Powertrax No-Slip Front and Rear????

I think I've decided on putting a no-slip in the rear but I'm not sure what to do about the front. I'm worried about killing my turning radius on the trails...would it be worth the extra $100 to put a no-slip in front instead of a lock-right??? Or should I just go with the rear and leave the front open?????????????

Do both. You don't lose as much as you think.

Yep

Do both. I put a LockRight up front. Having front and rear lockers off-road is a dream come true. Excellent traction and your only draw back is on occasion you have to back up a little, and continue on. The traction is well worth this little inconveince. Save the money up front, but definately get the No-Slip in the rear.

Here's some info: http://users.adelphia.net/~jrtdogbone/dana30.htm

Good Luck

I have the lock-right up front and it is the most amazing thing that i have in my jeep. I think the lock-right is the best locker for the D30 if you want a cheap and really reliable locker. I still have to upgrade my D35 to something better but once the money rolls in that will be first on my list.

BTW- Hohw does a Powertrax no-slip handle in the D35 w/ (look in sig)?
