    I have a question about lockers. The guy I bought the blazer off of said it had front and rear lockers. I took it offroad for the first time yesterday and got stuck. The left side was off in a rut and the right side barely on the ground. If it had lockers should the left side have spun? The right side tires were the only ones spinning, nothing on the left. I thought that lockers would make all 4 wheels pull. Thanks

    yeah, lockers will not allow only one tire to spin. sounds like it may have a limited slip or be full open. If I were you, I would open the diffs and take a look for yourself.

    What is the easiest way to find out if I have lockers or not?

    Easiest way is to pull off the covers and take a look. Take a look around at peoples pics, I'm sure someones got pics of locker and such, To help you figure out whats in there.
