Getting a powertrax no slip...front or rear?

Like the title says, I am 90% sure I am getting a powertrax no slip. I am wondering whether I should get one for the dana 30 front or the chrysler 8.25 in the rear. My xj is daily driven and I would just like to have the added traction. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks

Wow what a truly unique post..... If its a daily driver i would think the rear would be better even though its not spooled together it still makes the steering a little tight. You will get so many different answers on this one it will make you dizzy, just go with your gut.

There are numerous front/rear locker threads and you should search for them, and read the different opinions.

I have installed a locker in the front axle of one Jeep and the rear axle of another and driven both on the 4x4 trails. A rear locker provides the greatest traction benefit. A front locker provides the best manners for on pavement driving.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Thanks for all the info guys. I'm efinitely leaning towards the rear to get the most bang for my buck since I doubt I'll be getting a second any time soon.

Just remember to never ever take your eyes off the road/street.......pay no attention to those 2 black marks and that chit eatin' grin in your rear view mirror.

Here's a decent video showing the advantage of a auto-locker. Forget that it says Eaton G80, that's just a brand/model name......PowerTrax No-Slip is a brand/model name.
