Yeah, that's what I observed at Moab - guys who were open were having to gun it so hard I was afraid they were going to suddenly get traction with a lot of wheelspin on and shear some teeth off an R&P. Nobody did though.

On my phone sorry. But he crawled over a rock and only had one tire planted. As well as turned into the rock. One cv was pulling the truck and it broke.

REAR will serve you most... Locker is used for climbing ultra steep, rocky or rutted grades. Going uphill, the vehicle weight (center of gravity) shifts backwards... and so the traction needs to be on the back tires.

Roughly a thou give or take, including the compressor.

Go on east coast gear supply if you need an exact number from the lowest price outfit.

ARB is your only choice for the front, short of lunchbox style.

If you're blowin all that money, might as well go ARB front and rear. Strong, reliable, and easy to install, since the wiring harness and the compressor are set up to control two lockers as easily as one.

But you can do a *lot* of good wheeling just locked in the back.
