Question, if I have the dough for installing EZ Locker for only one axel, which should I choose. The front or the rear?

Fixing up a Devil's Den XJ to the point of getting up a little better than the bunny hills. Frt is equiped with Dana 30's and the rear has a Chrysler Corporate 8.25 w/o limited slip.

The front seems to be more beneficial than just the rear to me.

Well with 3 solid votes for the front and one on the fence but leaning to the frt, the front axel it is. Thanks for helping. The garage that will do the work suggested the front also. I'm really looking forward to having some traction on the hills!

Don't get too big with your tires on that D30.[/QUOTE]

Can't with only 3 1/2 inch lift. I've got 31 x 10.5 AT and I'm ok with em. Just there won't be any Axel Breaker or 25' rock walls in my future.

rear, less breakage and easier to push over a hill than pull over a hill as wieght transfers to rear going up regardless of engine location. just my opinion, from doing frt first then rear then both.

Ditch the ez-locker and get a lock-right, they are much stronger and I havent heard to many horror stories like I have with the ez-locker.
OK, finally someone has stepped up to the plate with an opinion regarding the brand/make of locker! What are the pros and cons of the EZ Locker vs the Lock-Right? Costs difference?

Can someone explain the axel welding senario in 1000 words or less. Welding sounds permanent.
