Eaton’s Vehicle Group launches aftermarket ELocker differential for Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT

The electric locking differentials are a dependable option for the off-road enthusiast, needing just one wire to actuate and requiring no additional components such as air lines and compressors, the company says.

Power management company Eaton today announced its Vehicle Group has launched two aftermarket ELocker differentials for the 2018 and newer Jeep Wrangler JL and 2020 and newer Jeep Gladiator JT equipped with both manual and automatic transmissions. The electric locking differentials are a dependable option for the off-road enthusiast, needing just one wire to actuate and requiring no additional components such as air lines and compressors.

The Eaton ELocker differential is an electronic locking differential designed for drivers that want full control and traction on demand. It features net-forged gears offering the strength and durability needed for off-road and recreational driving, while its electronic controls provide driver-selectable operation and added reliability over similar air-controlled products. By simply pressing a dash switch, the differential sends all available torque to all wheels equally, providing maximum traction to overcome challenging terrain.

“Jeep enthusiasts are devoted to their vehicles and many have a strong desire to customize them,” said Corneliu Bogdan, director, Aftermarket Product Strategy, Eaton’s Vehicle Group North America. “Our new reliable ELocker differentials for the Jeep Wrangler JL and Gladiator JT models feature simple push-button operation, allowing drivers to quickly switch from highway cruising to off-road traction.”
