I don't know how a lunchbox locker would be in the back, working all the time, so I was thinking maybe a TrueTrac in the back, Aussie up front? Any help & suggestions?
I think my combo is awesome in the snow. I have the factory LSD in the rear D44 and a No-Slip in the front D30. I used this in Michigan for 9 winters. And I ran it in 4WD in snow covered roads quite often.

Just wondering, as I grew up in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor.

So I live in texas and my old CJ5 is being hopped up a bit while I am deployed , I have an open AMC 20 with 3.31s out back that has served my 258 well even after a rebuild and 2 barrel carb.

I am Having a shop put in a TBI 350 and AX-15 tranny and weld my tubes I stay on pavement for the most part unless I am haveing a spur of the moment hey lets go under the muddy bridge and puddle hop I have gotten stuck before just cus out of my 4 wheels only 2 spin with my open diffs, my question is what would I do better at getting , I want my rear tires to both spin when i get on it , but still have road manners . I am not looking to rock crawl just to know I will have better traction if I need it

Also how difficult is it to install these things and if it has to be done by a pro cost of install?

Would I need sumthing up front to help both wheels spin as well even tho I dont use it in 4wd often?

You revived this thread to post an almost unreadable question? Take a 1/4 second to find the punctuation on your keyboard- people here might be more apt to respond with answers...
