4Jeepn ARB or OX, just make sure the person who install's them has done a bunch.. and find out how many of them have come back in to be fixed.

1BLKJP If you are looking to go with OX (Which work smoking I might add), then you wouldn't even know you had a locker up front unless you had it locked in. If you go with a manual locker then while its disengaged there's nothing different than an open diff in either axle for you.

I run lockrights front and rear right now and I still don't have any more steering issues than normal with 35's on mine.

mr4x4 some time in the future I'll have air lockers but the detroits will work for now.
I'm looking at the arb's with the heavy duty air line
and for the compressor I thought Id get one that can air up my tires to.

killerbee I have a 5 speed so 4.88s it is.Not a big fan of air lockers to many parts "compresser,relays,air hose".I'm Thinking about OX locker.Its simple locked or unlocked with a cable.The cable seems a little stonger than a air hose.I'm going to keep the front diff open for now due to steering issues with lockers in the front.

mr4x4 ive got a auto and im running 4.56 with 33s
I geared it for 35's
but I think when I go to a 35 I will wish I went with 4.88's

the 5sp in my other jeep feels much lower with 4.56's than the wrangler

but for highway the 4.56 is betterfor a 3 speed auto

pismo61 If you have a 5sp. 4.88s.If you have an auto 4.56s. Lockers ,I have ARBs that would be my choice.Do have a dana 44? If not then a truetrac in the rear and powertrax noslip in front.
