I'm Having A Gear Swap Done On My 'wheeler Truck And Are Now Wondering If I Should Have Locker Or Limited Slip Differential Fitted At The Same Time, Which Is Best?


Answer:
If you are at all serious about trail driving then you should step for a locker. However, if a friend has a similar truck to yours with a locker fitted, ask for a test drive. The foundation for this is that with a locker installed, driving on the highway is going to feel – and sound - exceptionally different. On the pavement, a locker will invoke a whole orchestra of new sounds, from noisy tires to a bang noise from the back end.

Novices are habitually recommended to fit a limited slip differential as they are less noisy, easier to live beside and don't demand changing your driving style. Eventually, most new trail drivers will fit a locker as no other single modification will bring in a bigger improvement on on-trail performance and increased traction.

As you point out, fitting a locker or limited slip diff at indistinguishable time as a gear swap will save money on labor costs. Be careful to take into side your new gear ratio and install a compatible locker/limited slip diff.
