Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Can the locking differential from the OR model be added to a X model?

Or am I better off finding an aftermarket unit?

There is no aftermarket locker available.

And if you could find an OR rear axle (and front diff) would could swap them out, but it would be controled by jumping the solenoid and not controled by a locker modual like in the off-road.

Your best bet is to buy an OR model. If you currently own an X model, wait for someone to come out with a rear locker...it's probably going to be a long wait.

Thanks. It's just something I may want to do down the road depending on how into this I get.

Getting rid of this one to upgrade to the OR model is not an option.

Or get a Ford 9" from a salvage yard and throw a locker in it. Of course it gets a bit more involved than that bu t Jordan did it.

Ah, but the 9" has a different bolt pattern, so you would have to swap the front too ;)
