BNJeep put one on his after he broke his front diff. He likes it alot. If you broke to stocker w/ the 29.5s I am sure things will not get better after the Dgl is installed.

It creates greater traction having both tires pulling. If you are hard on the throttle and a tire suddenly grabs, something could break. Same thing could happen w/ a stock diff. You basically double your chances, since both tires are spinning not just one. Throttle control is key.

not necessarily... since it is not locked all of the time. from wahat I under stand it has a limited slip until one tire starts spinning so much faster than the other, then it catches and both tires pull. that is the only way I can se it working. usually when you break stuff it is because the front is in the air spinning freely and when you come down on it it cathces traction and cant help but break...same thing with stock diff. when in air the y dont have resistance so both tires are pulling and when it comes down something is just as likely to break. unless you have a spool locker.

When the tires are straight the tires are locked. I tonly slips when the wheels turn to compensate for differences in the ground covered by the front tires.

so basically it is always locked but when turning one spins faster than the other as oposed to where a stock diff wont be pulling with one tire at all....right?
