E-Locker or Bust!
What, an inner axle shaft isn't easy to swap out on the trail? :flipoff2:Just catching up on this thread, here to offer far more than my 2 cents. :flipoff2:
To your tire question, I just did my first wheeling trip on Nitto Trail Grapplers and am beyond impressed. So big vote there from me.
I'm a huge fan of KISSS for differentials. Keep it simple and strong stupid! I run a Detroit style front and rear. Factory 14B gov-lock rear and Yukon Grizzly front. No BS to go wrong, super predictable. The selectable fan-boys can suck it :flipoff2: And before the selectable group get on my case... Yes I drove my junk on the street. A lot.
As for hubs I'm a huge fan of the Yukon hardcore hubs. I've taken some detailed pictures of them against the Warn's and the strength difference is so obvious its not even funny. That said there's something said for having a weak link that's real easy to swap out on the trail.
