    I'm gonna say it now cause God only knows where this thread is gonna go but auto lockers are generally frowned upon here, ESPECIALLY in the front diff...

    I have one of those in my rear diff. Works very well, but would get a locker if I were to do it again. It would be good in the front, agreed.

    You CV axles wont hold up well to extra stress from getting a locker and/or bigger tires. If you want a locked front axle, you might want to look into a SAS.
