I have a 18 JLU Sahara with Dana 30 front and 44 Rear axles. I just ordered a set of factory Rubicon 44 assemblies with E-Lockers.
If I buy the Locker switch panel and the 2 harnesses. Will there be an existing plug in the factory harness to plug in the switch panel ? Or will I need to wire it up myself ? And if there is a connector, where do I wire the locker harnesses to the vehicle ?
Also, are the track bars the same for the Rubicon and Sahara ? I am not worried about the front, since I have a Steer Smarts system in the front, and a MOPAR 2" lift.
Thanks for any help....

It would be easier to wire the lockers with some aux switches or voswitch. If you don’t minds what they set you back?

You may need the Jeep (BCM) reflashed to let the system know your Jeep has lockers for the factory style locker switches to work. I don't think they are directly wired to the lockers (just like everything else on new vehicles). Like others said it would be easier to wire them to the aux switches. Plus that way you could just lock the front locker if you want. Rubis can't do that :)

JLU Rubicon, JLU Sport, upgrades in progress!
X2 on wiring them to the Aux Switches, no nanny's telling you when you can and can't lock the axles!

ETA: the wire harness for the lockers is available from Mopar or Quardatec, sort of expensive though for one connector and two wires.
Locker wiring (you will need two)

Track bars are the same, verified when I installed mine.
