Post Spools on the street

How bad is it to have a spool on the street? It would be a cheap alternative to a locker in the front and I can just unlock my hubs on the street and then when i want all the traction lock them in off road. How would one be in the rear also? I'm sure there would be hella tire wear but could be alot cheaper especially for a dana 70.

A spool on the front wow lol. if you unlock the hubs when on the road wont affect you but when you have them locked turning will be a pain, not to mention if not on like slick surface will be hell on the turning u-joints. I personaly wouldnt do it. Spool on the rear well cant unlock that for street driveing so when makeing turns would be skidding a tire every time makeing tires wear down fast. Off road would be just fine. Basicly the ARB and the OX Trac lockers are like spools but can activate and deactivate them, where with a spool on the front would have to get out and lock the hubs and if stuck in deep mud sounds like no fun. I would buy a locker.

Jeep what else matters.

spools are for racing in a straight line.youll never get turned on street use especially if you have oversize tires.i agree a locker is the best way to go
