    Hello All,

    I've got the '79 w/ full-time 4wd. What are the guidelines about what should/shouldn't be installed for lockers in the front and rear?

    Thanks,

    These would just be my own common sense guidelines. Run what you want in the rear (this is personal preference territory). In the front I would either leave it open or run an ARB. Unless you have converted to part time, then it would be personal preference again. If it is still full time and you ran say a Detroit Locker it would be a real bitch to turn sharply because the front wheels are trying to turn at different speeds. At least with the ARB you can leave it off until you need it. (Buy Steve's D44, it is complete and already has the ARB [​IMG])
    Just my opinion.
