Yk locker okd question with twist

Daughter's yj now has ome 36r springs and 31's She enjoys mild wheeling and 'should' get new gearing however I feel an aussie would suit her well. The only axle mod I've done on hers is to permanently link the left snd right front axle by engaging the pin therein. Front driveshaft is balanced and is always spinning. Axles are 35/30 stock in a pretty much unwheeled vehicle. My question; if i put ONE locker only in, front or rear? Not the place for explaining that a d35 isn't worth the investment.. Just wanna know whether to do front or back

Without going in to too much drama, it is better to invest in the front axle than the rear axle. With that, you may not like an auto locker in the front axle if you have locked the collar over.

my 2 cents

I have TJ shafts and an Aussie locker front and rear. They're basically invisible as long as your front drive shaft is balanced.

I much prefer the rear locked first, but with your restrictions I'd do the front.

I would and did do the front first. Especially where you're located, not like you've got a lot of snow or anything to contend with.
