If a Lcokrite is supposed to give you "differential" qualities in corners, and "locker" qualities when under power, which is more dominate.
For instance in a corner it will unlock so one tire spins faster, but under power it locks both side together.
So if you are under power (locked up), then turn the wheels does it unlock losing the locker benefit?
Or if you are turning (unlocked) and give it power, will it then lock up possibly affecting turning radius?
So is the locker attributes stronger than the differential attributes?

If you mean does it act like an open diff then NO. Even around corners coasting you'll hear it click-click-click. Get on the gas a little too fast and it'll push you through the corner at the least, and cause the whole Jeep to jump and shake violently at the worst.

I run those front and rear and they are defintely more of a locker. The front one never seems to unlock, even when turning. The back one clicks alot around corners and does lock up if you give it some gas. they do work well on the trail because they never slip.
