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

JEEPN, the minor throttle movements will rip the wheel out of your hand if the wheel suddenly gets traction, both under acceleration AND compression braking! Remember, with one hub unlocked, the locker will never freespin because one 'tire' is forever without traction.

Hey, JEEPN. I respect any input. I fully understand what you're saying. What I'm saying is that if that one powered front front is spinning and all of a sudden gets traction you better have your thumbs clear of any steering wheel spokes. Really, if it's slippery enough to have the front powered then have both wheels powered. Otherwise, stay in 2WD. Cheers!
