Need some opinions on front/rear locker combo

Looking to obtain a hpd30/8.8 axle combo. 8.8 has LSD and then put an elocker in the 30.

Please give opinions, pros, cons whatever is welcome. Even flames.

This is on a DD, say once or twice a month crawler.

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

Be careful with the LSD in that 8.8. Like the 44a, a lot of the 8.8's out there have totally worn out lsd's. Rebuilding the LSD is still cheaper than a locker, but it's just something to look out for.

95 Limited Chargold ZJ 5.2L -5.5" lift (IRO, Ironman, and RC parts), 33" BFG M/T's, 15x8 procomp crawlers, 242 swap, 2 12" subs, 1000w amp, cherry bomb, full skid package, Kevins rear stealth bumper clone w 3/4" D rings, Rlcwelding front bumper w 3/8" D rings, XRC-8, front tow hooks, 2 daylighter fairlead lights, 2 daylighter windsheild lights, 2 55w driving lights, OBA, Cobra 18 CB, dual 4' whips, RC disconnects, smittybuilt jack, optima yellowtop.

Use the svt clutch kit in the 8.8.

The e-locker, the newest model, for the d30 is the strongest locker currently on the market.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I have Detroit True Trac in my D30 front--Love it!!

I have Detroit No-Slip in my D35c rear--don't love it, don't hate it!! It does it's job and functions properly, just wish i had an e-locker or selectable something back there rather than the full time. I think if i had the selectable version I'd get better mileage too, but 18 on the open road ain't bad i guess considering 4.5" higher and 32" Maxxis Bighorns.

I have a detroit auburn ected selectable locker in my d35. Pain to setup, but great ever since.

Don't fear the regear.

Finished 4x2 --> 4x4 conversion.

I ran a SVT LSD kit in my YJ w/8.8 and loved it! It was great offroad and only gave me a little trouble on snow covered roads.

Thank you all. I think I'll go for it then. Also rat, thanks for the heads up on the svt clutch kit.
