Installing and Testing the TORQ Locker for Jeep 8.25 XJ Axle

Strong, easy, AND cheap? Surely that’s a typo! As it turns out, lunchbox lockers don’t have to be a compromise on strength, and they can actually get even easier to install! TORQ Masters Industries has been developing their TORQ Locker design for use in more and more axle applications, and we had a chance to test out their newest addition, the TORQ Locker for the Chrysler/Jeep 29 spline 8.25 rear axle. Being a C-Clip axle this is a bit of a variation on the installation found in say a Dana 30 or Dana 44 application. We’ve been super impressed with the functionality of the locker, stick around to the end for a review on wet and dry on-road handling, and some serious off road testing.
To recap: It’s the strongest lunchbox style locker design out there, it’s super easy to install, it costs less than $400–AND my favorite part: it’s MADE IN THE USA by people who stand behind their product.
