It’s been done before.

Think about it. Your ass won’t be pushing your jeep all over the place the front goes where you point it. Maybe a little less turning radius but it still works.

John currie does that exact setup in his rigs.

I'll never run a non selectable locker in the front. Last thing I want in a snow storm is my front wheels breaking traction while taking a corner.

Agreed that’s why I? have selectables front and rear.

Full time locker in the snow isn’t favorable in the front or rear. But besides the snow it can work on either end.

OK, last reply. Don't show me a video from the west coast.  Turning a front locked vehicle will absolutely break traction in the snow, and start plowing the front-end. In New England off-roading you want to locked in the back-end full-time, because the rear will break traction in a tight turns and bring the front-end around. Again, turning off a selectable front locker for tight turns in the woods keeps the vehicle from plowing straight ahead. Selectable front locker is also great, when you want to get out of the woods without breaking any more front-end parts because you are losing friends.  :rotflmao:

I ran a Detroit in the front and a LSD in the rear, never knew it was there unless I was turning into a parking lot (barley noticed) or it was in 4wd.  It never affected the road manors of the Jeep. But I have heard differently from others.  Maybe different brands, maybe tighter lockers, maybe some forget they are driving a jeep...

I lived through my 1st winter with a Detroit in the front of my TJ.  On pavement is fine in 2WD - don't notice it at all.

But with snow on the pavement in 4WD - I had to be real light on the gas going around a gentle curve or it would lock up and pull to the outside of the curve.  Going straight - if it locked, the Jeep would pull to the right (the way the road is crowned).  Just my experience

The jeep does more sitting than driving but still with being in the northeast I'm gonna go with selectable up front. She does see some road time. Still doing research and debating on which to go with.

Might as well throw in my two cents. Once I bypass the BCM I'll have zero complaints about the factory e lockers

Look at the "True Trac" LS by Detroit . Its a great front end unit. Not a complete locker , but it will eliminate all of whats be talked about in this post.   FjR68

School me on the Ox vs ARB for the front locker (Ox is a cable versus an air actuated Solenoid vs An E-Locker with an electric Solenoid) - The non-selective Detroit locker I have in the front sucks in the snow on the roads (although works great on the trails)

I already have a compressor and air lines for the ARB in the rear (I have some experience with compressed air  :wink:)  My current set-up with a front Detroit works fine for the trails - but I prefer my old YJ set up with a Detroit in the rear and ARB selectable locker up front for slippery roads
