Locker for front vs rear for Tracker

Does one of you have experience with using a locker only in the front? I am in Arizona and do a lot of sand running.

Re: Locker for front vs rear for Tracker

I have done that in alot of my Jeeps. It works really well. I have said it before and debated it before, but in my tests and observations a front locked only vehicle will always do better then asimilar equipped rear locked vehicle. In addition, you dont not have any of the negative street characteristics of a rear locked vehicle. I do almost exclusly mud and tons of sand/ [img]images/graemlins/beach.gif[/img]

Re: Locker for front vs rear for Tracker

Well that can be a personal opion issue, BUT...
I have front & rear EZ locker's in my sami.
I used to have an FJ40 with a limited up front and lockright in the back. So alot of it depends on you.
The worst part about a front locker (to me) is your rig handles like a pig (when the locker is engaged).
The flip side to that is the rear locker does not affect your steering. But you have to put up with the the street maners with a rear locker.
Personally I would go with the rear locker.
But if you have a heavy right foot, you most likely will not like a rear locker. With a heavy foot it will/can have bad street maners. The best of both worlds (if you can aford it) is an ARB. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
