Discovery II Lockers

What lockers should I use for a trail rig but still have good on-road characteristics?

What year is your truck, do you have a CDL which is needed prior to installing lockers? Also, Have you already rebuilt or replaced the front drive shaft to prevent it from failing?

It's an 02 and I already replaced the cdl with one from an 00 with the nipple to manual engage it. Haven't rebuilt the front drive shaft yet. Is there a lit for rebuilding the front drive shaft?

Do the front drive shaft before you head out on the trails. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you the PDF file for the rebuild.
As for the lockers, what are you thinking about using, what size tires will you be running and what is your budget?

airlockers. Trus are nice but you don't really want them on the street. Air will let you keep the stockish ride. I would think there might be some crap to deal with when the traction control and the trutrac engage at the same time but I could be wrong.

You don't know what your talking about. ARB's are nice, but expensive and useless when your compressor takes a dump. Tru-Tracs are cheaper, transparent on-road and off-road they work exceptionally well, especially with the traction control. If you get a tire in the air and the TC doesn't catch it, just step on the brake and they lock right up. And for toughness? I had one in the rear of a 240 Volvo sedan (Dana 20) that I dropped a Ford 302HO into (400hp/300ft/lbs). I ABUSED that thing, and that Tru-Trac worked flawlessly.

Tru-Tracs front and rear. Least expensive, transparent on-road, great off-road, intall and forget, always work, tough. No brainer.

Kinds of depends on the type of wheeling you do, how hard are the trails and your budget.
What will you be doing with your truck.
As for me, I run a T.T. in the front and a Detroit in the rear with H.D. axles and 4:11's.
For most people, T.T.'s front and rear are great, less expensive and will pull you thru most anything.

I'm mainly doing trails (mud/sand etc), going up steep inclines, and camping . Nothing as serious as rock climbing or anything. Also gonna put a snorkel on it and have "Cold Air Intake" stenciled on it for shits and giggles.

Tts front rear suck on snow roads and can be scary on snowy roads. Had a 4runner built and slapped 1 in the front and went like a beast in the snowy roads 4,+ deep snow etc and decided on my next 4rnr I'd go front and rear. Yeah wont do that again. If you dont see snow then yeah if so on road in snow learn the vehicles behaviors it can be u serving especially with ice underneath.
