What do you guys think of this locker set-up?

Looks like I will be setting up my lockers sooner than I thought. See my other posts if wondering why.

'92 YJ 5 speed, 6 cyl., 4:10 diff, 31" tires(may go to 32's some day)
Kicking around the idea of OX Locker(Maybe ARB) up front with True Trac Limited slip in rear. The main reason I have to do it now, front ring and pinion must be replaced.

Would like to have street manners as close to stock as possible or better. Really looking for the best combination of street and off-road use. What do you guys think? Any other options I should look at?

use the ox in the rear and the l/s in the front. or better yet do ox/ox or arb/arb

you will be sorry having the l/s in the rear instead of a true locker when you get in the touch sections.

True dat. Full locker should be in the REAR, IMHO.

I agree with the selectable in the front... if you've ever wheeled on hard surface's such as Moab slickrock with an autolocking (lockright) front, you'll definitely know what i mean... damn thing never unlocks! Sure you can always get out and unlock a hub (thats if you have hub locks) to make turns, but this is a PITA. If I was to buy only one selectable locker, i'd put it in the front.

I currently run a OX front and Detriot rear in my Isuzu. I used to run lockright front and no-slip rear and choose to go with the selectable front for the reason above.

IMO, autolockers (lockright, noslip, detriot) aren't that bad in the rear, even for a daily driver (which my rig is).

-Rob

EDIT: If you want the best of both worlds, onroad and off, and price isn't a consideration, I vote for OX/OX or ARB/ARB. You can't beat selectability.
