Re: Locker Question
Just getting into off-roading I would not suggest a locker as your first upgrade.
First you should wheel a couple more times to make sure you want to continue doing so, and then if you still like to wheel you can upgrade..
Many guys will disagree on what the first upgrades should be.. I think a Hi-Lift Jack, and a tow strap are among the first things I would get [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Since that's not much money next I would suggest a lift, and longer shocks to accomodate the lift.
Wheel it more, and see if your still having trouble in the same spot..
What tires are you running? The wrong tires will make you loose traction .. of course.. maybe getting a set of BFG M/T (since it's your daily driver and your just getting into it) the BFG are practicaly silent on the road, and produce great results off-road in the rocks, dirt, sand and mud.. I think they are the best all around off-road / street tire combo!
Wheel it and have fun then whatever you brake fix it, and upgrade what NEEDS upgrading at the start.. from there you will get tons of ideas on what you want done [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
