    ive got the 203 and contemplating running a truetrac up front in my 10 bolt. im kinda curious if being fulltime is gonna affect driveability if i run the true trac up front.

    truck specs in sig, any other comments are welcome.

    Do you have locking hubs up front or drive flanges?

    If you have the flanges, then yes it will affect the way it drives...

    203 full time + true trac in front + locked in all the time = part time tcase kit for 203 to be safe.

    yeah i see what yall are sayin.

    i daily drive this truck and wheel just about every weekend.

    but i did order at milemarker part time shaft kit this morning. so ill have that taken care of.

    right now im kinda between the true trac and something like an ez locker/lockright setup

    Go for the full locker instead of a limited slip.

    My Power-Loc couldn't pull me up this hill. The driver's side tire kept coming up and spinning while the one on the ground didn't move. I ended up winching up...
