    Well, yes and no- once you know how to run them you'll usually only know they're there when you need them. My 8,000lb M715 with Rockwells and Detroits saw about 7,000mi street driving with lockers and it was very polite. However, if you have the funds to go ARB and the installation cost...DO IT! Open as open can be then full on locked up at the flick of a switch.

    So has anybody ran the Ouverson Engineering lockers in the front and rear of a bobbed M35A2?
    I’m ordering a set this week and was wondering how the truck performs off road with them. I’m running 395/85/R20 Michelin XML tires

    You will need locking hubs to go with the DT. locker in the front.

    Jack up one side of an axle with a Detroit in it and you can rotate or unlock that side.
    I think what the decal refers to about jacking up the vehicle is not to power the axle with one wheel off the ground. The vehicle will leave the jack behind.

    The center piece of Eaton is a forged steel alloy and the OEM center and outside clutch dogs are made from 8620, the same thing as ring & pinions.
