Re: Will this combination of locker suck in the snow?

I have to agree. If you're going to lock one end part time, lock the front with the ARB and the rear full time. What will happen is you'll have the front end tires wanting to turn the same rate all the time. To do this, one side will have to slip, which means no traction, which means little control. Steering is very important on the snow, moreso than taking off. If you are set on locking the front full time, leave one hub unlocked when driving on the road. Braking is also important, good thing to keep in mind.
