lockers! what ya running and why?

Here's the grizzly link with front gear set.

Be forewarned the locker is likely back orderd I got lucky and mine shipped a couple weeks after I payed for it.

The Detroit locker might be stocked better. I went for grizzly because I pretty much flipped a coin and took the path less traveled

I don't know if the variance is regional or personal, but I do not think it is safe to assume that if you tell someone your rig is "locked" they will understand that it is sometimes locked and sometimes not. More clarification is needed if you actually want people to understand.
Hey, that's a good point... maybe it is regional. I know when I'm leading a large run we'll go down the line of rigs and ask anyone I don't recognize.. "you locked or open"? Typical responses are "ya, locked in the rear" or "I'm open" Maybe it's a slang in my area. I don't need to clarify spooled or welded cause you can pick those rigs out of the line up easily.

I can attest to this. I’m on 35s and it over powers the trutrac when you need it most. Both front and rear get overpowered when I snow wheel and on rocks and it happens a lot. Holding the brake just doesn’t cut it. Currently installing ARBs. The trutracs have been great for icy roads.

Power Trax no slip in my D30, open rear 8.25. In the past I ran Lock Rights but the No Slip truly is smoother.

I run a front spool with full hydraulic steering, if that is close enough. Sticky 37s, drive flanges.

No issues steering, the ram forces the knuckles over to where you want them.

That pushing/walking is why the selectable locker goes in the back, if you have one.

True. All gone.

If money was a concern I'd leave rear open and run a grizzly or Detroit in the front.

Sometimes the walking sideways is good it finds better lines then I pick

I'm using Power Trax no-slip also, and have no issues whatsoever.

Two walking is better than two digging going no where.

Can't imagine running no rear locker. lift a tire and you're basically stuck, no?
