Depends on the situation but I prefer Cable lockers then Auto/welded then Electric and finally air.

**** an air locker. Too much **** can go wrong with them out in the middle of no where. Cable lockers are stupid simple. Auto lockers are ok but the ones I have driven are sometime in predictable and sometimes are kind of harsh when they engage. Lunch box lockers are cheap and are usually fairly predictable. I like my welded rear because it is highly predictable and there is nothing there to go wrong. For a DD, I'd do lunchbox lockers or a cable locker, like an OX locker. Just my opinions, but I've been around most of these lockers.

OX lockers are really really nice.

I'd think so. Full case so it ditches the weak carrier, simple, and all mechanical.

Mustang wheels look surprisingly good:





Went to dinner with the GF and he parked next to me, I think there was a meet up at one of the restaurants because there were like 3-4 JKs with winches etc, and two TJs all decked out. Then me and him, lol.

Buddy's TJ and the XJ



I can't wait to see his D35 explode with those 35s on it.

If I did that he'd never get them back and he knows that.

Idk if you ever decided on a new name. Due to the snorkel and the lift height, I'd say "Blue Lagoon". Just a thought
