My Eaton e locker for the rear was $800 + new axles $600 and labor....Now I am considering selling my rig and buying a Rubi....JEEP = Just Empty Every Pocket....
lol. Dibs on anything that will fit on mine!

It does seem to be a constant case of 'what do I do next'

I'll probably do lockers eventually. I figure since I have the LSD in the rear, it would probably be best for me to lock the front first. Skid plates are next for me though. Every time I hear that crash on the bottom, I think OH CRAP! Hope nothing broke there.

That is the cool think about wheelin these typ of trails. You quickly find out what your jeep needs. Some have enough lift, but no locker and some are locked, but bottom out. Having a locker (or two) is huge. The first time I did this trail was unlocked and I didnt make it, now its no problem. As mentioned, everyone gave it a heck of a try, but a couple had to go around. This trail section 2n17 is rated difficult, but its a mild difficult.

I'm strongly considering that one, but it conflicts with a Poker tournament I want to go to.

It sucks having conflicting hobbies! My Poker crowd doesn't like my Jeep so far...
