Do a search,also check out the "stickys" lots of good info there! Start with the rear first, IMHO. Check out the reviews also!

If you have a Dana 35 in the rear you shouldnt lock the rear. You could lock the front with an automatic locker such as the Aussie and have pretty good results.

Both of you need to fill out profiles! It helps to know what you have. If the original post has a rear D35 then SuperD35 it.

look at the stickies under general offroad jerry has a great write up "why do i need locker i thought i had 4x4" i think thats what its called, i put an aussie upfront its great cant notice it on the road and off road it does really well, it was only 250$ and if i regear i can use the same locker, personally im waiting to put a selectable in the back until i regear so i only have to do it once

Go read that.

IMHO the best place to put a locker is in the rear but alot of people go for the cheap route and install an Aussie or similar up front - which is fine also...

depends on what axles you have and your budget, IMO if you have a D35 i would throw an Aussie up front and then save for a rear swap or S35 kit.

also, what makes you think you need lockers this bad, do you already have other mods???? lift, armor, etc....wheeling experience???

needing a new rig....

I am looking at lockers for this year, 44 dana in back, 30 up front. Regeared to 4.88 with auto tranny. BFG ATs (33X10.5). Have armour done. Thinking of Nth Degree TT to get a little more clearance under there. My LJ came with LSD. Need someting that can still be driven well on the road. Any suggestions.

IMO i have a great set up, especially for a guy on a budget...a selectable(ARB or OX) in the rear and an auto up front (Aussie or No slip).
