Giving 'Cause your location was probably the biggest mistake you could have possibly made.


An auto locker in the front won't engage in 2wd, and you won't notice it on pavement. If you're driving in the snow you just need to just adjust your driving style, like try not accelerating while you're turning, or the front will lock up. I've done it and didn't lose control of the vehicle like some people claim, you just need to make sure you have a good grip on the wheel because it's going to want to return to center.

I just don't see that as expectable for a daily driver, I wouldn't even like it on a trail rig. The option of be able to turn when you want is kind of a cool one. What if you need to accelerate while turning?

Then hold onto the wheel and accelerate. It's not that you can't it's just that if you're in 4wd the front axle will lock and the wheels will try to return to center, which if you're using 4wd when you should (not dry pavement) isn't an issue. A lot of people make a big deal out of it but it really isn't bad, I've never had my Jeep push through a turn because of the front wheels being locked, but I also don't try flying through corners in the snow.

Auto lockers must behave differently than selectable. If I am on a slick surface and lock my front ARB I not going to be able to turn much it any. Even on a surface were I do get traction the ability to turn is greatly reduced.
