Anybody with a locker (front or rear) want to tell me how it handles on the road? Will it pull you off?

I have an Aussie locker in the front, I don't use 4wd on the road unless the snow is 4+ inches deep, and when it's that deep I'm not going fast enough to be pulled off the road.

A locker in the front wants to go straight which makes taking corners a bit different...but it's really no different a feeling than I get while offroading.

You're not going to drive down a patchy snow covered road in 4hi at 45-55 mph with a front locker engaged......well I'm not anyway.

I havent driven in the snow with it but It only locks when torque is applied.

Nope, it'll sping the front drive shaft, so if it's bent or out of balance you'll feel that in 2wd.

This may seem odd, I love rocks hate mud but love driving in snow the most...its the most unpredictable which makes it fun...shooting snow 30 feet in the air and doing ice-donuts never gets old...especially with a crowd watching

Thats why I hope Missouri gets blasted this year. When everyone else dreads snow, I'm the person that wonders why we didn't get more. And, why do they have to have plow trucks Even though they do make sweet piles to climb
