    I run a lock rite in the front on my dana 60. If your on the gas hard you wont steer in the mud. Mud racing can get exiting over this. I ran over some timing lights cause I could not steer out of it. Just regular 4 wheeling it can have an effect on the steering but, its well worth the trade off. Makes a big difference off-roading.

    I'm pretty sure Mudzer, and a few others have had less than sterling performance w/ the 1/2 ton "pop-rights" /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I could be mistaken, though.

    I have one in the rear. Haven't broke it yet. As noted, they make noise, and once in a while it will unbind with a big CLUNK! You'll wonder what the hell broke..Highway driving manners change. You have to learn to overcome the locked rears trying to push the truck around..looks like a brewsky too many until you get a handle on it. Also, quite a bit of freeplay due to the cross shaft/gear clearance. Mine is still in, but I think next time I want a locker, I'll go for the real deal...Detroit.
