I did a little off-roading yesterday with a few buddies and we really all had problems with getting hung up and having the front wheels just sit their and spin, so i want to put a locker up front, in the Dana 30, the question is, will i notice any driving problems when 4wheel drive ISN'T engaged? or will the locker do something? i do mostly street driving but today i got really stuck and a front locker would have easily got me out, what a good one to get that won't break the bank?

I have a lockright up front in a '93 wrangler. Don't notice a thing when in 2wd.....I suppose a little less mileage (like 1/2 mile per gallon or something). Off road it is unbelievable....I can go places I never could before. No downside that I can tell yet.

Well, if you put a locker (other then an ARB) in the front of your YJ, the front drive shaft
and the left side axle will always spin, which really isn't a problem other than move moving parts and wear and tear.\
? I know this may be out of line, but when you were off-roading...did you undo you sway bars? They will cause a lot of
unnessasary will spin!
hope this helps
