Detroit 44 rear and ARB up front

My 05' TJ has a 44 in the rear and the 30 up front. I'm thinking of installing a detroit locker in the rear and a ARB up front. I would like some input on this using the 44 and 30

Thanks

I have a detroit in my rear 44. It will change the way the jeep rides and handles, but after a few days of driving it you will get used to it. There will be an occasional banging but I love when it does that and scares the crap out of people.

As for the front, I can't comment except that a selectable is the way to go in the front to avoid adverse driving affects.

ARb upfront is good idea. as with a fulltime locker in the front if you see snow covered roads.. it came make driving less than fun. Detroit in rear i fine on snow.. etc. As stated you will get the BOOM sound once in a while, and sometimes when down shifting on roads you may find yourself in the next lane but its part of the full.
