I have a lock rite in the rear of my kick and I find it works really good on and off road, it is a bit noisey but you get used to it, and as far as I know it is the cheapest way to go other than wielding the diff.

I thought detroit and lockrite are 100% ingaged all the time!!!

nope, they are a mecanical locker.

the only things that are 100% engaged are spools and welded. otherwise they ratchet when turning except under load

With the 30in tires it may work better for you but I would do so research if I were you. I'm not up to speed with zuk gearing....(new to the zuk thing)

Get a set of front and rear trackick 3rds (5.13) and put the samuri trackick 3rd into the sami housing and then take the R&P outta the trackick 3rd and put it into the steel sami front 3rd ;)

Works pretty good, while your at it add a locker :D

The 5.13 comes in all trackicks with Manual trannys and a 8v motor i belive

so lockrite and detroit does not make any difference in daily road driving???

they make some difference but it is worth it for the off road inprovment and donut capabilities :D
