switch. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thx

 What year is your donor axle? The pump is a simple power and ground, add a witch and a relay like you would any on/off part. The detent you can wire into your switch if it has a light, have the detent supply ground to turn the light on when the locker is engaged.

 There are more and less complicated ways to do the job, easiest is power and gorund to a switch to the locker pump. Most involved would be a safety switch with 2 lights, one light for illuminating the switch at night and one for the detent plus a relay.

 The whole swap is, obviously you can get switches that have the detent light built in. I have one like this but with two different color lights.

Instead of wiring the above switch to light up when the switch is pressed you can wire it to the detent.
