I just got a 94 wrangler yesterday and i'm new to the jeep thing; so what front axle do i have and Whats the CHEAPEST front locker on the market??
I only off road every once in a while and i want to stay ahead of those fords/chevys
Locked is locked. For on the cheap a locker that go in place of your spider gears will work fine, vs say the ARB which are great. If your only going a few times, do ya really need one? Also if its a daily driver and see snowy road a full time locker in the front can be a nightmare.

i would just go open. not many people accually need a full locked front axle. and not many d30's can really handle a full locker.
94 yj, 4" procomp lift, 3" body lift, sliders, cshr corners, d44 e locker rear swap, 35" bfg at's, 4.10 gears, crown 7 layer brake lines, jks discos, jks track bar disco, 97cherokee 4.0 swap.

dont waste the money on a d30 to put a limited slip in there....get a locker......a lockright actually has decent street manners an they are cheap......dont go gettin an arb or a detroit and puttin it in a d30........what an unworthy investment
"its a jake thing you wouldnt understand"
01 tj, custom 4 link f/r, no track bars, 44/9"combo and some 39 tsls on rockathons
Don't do a limited slip because it is only a tiny bit better than an open diff. It requires a little more finesse and foot work to make it a good option.
For your Dana 30, you should probably go with an Aussie locker as the cheapest and BEST route. Your steering will be limited while crawling.
If you have a 4 banger, then just throw that Aussie in your Dana 35 and stay off the skinny pedal (don't spin your tires). D35's, 4 bangers, and lunchbox lockers are okay as long as you dont drive like rusty wallace off road.
If you're trying to stay away from ford and chebys then you need to go into narrow areas. Otherwise, worry about yourself and not the Jones's.
