As for the front I wish I could hear it in person. Does it click like a bad CV joint or bind like when it's in 4wd turning.
No binding..... just several rapid clicks.... probably like what you think of a bad CV joint would do. It's an auto locker, they have some minor quirks. If you don't wheel, and you drive at higher speeds in 4wd, I'd leave the sucker open. You can always add a lunchbox locker such as an Aussie at any time without much fuss.

The No-Slip auto locker is the exception, it does not click whether you're in 2wd, 4Hi, or 4Lo. I ran a No-Slip in my front axle for probably 80K miles and never heard it click even once.

Jerry the link I provided to the Aussie is not the one you are speaking of?

You and I just have a difference of definition of terms Call me a snob, but I don't think of a limited slip as a locker. I don't think of a limited slip as being trail worthy. However, in this situation, we are talking about a Jeep that the owner says he only Mall Crawls with. Considering this, I would give the idea of leaving both diffs, especially the front one open. I understand these are my opinions and you are welcome to disagree with them.

No, the Aussie is a completely different locker and is not the same as the click-free Powertrax No-Slip locker I mentioned above.

The part number for the correct No-Slip locker for your front Dana 30 axle is 92-0430-2700 which can be found on
http://www.richmondgear.com/powertrax/jeep1ns.pdf

Pay no attention to the remarks on that page under the "NOTICE REGARDING FRONT AXLE APPLICATIONS:" heading. That generic warning does not apply to the type of 4x4 system used by the Wrangler TJ.

Uhmm, the "No-Slip" is an actual automatic lunchbox locker. It's not a limited slip

Do a little research before erroneously claiming the No-Slip is a limited slip differential. It's not a LSD, it's a full automatic lunchbox locker just like the Aussie, Lockright, and EZ-Locker is.

Maybe I'm from the old school.... No-slip was/has been nothing more than slang for a limited slip. I'll follow the link you posted and read up on this sucker.

"Old school" or not, and I'm very likely a lot older than you, I wouldn't claim something we're referring to as a locker is a limited slip without checking up on it first. Here's a decent review of the No-Slip locker for you to read... Powertrax No-Slip

I run the Aussie up front (d30) and love it. Just bought a Powertrax "No Slip" for the rear + a Superior CCE. Budget driven, (not to mention Jerry's positive comments on the USA made Powertrax) I expect it to have tolerable street manners, and outstanding trail manners. Thanks Jeep Forum...

Did you get the 30 spline or 27 spline CCE? If you got the 30 spline, you need a new carrier, and you won't be able to use the No Slip. I am going to assume you got the 27 spline though.

I run an Aussie up front as well and love it....... just not in my DD and not in a vehicle that I drive on slick/ice/snow covered roads in 4wd. The original poster is in Ohio (snow/ice/slick roads) and this is his none wheeled daily driver.

Thanks LuckRider, I appreciate your thought's...

Yes, I did get the 27 spline so I could stay on budget. I should be okay on 33's, at least I believe I will. 35's likely wouldn't be wise on the 27 spline CCE, eh?
