    cant do the winch, the offroad bumper is already too much weight on front and i have to upgrade to 700lb coils for that. and it was the lightest one i could find.
    i think i am going to go with tru trac. they have good results and last , and a company here in town can order them and install them. still alot of money but worth it i think. what do u mean selectable locker IMHO? u mean i can turn off on highway? who makes this?besides toyotas crappy way to expensive lsd.

    A selectable locker is a locking rear/ft that is connected to a switch in the cab that has on/off switch...selectable.

    You do not want to even think about running a locked rear or ft. on pavement, turning would be a real bitch.

    ok well i have looked around and no one has a selectable for this truck except arb and toyota. will it really be that bad to put the tru trac on since it has no switch. they have had good results with it. will it cause more wear on tires? it is suppose to be the best for street in the auto locker world.

    If you dive sensibly you won't have any trouble with a locking rear diff. I don't know how old you are but the cars from the 60-80's used posi trac and were fine. Don't make a hard right or left turn and hammer on it. You will know and feel. You obviously have enough insite to ask questions before you make a step of this size so I will assume that you will be fine with the locking rear.

    yea that is why i am asking so many, cause i dont have 1000 bucks just layin around for this. but with my health and siezures and headaches i just cant afford getting stuck out in the middle of no where when fishing or checkin around the river and what not. hhhhh, i just might have to go with arb. see then i have to worry about the air compressor goin out, it gettin damaged somehow, or simply wearing out over time. and im sure it will be out of warranty when it does shut down. i do drive sensibly im not a race car driver.plus getting these installed are way expensive around here, especially when if it has a switch that needs to be installed like arb does. well i really appreciate everyones input and knowledge, thanks so much guys. this is a great thread and i have learned alot. im writing arb and see what the best they can do me for.

    I would think they were extremely tuff. Look at the trucks they go on and the abuse they put them through. I wouldn't think getting wet would bother them, they are used very widely and on some serious rigs. The trails they are used on are very rough and I am sure there are water crossings. For what you need I belive almost anything you get would suffice. If you use a reputible company. ARB is well know and proven.
