Re: front axle&2wd low kit

I expect if you were to weld the diff or fit a locker on the front the extra strain on the drivetrain would lead to a lot of smashed axle casings.

Re: front axle&2wd low kit

I wouldn't weld that diff!!!!! I 've blown on up already with an open diff and 31's. I don't know if anyone currently offers a locker for the front. Being locked would put more stress on the diff housing. The thing to do is get a steel front housing and carrier assy. from an XL-7 manual tranny rig. Currently, I know of no 2WD Low setup for a track/Kick.

Re: front axle&2wd low kit

There is a kit available in the UK for fitting a Sammi T-case. The 2wd option can then be fitted to that. Personally I like my T Case attached to the back of the gearbox, less exposed joints to wear out. I just wish there was a lower high ratio available.

Re: front axle&2wd low kit

Fill out your Bio.... where you at? Deciding between the two depends on whether or not you get alot of snow & ice.... handling is way different...

Personally, I think that the lok-rite is the way to go.

Re: front axle&2wd low kit

ARB Airkockers are available for the front and rear diffs, I've got both. Rocky Road offers a 2wd low kit for the Kick.

Re: front axle&2wd low kit

If there is a two Lo kit, it won't be worth much if you weld the diff.

Re: front axle&2wd low kit

No, don't know anyone running the 2lo. ARB's front and rear is real nice although it can mean if you get stuck you are really stuck but then again it means I must have got further in the first place. Helps make up for the lack of articulation from the suspension as I only have the Old Man Emu kit. Great having a compressor onboard for reinflating after airing down. I reckon all fourby's should have front and rear lockers so you actually have true 4wd, the difference is amazing.
