I've got a 2000 TJ Sahara with a rear dana 44 with factory limited slip. I run 31's and 3.73 gears.
I want to add some traction to the front, but need a little advice. I care about road manners, this is why I like the limited slip in the rear (i've had a powertrax no-slip, and didnt like the extra backlash)
I have heard, that because your never (usually) in 4wd on the pavement, that a lunchbox up front is barely noticiable. Also, the extra backlash isnt a concern because i'll just be using when I wheel.
I can get a dana 30 vari-lock (like what comes in 00 and up grand cherokee's with limited slip) for the same price of an aussie locker for the front. Advantages for this are that it wont lock up, shouldent effect my steering any when wheeling, and should be really good in the snow.
I live in Utah and do have to deal with snow in the winter, also alot of my wheeling is in the mountains around here with dirt, sand etc... but Moab is where I really love to go, and is where I like to focus my mods for.
What do you think?
