Re: Top 10 Things said by new locker drivers
Just switched to 4.56's and a detroit in a dana 44 rear 3 weeks ago and am really impressed with the detroit's smoothness. Compared to the lockright I had for 3 years I would think I have an open diff on the road. The lockright was just fine, but it really let you know it was there on pavement tight turns,parking lots etc and required coasting into tight spots. The detroit's quiet locker design is outstanding. Rarely hear a pop or click.
Anyone thinking of a locker should go detroit. And if you've suffered from anemic jeep syndrome, 4.56's are sure the ticket to put some bounce back in your step.
