Re: another locker question?????
Well I know people out there have a lot more experience then I, but no one's replied yet so i'll throw you the wisdum i got. I have a sammi that is locked front and rear, never driven it in the snow, wouldnt want to. If your going to lock it up, you can do your rear first then your front after winter. Yes it wears your tires out faster, but thats the life of a kick ass off road vehicle so just rotate them every 3-5k. I drive my audi's thru the winter and they all come with differential lock ups that automatically shut off after 15mph. theres a reason for that and I found out when one of my older audis had a manual f/r locker switch, I kept going sideways down a hill with ice and couldnt get it to straighten out until I unlocked it. Very un nerving to say the least. As for just learning to run lockers, no its not a huge change at all. I can hardly notice the new sammi that is locked front and rear on the road in the rain I might get a squeel on a tight turn, but its rare and it only makes me smile when it happens. This new sammi is Heidi's so I dont drive it much, but she loves it and has had no problems driving it like that either. Hope this inspires you. Max
