    LSDs are not designed for front ends. I'm not exactly sure why, but I know for a fact that they don't belong up front.....

    LSD dont work that well in the front because they are always engaging and disengaging every time you slightly turn the wheel. they wear out quickly because of this. I would recomend a locker. They last a lot longer.

    I have an Auburn Pro in my front..makes a big difference in mud, which is about all we have around here.....I don't run it on pavement with hubs engaged, so the locking/unlocking thing is not a factor.....I also have the Pro in my rear...no probs....I don't need a locker for the types of wheelin' I do...Lockers are harder on your parts on the street.....just depends on how you use your truck.....if I lived in rock country, I may consider Tonners and Lockers a necessity.....

    Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..

    Stay away from a True Trac in the front. My brothers is constantly unlocking when you really need it!

    I call them "limited grips", not limited slips!! [​IMG] Go with a locker if you are going to do it!
