i didnt get a chance to install it all at one time but im going to say maybe 2 and a half hours it wasnt long at all and that was with pulling my s&b airbox. but it was defintly helpfull having a lift but not needed. as far as the relays i didnt have to adjust them they locked up as soon as i turned the dial
For those of you that are still waiting to install your locker bypass, it would probably be best to mount the control box last, so if the relays need to be adjusted, you don't have to go through the hassle of dismounting and remounting the control box.

I test and adjust each unit before it ships out, but sooner or later someone is going to have to make an adjustment. I just want the install to be as hassle-free as possible so it doesn't waist your time. I'll be making a note about this in the future installation instructions.

I am loving this mod. I am using lockers in both 2wd and 4 Hi pretty regularly. Winter, deep slushy snow, its more of get out of a situation than crawl. Plus instant engage disengage.

The quality was great and the install was easy. Hardest part was find a place for the control center. Otherwise, click click boom!

Anyone had any issues with warranty after installing this?

I think I am out of warranty? 64k miles and 3 years? Never took my truck to a dealer. Magnuson - Moss act should force the dealer to demonstrate that the bypass was the issue. Given it's a unique harness, unless it's a short in the smart bar or an actual locker issue, it shouldn't be related?

im sure they would find a way to say this caused issue with axle, steering, driveshaft, transfer case, if you ever had one... or just remove it before you ever bring it to any dealer or put it on a tow truck..... no trace.

Power Train warranty doesn't cover second owners either!

Pretty sure it would void any warranty, since it bypasses all the "safety" checks such as the 4L requirement.
With that said. If it was removed before service, I doubt it would be a problem.

What was the install like? Since I know you have a 2018 like myself and have installed it. If it requires no cutting/splicing then it would be easy enough to un-install for dealership work without a trace. And if that's the case, then I am interested.

This sounds like an awesome solution. Please add me to the list (2018 PW).

I've been waiting for another person that was suppose to update their kit, but I'm not sure if that will ever happen.

Thanks!

You’re added to the list. It’ll make your lockers work and stop the flashing locker lights, but I’m not sure how it will effect your SERV 4X4 light.
