Default what locker

Trying to decide if an eaton elocker is worth the extra $400 over a $200 lock rite locker I understand how the elocker and lockrite work. There is a good bit of snow and ice up here not to mention I like off roading. I guess the question is if its worth the money to have an open diff on the road.

I would go with something like this http://www.4wheelparts.com/Drivetrai...n=EAT19660-010. That is if you have the money to spend on a good locker.

factory comes with a limited slip. and if it swings out, just go with it lol turn the wheel the same way the bed is sliding out towards. I usualy do it on purpose in the snow lol
