Somebody here at work has kimchi. Seems to be a love it or hate it thing. I hate it. It ranks right up there with balut on my most disgusting foods in the world scale.

you crack me up puck. I am almost willing to bet you everything in my bank account that you still have that hose clamp holding up your passenger side window. I can come to this conclusion because of how long you drove with a piece of plastic on the window.

There are many different types and spice levels of kimchi, I wouldn't write it off completely, the **** is like Korean salsa, all different varieties.

Everything that is in his bank account, so like the $2 he has left after buying the lockers, haha

LOL, in that case, when you buy your stock ford, just look under it, or come look at either exploder in my driveway before I build my new steering. It's a crappy stock ford design. Actually it's 100% fine for stock suspension and driving on the road, long travel and using all the suspension, it's ugly!

No, YOU shouldn't... It wouldn't add anything to your dirt road cruising capability and just screw up your street driving. If you do it on the front, you'll be pushing on your dirt roads when in 4wd. (from what I hear, I haven't locked my hubs yet to go find out first hand) If you do one in the rear you'll probably love it in the dirt but it'll just piss you off on the street. I don't think you're "offroad" enough to actually enjoy the pros over the cons of going locked at either end. How often do you ever lift a tire in the air on yours or end up in soft where you actually are close to getting stuck? Just my opinion... Do as you please...

I agree. If you want a locker spend the cash for a selectable unit.

And Greg, yes i still have the hose clamp in place.

numerous times I have been bested by situations where my open diffs just let a tire spin in loose gravel and i start to dig.

Seems to happen alot more with mt 5000 pound V8 truck than with my lil 4cyl TJ.

I was under the impression that auto lockers were quite well mannered on the road, and that especially in the front they are fairly unnoticeable unless you are driving on ice and snow or slippery street conditions, and also that they make a heck of a difference when you actually need it.

I looked it up once. There are over 180 different recognized types of kimchi. I have tried about 5. Each time I thought it was disgusting. However, I must admit that they were all in the North West region of South Korea so as it is made differently in different regions there might be something out there. As it sits, I stand by my original statement.

selectable lockers are the best of both worlds. You get the open diff on the road and locked for off road. There are a bunch of people that run a selectable in the front and a limited slip in the rear.

Auto lockers can be well mannered on the street. It all depends on the driver. A front auto locker is invisible on the street as an auto locker only locks when torque is applied to it. As Khris said, up front, they make the front end want to push when driven in 4WD. Out back, if you can teach yourself to not give it gas around corners, they are pretty invisible too. They have been known to unlock violently on the highway as the pressure from bind becomes too much for the springs to keep it locked. In a TJ with a flexy suspension it could be a problem. In a bigger rig, the effects are less noticable.

Do you air down and if so, do you air down low enough?

I'm assuming he has manual hubs so on the street it shouldn't even be spinning.


Just what I've heard... I have no first hand experience, I could just go lock my front hubs and find out but I figure I'll know soon enough once the hoopty is built.


My 1st hand experience with the locrite... When not on the gas and turning they click very loud. They sometimes also bang hard when getting on the gas as they lock up. Loud enough that it'll scare the crap out of you and make you think something is wrong the first time it happens. If mid turn you let of the gas it'll pull you harder into the turn. If coasting into a turn and mid way you gas it, it'll bang and jerk you straighter out of the turn. Will you loose control? No... But I didn't let just anyone hop in and borrow my old jeep cause of the locker. Before, I didn't care who borrowed it. You have to know how to drive it cause it's not "normal"...

Also, if you're driving in the rain, be CAREFUL! I think a lot of people over exaggerate the affects of a locker on the road but when it's wet out, everything you've heard is true. It doesn't take much to accidentally end up sideways or backwards. Obviously rain here isn't often though...



Personally, from what I understand your usage of the waggy, I don't think it's a good move but again, it's your choice. Personally, I'd just air down lower and keep your speed up a bit more if possible in the soft.
