bottom line is this.

People who say a locked front is an issue can't drive in inclimate conditions, period.

Infact, if you can drive, there isnt anything you can do to your rig that will make it too dangerous to drive safely. (proper mods that is ofcourse you could do some dumb **** to it and screw it all up but you get where this is going)

I have an auto locker in the front and a welded rear and I'm not crying in every thread about how it handles because its fine, once you can drive properly its fine.

The bad news is 99% of the people on the road cannot drive and they think because they passed the 5 minute road test and haven't wrecked yet, they can drive.

99% of them haven't had to do anything but play follow the leader, or lock up the brakes because someone pulled out infront of them.

this isnt driving.

You'll be fine if you lock it, just don't drive like an ******* its a jeep not an indy car.

The number 1 issue in winter is people driving too fast. Why are they driving too fast?

2 reasons. 1 they are an idiot and don't belong on the road period.

or 2, they are piss poor at time management so they have to "rush"

There are two kinds of people... those that can drive in snow with an auto locker, and those that can't. :-)

I used my front auto locker in the snow today. 37 kittens instantly exploded.
