Yukon Zip Lockers: Air Operated Lockers

 

Overview of a Zip Locker

If you're looking for the latest in on-demand traction, then the Zip locker is for you. The Zip locker is an air operated locking differential designed with severe offroad use in mind. Its 8620 case and 4320 steel internals provide maximum strength against failure and give you piece of mind on the trail. Each unit comes with a variety of small parts for installation and operation, including air line and fittings, seal housing, shims (if applicable), operation switch with front and rear covers, zip ties and more. A variety of air sources can be used for operating the Zip Locking, including air compressors or onboard air systems. Yukon also offers an industry-first "compeition series" Zip Locker tha defaults-to-lock if the air pressure is interrupted for any reason. Competition series units are available for Dana 60 in 35 spline. Assembled in the USA!

 

A selectable locker is preferable in recreational four wheeling and off-road racing applications. The ability to unlock the differential for tighter turning and lock the differential for maximum traction on-demand give you the best of both worlds. While air is used to lock the differential in standard applications, Yukon is the only manufacturer to offer a competition unit that uses air to unlock the differential. The advantage of this design is that during competition if the air pressure is interrupted for any reason, the unit defaults to lock for continued traction. If air pressure is interrupted with a standard unit, it defaults to unlocked, costing traction and severely hampering a race vehicle's performance.

Product Reccomendations

When purchasing a zip locker, it is beneficial to change out the bearings and shims for optimal performance. We carry carrier installation kits that will include all of the necessary parts to make your installation easier. A complete Differential Installation Kit is also a good alternative option since it will replace all bearings and seals in the differential as well.
