    Am I right on saying the vehicle is a part time 4x4 with open diffs? What is your opinion on the best way/best lock to add to lock up the rear or front diff. Open diffs just do not cut it. I was wondering why my 100 outperformed this 40 and open diffs would certainly scream that answer.

    By the way, I am familiar with ARB lockers, locktites, lockrites detroits. Just wanted to hear from the field.

    Thanks.

    ARB's have always work very well for me...

    Good luck!

    yes your 40 is part time with open diffs(unless someone added em)

    I am a big fan of ARB's as well, I actaully had a Roberts Locker(pre ARB) in my 87 4runner

    mine is 99.9% trail only....I have welded rear spiders and a front EZ-lock. I'd have ARB's if I wasn't so cheap....or an E-locker...or something else that's selectable...

    ARB is the only way for me. I daily drive my 40. Just picked up one for the rear.
