Great article! Told me exactly what I needed to know! My next question is...what is Dana? I see it all the time! But don't know what they are talking about.

How a differential works

^^ what happens when you get swirly with a stock TJ and find out just how nice it woulda been to know the brake touch trick lol.

|ElColo||Wow. That was probably the best thing I've read on any of these forums, and there is some good stuff out there. I'm surprised I never learned that break trick back in the day. That would have save us a lot of effort in a couple of situations. And being as I live in Idaho, where we drive on very icy river roads 4 months out of the year, I think I'll pass on all the LSD and lockers and stick to the stock setup for now. If I get stuck, I know where the brake is.|

So a manual locker would be more ideal for a daily driver right? I think an LSD would be better to start until I hit more challenging trails but a locker in the front axle because I have the dana 35 in the rear? IDK I'm new to the jeep scene so I need to learn my stuff.
very helpful thread by the way, thanks a lot

|Jack Straw||Great post! I knew the end effect of a 2wd vehicle being effectively 1wd in poor road conditions, however I never knew the full explanation why. Thanks.|

Jerry my next add-on is a suspension system...do you have another listing that describes the complete suspension system with shocks and what the parts and terminalogy are like you did with lockers? Like why do I want a sway bar(just throwing out buzz words I see in the ads) I am think about either 2.5 lift Rancho complete suspension system with shocks RANR1039R9
or Skyjacker 2.5 inch Value Flex Lift Kit with Shocks by Skyjacker - TJ253K-SVX-N
It is about 3 hundred difference and is the bang worth the buck?

|Jerry Bransford||That rear-end waggle is a non-issue, it's so minor that I pretty much stopped noticing it... only my wife noticed it but then she complains about imaginary problems that I can't hear, feel, or detect... so let's just say she's sensitive to such things. Definitely not a safety issue, just a minor occasional trait of having an automatic locker in the rear of a Jeep. And the more you drive with it, the more you learn how to drive to minimize, if not completely eliminate, the minor quirks of a rear locker. The only time I would not want a rear automatic locker is if I had to drive on icy roads or icy trails very much.|
