Short Term Locker

I am setup with D35 4.10's on a open diff and 35's. Yes, I want to upgrade the diff but just have not had time. Here is the scenario. My wife is taking the jeep to the Morongo Basin Search and Rescue Desert Run on October 6th.(Small event in CA) I would be there too, but I have to work. I am considering slapping a Lockright, or aussi in the rear just to get her through the obstacles without too much trouble. This event should not be too difficult.
Now for the question. Does she stand a better chance of breaking something with the locker in and using less gas pedal, or open diff and lots of pedal? I am going to do a super 35 kit in the future, and I realize there will be some lost money, but I want to make my wifes trip as successful as possible.

install it in the front D30, its a much stronger axle, D35 is not a strong enough set-up. if you want to look up more about using the aussie or lockrite use the search feature on this site there is alot of good info on the aussie locker. oh and welcome to the forum.

Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

Just keep them open for now. The SAR run is usually easily done with open diffs. Where there are hard spots, they always have a bypass. Open diffs will be fine for it.
