    i've heard the ARBs are the best for daily drivers cuz you can turn them off when on the road and turn them on when you go wheelin.

    I am installing Detroits front and rear. I thought about leaving the front open, but figured the locker could really help me sometimes. But I would definitely go with a Detroit in the rear. An ARB in th front would be really nice, but they do require more upkeep and are quite a bit more expensive. And positraction or limited-slip up front won't do you much good at all off-road.
