I use mobile 1 75W-140 synthetic gear oil so it should be as quiet as possible. A little clicking will not bother me honestly. I will have a super 10 or super 44 (not sure yet) series flowmaster dumped underneath so I will not be able to hear it anyway LOL.

That is a good thing considering we have full time hubs.

I have a 2002 4.7 V8 Limited with selec trac. I have a rare beast. Most selec trac WJs are 4.0 I-6 Laredos. It has no skid plates, tow hooks or hitch but it has a trans cooler on it LOL.

The cost to benefits is just not worth it for me. An extra $1000 for a Ox locker or and ARB with the onboard air is just way out of my budget right now.

I ran lockrites and detoits in the front before. Chance of understeer is quite a bit greater. Limited slip is much friendlier on road.
