bluvikng Got to go with the ARB's........they totally rock. I have a YJ with ARB's front and rear.........a little more money.......but well worth it in the long run. As stated above, just use it when necessary, and you will be fine.

IBTJn Most would say not to waste your money on a D35c with any locker...or even an LSD. I have a couple friends though that went S35 w/ ARB's and they haven't had any problems yet running 33's. One club member recently (a few months ago) finally broke his D35c running 35's. But he has wheeled that rig pretty hard for a few years now.

It might be wise to sit down and figure it all up. For my friends it was worth it to S35 their rigs w/ARB's. Perhaps it will be for you as well. I know it's worked out well for them (more than one or two I might add). I'm an ARB fan myself, but I think Ox has come a long way recently, too. And Ox's diff covers are bullet proof!

Good luck on your decision.

hazmat I'm probably going to end up w/ a truetrac in the rear and open in the front. would 4.10 's be good for highway would like to keep my 65mph rpms around 2500 w/33's

4Jeepn For snow covered roads if I had to pick I like just plain 4wheel drive. A full time locker up front will pull you right and left, at least it did in my TJ. A full time in the back is usually okay. Of course with any of the selectable one's you can pick if you want it on or off which is the best part. Buddy has a true-trac up front and a detroit in the rear, say the front is funky as well on snow covered roads.

hazmat so an air locker would be better even on snow ice and slick pavement than the truetrac ? I'm just looking to build an allround capable rig . If the ected is limited slip with the switches off would that give me greater control in winter my understanding was a lsd was better on road and alocker ruled in off road offcamber applications ? appreciate the input guys ?

Fapple Yes a buddy (after breaking axles a few times) upgraded to the super 35 kit... it has held up well for him. The trick is only lock the diff(s) if all else fails and when locked, go easy on the skinny peddle. And yes, I agree with 4Jeepn if you can go with the ARBs front and back, although the ected electric locker has a cool feature.... locked with the switch on and limited slip with the switch off.

4Jeepn ARB's for both, but I just like having those darn little switches to flip in mine. The super 35 is a good kit, Should be okay with 35's but still keep in mind to go easy on the gas.

mrbigjeep ok cool. i know Frank (fapple) on here said he wheels with a guy that had the 35 rear with a locker (on 35's maybe) and he snapped it but upgraded to the super 35 and hasn't had any problems.

04moneypit on here broke a ring and pinion i think. those are another weak point i guess

hazmat mainly street dd but would still like the capability for a couple of wheeling trips a year .
11-08-2006 09:03 AM
mrbigjeep i think it would hold up on the street as it upgrades the weak point. but why do you need a locker if your mainly on the street?

ox or ected or truetrac.

talked with a guy from jeff daniels jeeps in pa about upgrading my 30 and 35 with super kits and truetrac's . he recommended either an ox locker or an ected electric locker for the front diff and the truetrac for the rear. does any one have any input on either and would a super 35 hold up w/ 35's on mostly street driven rig ? thanks for any input!
