December 9, 2010My jeep is my DD and while lockers would be great I have noticed some folks have been installing limited slip front and rear. Just wondering if anyone is or has done the same. Im running 33`s with 3.73 gears but if I install new diff`s I will change to 4.10`s.

December 9, 2010I( ran a limited slip in rear axle of my CJ for years and had no problems with it. I ran a lockrite in the front which works well.
91 YJ with just enough mods to make me a danger to myself....
December 10, 2010I ran a limited slip in my xj, and a powertrax locker up front. You can run a lunchbox locker up front, and posi out back. As long as you don`t put it in 4wd on the street you`ll never notice it
December 10, 2010you can find used (in good shape) lockers for your front pretty cheap, if you shop around.
December 12, 2010So if I run a limited slip in the rear and powertrac locker up front. Will the powertrac locker(installed in the front axle) always be engaging and disengaging? Or will it engage and disengage only when power is being applied in 4wd? So in other words; on dry pavement will it drive the same way now if Im in 2wd? The axle is always spinning in 2wd or 4wd. So Im guessing it`s always going to be engaging and disengaging.
December 13, 2010The locker will only lock and unlock when torque is applied. So in 2wd you should never notice it. Then in 4wd it will lock and unlock. There are a few "lunchbox" lockers on sites like naxja that would be perfect for your application. Just be sure to check spline count, and do not buy one that is chipped, or visibly damaged. Do not use the 4wd on dry pavement, it`s just bad juju, undue stress is just that. For a dd rig, the powertrax type locker is a cheap, and easy upgrade, that will reward you with great traction gains. As far as bang for your buck, they in my opinion (which is just that, my opinion), are worth every penny
