    If you have the money, IMHO some sort of either electric or air locker in the front is the way to go. This will allow you to engage it when you really need it and disengage it if you have to make a sharp turn. Just my .02 worth.

    I wouldn't put an ez locker of any type in the rear differental of a truck that sees alot of pavement, or hard driving on pavement. The reason being that your using a carrier that was desgined for low stress open diff. duties. I've seen the carriers explode on the street. It just can't take the thrust of a locker.
    In the front I use a lock right, however I'm very easy in rocks and around corners. The u-joints are the weakist link. I'm also running chromoly axle shafts. Ideally a locker you can lock & unlock would be perfect for the front but at a retail of $600.00+install. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
