I agree. I don't understand why so many Jeep enthusiasts toss out their full time like it's nothing. If it's your DD, then it's awesome to have for every day use on the road. Heck, I like it just for mountain driving because it helps tighten up the steering and glue you to the road better around all those curves. For snowy/icy weather, I wouldn't be without it. Good score on the d30, btw.

Yes, it snows in Texas.

i agree snow it really does tighten up the steering plus it will help make the new axle cheaper anyone want to buy an aussie?

Who is talking about a VC? We're talking the 242 here. It's an open-diff full-time, but it works really well and is seamless on the road, but for the improved handling.

Yes, it snows in Texas.

Oh man, we're off course here, and gumming up this thread. LOL What we were discussing is how a lot of guys who have the 242 will remove the option of using their full-time by installing a locker up front. I think an LSD in the front axle would be better for DD purposes, or a selectable locker if you've got the cash.

Yes, it snows in Texas.

LSD isn't a locker. Get Kanin's super 30, just make sure they aren't his crappy asian parts.
