Re: Front locker only..opinions?
Toyguy, if you need to run four wheel in the snow, I wouldn't recommend a locker in the front. I'm locked front and rear, and I live in western PA, so I know what the roads get like in the winter. The locker in the back isn't bad, its my daily driver, and I don't have any problems. For on road driving in the winter with the locker, I rarely put it in four wheel. When you do put it in four wheel it sucks to drive on the road. About the unlock, lock thing, the unless you get an ARB, you'll be running an EZ locker, or a Lockright. They're always locked, they generally only unlock through turns, atleast when driven correctly through the turn, or when you push in the clutch. The gears will over-run one another when one tire is being forced to spin faster, like the outside tire through a turn, so the gears will ratchet over one another, then re-lock once through the turn. By the way, not to sound sexist, its very feasible for a woman to drive with the locker in the rear. My girlfriend drives mine with no problem, and that is excluding the nine inches of lift on top of that. Hope this helps, if you have any more questions about driving with lockers I'd be more than happy to try and answer what I can.
