If he's got the money to go full carrier and E-locker to boot, good for him. Best of both worlds. Locked when you need it, open when you don't...

posi kit and weld will do the same thing..... sorta... poor man selectable locker lol....

I run a posi in the front, and welded it, I run low range off road, so it is 3 wheel drive when in low range, with power to the driver wheel, when I pull the cable, and the collar slides over, now I R lockededed... and ya do the front... regardless......

Started with some rust repairs ended in a SOA...

WOW I would have said rear over front if I was to only have 1 locker. I have ARB's F&R and I use the rear 10 to 1 over the front. Not that would lock a D35 either but take that out of the mix, I would go rear first. I have not had other such as lunchox type lockers. I only know that when I lock the front in it is VERY DIFFICULT to get the jeep to make turns, it wants to keep going straight. I do a lot of rock type trails and still very rarely need both locked up. I just did the Rubicon a few weeks ago and only locked the front twice for about 20 feet each time, I had the rear locked all day.

Again it makes it hard to make turns with front locked up on mine

I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

Sounds like you took some challanging lines.

That's kinda what I was trying to say before about locking the rear. If I could only have one locker. Which is usually how it is.
