A d60 or 9" has more strength, and if i was running any bigger tires i would have to go that route. At that point i perfer an OX locker as its all mechanical, ARB have to much to em for my taste, unfortunatly with a 9", ARB is only selectable available, Wyatt will tell you I'm a puss, but I perfer 'simple minded'

In the rear 9" i run a detroit which works really well and makes for cool sounds while turning sharply at the mall.



I am guessing with lockers you want to be simple instead of
being complicated. Like with ARB you have air compressor and air tubes. The
less moving part the better.

Thats how I feel anyway, others dont mind. The simpler the better as far as I am concerned, if it wasnt impossible to steer locked, I would spool the front!

Ok I am just trying to figure out
what to do when I get my sh!t regeard,
Looking to lock the front and back. Because I have sport version which is just
open. I am wondering if I should get ARB and back Or get ARB/ Detroit in the
back. So i know if the air compressor fails in the front I know I have a least
one locker.

I would absolutely go detroit in back, i love it. If you can hamdle being a BAMF and squeaky tires every once in a while, Detroit is for you.

No, its a mechanical locker, no wires, no lines, no nothing, just a ratcheting type system that engages when you're on the gas and when you le off it also lets off and the wheels spin free.

No problem on questions man, i was right there not too long ago, It all about the journey

Well youd have to have a real shitty axle or a helluva lot of power to break an axle on a corner, but yes, you let off around corners for a smooth transition, or you gas it and chirp tires and leeaan!

I thought the biggest rule was to buy your axle before taking the other off?
